Firstly, I'm mummy to two little girls, they are my world and the reason Wildflower was set up - flexible working for mums is a minefield and the mummy guilt was non stop!
I’ve spent the past 22 years working with families in one role or another- from managing a large Early Years setting , working as an Independent Early Years Consultant & Trainer to working as a specialist Maternity nurse and Postnatal Nanny. I have run workshops and training events for well known pregnancy and early years organisations such as Surestart and the NCT, large day nurseries and also global baby class franchises.
Most recently I’ve designed and facilitated a range of successful classes and workshops for parents, babies and children- which include parenting support classes, forest school, baby massage, yoga & Reggio inspired play sessions. I have also designed a range of online courses for parents and postnatal professionals.
I have two degrees -Early years education and BA (hons) Integrated working with Children & Families. I’m also a Royal college of Midwives qualified Baby massage instructor and Yoga teacher specialising in pregnancy and postnatal yoga for mums and babies, children's yoga and infant mental health as well as being a holistic antenatal teacher. I hold an aromatherapy diploma and feel passionately that natural remedies really support family wellbeing.
Im constantly learning and updating my skills and recently trained to specifically support mums experiencing Birth Trauma related perinatal mental health issues. I also hold full 'Train the Trainer' insurance.
I love empowering mums to support one another, feel confident in their ability to meet their babies needs with love and find space in their week to take a moment to relax and be present.
