So excited to announce the arrival of baby James – who was born at the beginning of January – the first baby in our little Daisy community to be born so far this year.
This was the second time that M had attended classes with me – the first for her daughter during which she went on to have a natural birth and the second for her son which was a planned C section for a breech presentation. M now has two different but equally beautiful birth experiences under her belt. Looking forward to seeing you back in baby classes M – Congratulations!

“Words can not describe how glad I am that I made the decision to do antenatal classes with Carrie and Daisy Birthing It gave me all the confidence and tools that I needed to enjoy and make the most of my pregnancy as well as create the perfect birthing experience. I had a homebirth and used Daisy techniques as my only pain relief. It was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend these classes to anyone ” Anna
“Carrie is a wonderful teacher and so knowledgeable, I can not recommend her and the daisy classes enough! This was one of the highlights of my pregnancy. Each week I looked forward to relaxing, taking the time to learn and just thinking about my baby. I always walked away feeling so calm and happy. Carrie made me feel like I had confidence, I had learned so much about what to expect and about my choices during labour. I do feel like all pregnant women should go to daisy classes as knowledge is power!” Amy
“Carrie is amazing! Would 100% recommend the Daisy Active Birth workshop for couples. So well informed and lots of techniques and advice which will be so helpful. Carrie is really caring and kind and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable. Am looking forward to attending her post-natal classes also! Thank you Carrie for all your help for me and my husband! X” Lauren
“We completed the Daisy Parent course and loved it! Carrie’s knowledge and enthusiasm was evident from the very beginning and the way she adapted the course to be online, via zoom was brilliant. She made us feel very welcome even though we were meeting on-screen and each session was delivered with the right level of interaction and information. It was great to hear about all the techniques, these were remembered into the labour and will continue to be used in the future. We were given the best possible start to our lives as parents by Carrie and the course.” Becky
“Absolutely loved Carrie’s Daisy classes! It was very relaxing – think Hypnobirthing meets Yoga with some practical education thrown in! I met some lovely Mums-to-be & Carrie was a great teacher. She is very down to earth, knowledgeable & genuine and I liked that she could draw on her own birthing experiences when teaching the class. I’d highly recommend Daisy Classes as most of all it teaches you to feel confidant and empowered, and that we do have control over our birthing experiences! xxx” Laura

Hi, I’m Carrie, mum of two amazing children. It was quite a challenging journey into parenthood, but one I am incredibly grateful for. I now split my time between being a Mummy, a Paediatric nurse and a Daisy Teacher.
I have nursed for several years, but after becoming a parent I found that I wanted to support families during pregnancy and early parenthood in another way.
And so, since 2015 I have been running pregnancy, birth and baby preparation workshops alongside postnatal & baby classes. These classes currently run in Emersons Green, Warmley and Kingswood.
I really feel passionately that pregnancy is one of the most special and important times in a family’s life, and I love that I can to help enhance that special time even more, as well as empowering people to make confident and informed choices about pregnancy, birth and parenthood.
What can I do for you?
I am delighted to be offering the continuous perinatal support that is so important during pregnancy and new parenthood as well as enabling the relationships built by mums in birthing classes to grow as they continue their journeys together postnatally, peer support is such an important part of new mummyhood, and being able to spend time bonding with baby in a calm relaxing environment is invaluable.
It is a privilege to be able to support and hold space for women and their families from 14 weeks of pregnancy through until her child turns 2 years old.
We keep it real, we use evidence based content, and we enjoy relaxed, flexible and fun workshops.
A positive birth is a birth which is understood with confidence and empowerment throughout, even if your journey veers from your original preference.
I offer continuous perinatal support and perinatal education to Mums and Families across the Bristol , South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset area with mums and families from the wider region attending my classes and workshops, which are centralised in Emersons Green, Warmley and Kingswood. With a background in Paediatric Nursing, Research Nursing and of course my own experience with my two children I bring a wealth of experience to my role as a Daisy Foundation Perinatal Educator.
Please take a look at the “My Classes” section below to find out more about what I can offer you.
I am looking forward to meeting you!
