Meet Our Team
Hypnobirthing Teacher and co-founder of Parent Prep
Hi, I’m Caroline, mum of two daughters and a baby son. I have been a secondary school teacher for much of my career which I have very much enjoyed. However, since having my two daughters I became more and more interested in antenatal education. I had two very different birth experiences myself which really got my thinking about how feeling prepared and in control of your pregnancy and the upcoming birth can have such a positive impact on the birth itself.
Midwife and co-founder of Parent PrepHi, I’m Julia. First and foremost, I am a Mummy to a super (ish!) 8 year old girl, Libby! I am also a registered and practicing Nurse and a Midwife. In my early Nursing career I worked with families during early pregnancy. As a Midwife I worked on the labour ward and in the maternity operating theatre. Latterly I have worked in research that explored how to make sure patients were safe and had a good experience when receiving NHS care.
What People Are Saying
Jenny & Jemima
I joined the group for the postnatal element and would highly recommend it as a refresher to any second(/third?) time mums. My elder daughter is 7 years old so it felt a long time since feeding / weaning / having a newborn. The sessions were all really helpful, informative and felt like a very safe environment. The first aid session was great, I mostly wanted to know how to deal with choking and feel better prepared now. It’s been really good to meet other mums at the same stage as I am. Thank you Caroline and Julia.
Elizabeth, Ian and Lily
The course was very helpful and presented in a fashion that was easy to understand and informative. The ladies both clearly are very passionate about what they do which makes it easier to appreciate where they are coming from, and approachable which was one of the most important aspects. We never felt that we were asking a stupid question and were made to feel very comfortable.
Louise, Tony & Sebby
Great relaxed and informal atmosphere, comfortable environment and really enjoyed every session (even Tony was sad the sessions were due to end). Great dynamic between Caroline and Julia who are clearly passionate and subject matter experts.
