I started Baby Steps 16 years ago while working in London as a Paediatric Nurse & Health Visitor & could see there was a gap for friendly, supportive courses for new parents. I also wanted the option of better working hours for family life rather than shifts.

I offer courses & events to support new parents in their first steps together. First Aid, Weaning, Baby Massage, Relax & Pamper. They are all about giving reassurance, confidence & the chance for parents to catch their breath and be heard.
We lived in London until 3 years ago where I offered them in people's homes. Now I have a beautiful studio in the woods in Hampshire which is a calming, welcoming retreat. I am looking to create the same safe space online with courses and a signature programme.
