About My Classes

The Daisy Foundation Abergavenny, Brecon, Crickhowell & Hay-on-Wye

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

NB: Under current Tier 4 lockdown restrictions all classes will be delivered online (should restrictions be lifted during a term permitting in person classes again, we may only revert back to face to face if possible to do so with venue availability, so if you are booking please be aware that the class will likely be online for the duration of the 6 weeks).

Birthing classes work beautifully online with time to chat, relax, breathe, move, learn about your pregnancy and birthing body, empower your choices and boost your confidence around birth, as well as meeting other local mums, albeit virtually, to continue to support you and foster connection and community at this time when we all need it most. Your due date won't wait, so don't delay in preparing for your birth until we can safely meet face to face again, as unfortunately we can't be sure when that will be and we don't want you to miss out. Our online birthing classes give you everything you need for a more relaxing and supported pregnancy, and a confident and empowered birth, and you don't need any special equipment, just a computer, laptop or iPad, (You don't even need a yoga mat at home!)

Baby classes work really well online with time to chat, relax, breathe, move, reconnect with your postnatal body, empower your choices and boost your confidence around motherhood, as well as meeting other local mums, albeit virtually, to continue to support you and foster connection and community at this time when we all need it most. Online classes still give you that special, dedicated time to bond and connect with your baby, and other mums and babies too, even when online. You will still be part of a community and feel supported, learning calming and soothing massage and movement techniques for abby and lots of baby care and motherhood support and confidence to take away with you, at a time when this is needed more than ever. 

Your baby's development and your wellbeing is important, so don't delay in signing up for baby classes until we can safely meet face to face again, as unfortunately we can't be sure when that will be and we don't want you and your baby to miss out on this important time building bonds, connections, confidence and stimulating baby's growth and development. 

Please be assured that our online classes will remain interactive, using a video platform where we can all still see one another and you will have lots of opportunity to chat, connect , ask questions and feel truly supported, just as in a face to face class. Classes include support emails, facebook group access, what’s app  group set-up and I am always reachable via email, call or video link-up should you need it during class terms classes and beyond as I believe strongly in a continuity of care.  

NB: Face to face classes will resume with comprehensive health and safety measures in place, when safe to do so and when restrictions have been lifted in Wales. Your safety and comfort is our priority and we all have a responsibility to keep each other safe and stay at home currently but your antenatal care, support and education will continue online with the same great content and support as always.

My priority is to support you, inform your choices and to help you to navigate these waters with positivity, confidence and community.
