Welcome to The Daisy Foundation, where you can enjoy a variety of Pregnancy classes – Antenatal courses & Baby classes.
My name is Nici, I am your local Daisy teacher and birth Doula. As a Mum of 3 crazy humans, life is pretty busy, but I am lucky enough to say I have my dream job!
I run Pregnancy classes, birth and baby preparation workshops alongside postnatal & baby classes. These classes currently run in Yeovil and North Cadbury (Nr Wincanton). As a Doula I cover much of South Somerset.
Whatever your Antenatal or Postnatal needs – we have you covered.
Little bit about my journey:
After gaining my BND in social care studies I became a Nanny for several years with the goal to becoming a Midwife when the time was right.
Lucky enough to have the honor of being a birth partner 4 times over the years, I finally got my act together and went back to college to further my education & knowledge in the birthing world.
After completing A Levels and spending time as a volunteer in my local maternity unit, I popped it all on hold for the birth of my daughter in 2014.
In 2016, ready to get back in the driving seat, I stumbled across The Daisy Foundation. The rest, as they say, is history!
More recently I have added the beautiful role of birth doula to my collection, I am in the swing of creating a separate website & social media for this. Please contact me direct in the meantime :0)
Why The Daisy Foundation?
Why Daisy over Midwifery? In a nutshell. Continuity of care. Becoming a Perinatal educator allows me to remain a part of a woman’s journey. From as early as 14 weeks in pregnancy right through to her child turning 2 years.
Because of my own experiences, the birth content and parenting education by The Daisy Foundation hugely attracted me. We keep it real. We use evidence based content. And we enjoy relaxed, flexible & fun workshops.
What is a positive birthing experience?
A positive birth is a birth which is understood with confidence & empowerment throughout, even if your journey veers from your original preferences.
I look forward to getting to know you and welcoming you in to the supportive & sociable Daisy community. Nici x
