So here is it, my very first blog……

Here goes….. a business milestone for me, my very first blog!

My children would be highly embarrassed if they knew I was starting a blog as ‘I’m not the coolest mum around’ however here I am, trying to catch up with the ever evolving world we live in.

A little about me (must remember, this is not an interview!)

As a mum of three, life certainly comes with it’s challenges. My 20’s were dedicated to my children’s school pick ups, ever changing clubs and toddler tantrums. I worked every job under the sun (each of which I could find a flaw with) but just grinned and bared them so that I could embrace those freshly bathed, crispy dressing gown night time snuggles. Now they are older, that all seemed so easy.

Fast forward 13 years and the hard part begins, time to find my identity again. After much deliberating, I decided to take the plunge and turn my passion into my career.  Scared is an understatement but only because I’m coming out of my ‘baggy jumper and top knot’ mummy comfort zone.

I’m currently just about to finish my first year in a university degree, training to be an antenatal teacher and postnatal practitioner whilst also completing training to become a doula. These subjects open many perinatal and parenting discussions and choices which I would love to explore more in these blogs.

Now to decide what to explore first…



A bit more about me

My name is Louise and I live in St. Neots, Cambridgeshire. I support families through pregnancy, birth and beyond in St. Neots, Cambridge, Bedford, Peterborough Milton Keynes, Royston, Stevenage and surrounding villages.

Whether you are a first-time parent or have children already, having a new baby is a different experience every time. As a mum of three children, I understand that the care you receive during your pregnancy, labour and after giving birth can be outstanding, however, when you don’t have the assistance from professionals, it can often feel like an overwhelming and daunting experience.

I have supported women throughout pregnancy and birth for many years but as my children are now older, I have decided turn my passion into a career and completed my Doula training with Nurturing Births. I am enthusiastic about the physiology and psychology of giving birth; this is why I became a doula.

I have a desire to continue the care that you receive after having your baby by supporting new parents with feeding, sleeping routines, baby massage and yoga or just simply having someone to talk to. I have vast experience with caring for newborn’s and babies through previous job roles within maternity services, also first-hand experience whilst raising my own children.

I completed my baby massage and yoga instructor course with ‘Hands on Babies’ and have loved watching the babies reaching major milestones like lifting their heads, rolling over, crawling and walking. I have facilitated baby massage and yoga courses in my local area and thoroughly enjoyed these classes as I met some amazing new parents who formed lasting friendships with each other. I also teach 1:1 sessions, tailoring massage and yoga to the family’s needs and desires.

I regularly volunteer at my local NCT groups, supporting the parents informed choices and signposting them to support that might be useful. I also enjoy attending the local breastfeeding drop-in clinics as I like to meet parents and hear about their feeding journey.

I am currently studying to become an Antenatal teacher and Postnatal practitioner. When I complete my qualification, I can facilitate antenatal and postnatal courses to empower new parents but also give refresher courses to parents who already have children.

I love to support families during these special times and milestones. I feel it is a special privilege to be invited into a new family’s space and empower them in the decisions they make.

I am happy to travel up to 40 miles from St. Neots to provide support for new parents.
