Hear a little from Carrie:
“Hi , I’m Carrie, mum of two amazing children. Big Brother Noah and Baby Rosie.
I 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.
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 will be able to help enhance that special time even more, as well as empowering people to make confident and informed choices about pregnancy, birth and parenthood.
I am delighted to share that as of 2019 I will be beginning to offer the full package of Daisy classes, providing 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. “
