Claire - Chelmsford - Mother and Baby Club

After training as a pilates teacher 6 years ago with a very holistic school (specialising in pre and post natal pilates) I wanted to approach birth in the same manner. I attended the hypnobirthing course in Billericay 4 years ago during my first pregnancy and was over the moon to find support in Jo and Emily, whose mindset was so in tune with my own.

After a fairly straightforward hypnobirth, I attended several coffee mornings and baby massage at Babies in Waiting HQ, because as a new mum I felt a little clueless to begin with and it was such a welcoming and supportive atmosphere. We are so prepared for birth and labour but nobody really supports you with what to do next! I'm really excited to now be a part of the Babies in Waiting team myself. Having support after birth is so important and to be able to share my experience and help others as Babies in Waiting have helped me over the past four years is something I am so proud to be part of. I now have two girls and a cocker spaniel, which keep me very busy in between teaching pilates classes and meeting new mums at the Mother and Baby club.

My classes run weekly in the calm, quaint village of Writtle, where you will make invaluable new friends and enjoy some time out to bond with your baby as well as learn relaxation techniques and soothing strokes.
