/ The Daisy Foundation with Gemma Orrell

Welcome to Daisy Upholland & Surrounding Areas

Hi, I’m Gemma and l offer antenatal classes, parent & birthing classes in Upholland, West Lancashire. Choose from classes including birth preparation workshops, birth relaxation and infant feeding/breastfeeding workshops.

Expectant and new parents come to my antenatal classes from across the wider area local to Upholland where my classes are based, including from Ormskirk, Skelmersdale, Appley Bridge, Parbold, Standish, Shevington, Eccleston and more.

I share my time between caring for my own 2 children, working full time and building up this wonderfully supportive community of Daisy mamas. My antenatal classes offer you the full continuity of care and support, from those early weeks of pregnancy all the way through to birth.

Details of all classes can be found on this page. If you need any more information at all, please email Gemma-Orrell@TheDaisyFoundation.com. You can also read reviews from other ladies and couples and follow me on Facebook, and Instagram.

Antenatal Classes and Birthing Classes:

Daisy Parent – A comprehensive workshop series for expectant parents designed to ensure you have all the education, tools and support you could need as you prepare confidently for birth and the early days of caring for your new baby. Our comprehensive Daisy Parent format draws on elements of active birth, parentcraft and traditional antenatal classes.  We cover everything from birth plans to massage in labour, informed choice to packing hospital bags and feeding your baby to changing their nappy.

Daisy Birthing – A weekly yoga-based antenatal class for pregnant ladies to help you enjoy pregnancy, stay mobile, learn about your changing body, and prepare for a confident birth. Our Active Antenatal method draws on elements of active birth, pregnancy yoga, hypnobirthing, and antenatal education. Suitable from 14 weeks pregnant.

Active Birth Workshop – A workshop for pregnant ladies and their birth partners that covers active birth, stages of labour, working with gravity to support your baby’s birth, massage for labour, to help inform your own individual choices.
