Recent times have meant that a lot of classes have had to move online as and when guidance demands, and while our live and interactive classes and workshops are still as informative and fun as always, some of you are finding yourselves with hours to while away at home, so here are a couple of bundles I put together to help you pass some of that time a little more peacefully AND productively!
Head over to my blog to download your free bundle of Birth Affirmations or Mama Affirmations!
I’m a HUGE believer in the power of positive affirmations.
I used to have to ask my middle kid about eleventy billion times to put his clothes on after swimming (getting three kids dressed after swimming is not fun even at the best of times so this reeeeally tested my patience). Then we started using affirmations. The whole drive to the pool, while getting dressed to go in, and as soon as he came out we’d chant “I’m the best, I’m the best, I’m the best at getting dressed”.
Now, he’s always first!
Just sayin’ 😉
Hi, I’m Julia.
I’m a birth doula and postnatal doula (providing support for families before, during and after birth) and I offer weekly antenatal classes and birth, feeding and parenting workshops, and baby classes too, in and around Midlothian.
My range includes weekly pregnancy classes, workshops for birthing people to attend along with their birth partners, as well as Tinies and Wrigglers classes for baby, and a Mama class for postnatal women.
My background is in Psychology and I’m also a trained BFN Breastfeeding Peer Supporter, a Slingababy Baby Wearing Peer Supporter and have done a variety of courses in subjects such as aromatherapy, LGBTQI+ cultural competency and baby loss awareness.
I myself am a mother of three school aged children as well as our furry lock-down kitten Misty. I love a bit of wild swimming and occasionally head out on my SUP, and I’m a bit of a fairweather runner.
Details of all the classes I run can be found here on my page, but if you’d like to see more of what I do, you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram (@doulajuliaiddir on both platforms), check out some reviews of real, local parents, look up my doula services at www.juliaiddir.co.uk or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
