My Name is Nadine and I have a longstanding interest in child development and childcare. After the birth of my first child I decided to leave my career in retail buying and became one of the first people to achieve the EYPS (Early Years Professional Status), which I subsequently used to support and mentor other childcare students to achieve the same qualification.
I quickly realised that my interests and enthusiasm went further than children and child development and decided to expand my expertise to include pregnancy and childbirth.
Having had a difficult birth with my first child, I started to explore the various methods of childbirth preparation on offer and was really impressed by The Lazy Daisy Chain. Whilst expecting my second baby, I trained as a FEDANT approved Active Birth Mentor for Lazy Daisy and also completed the Baby Massage and Newborn Care modules. The birth of my daughter was a much better experience as I was able to use the Lazy Daisy techniques to remain calm, focused and positive.
Increasingly aware of the benefits of holistic therapies and having benefited from receiving treatments myself, I decided to add to the Baby Beginnings suite of services by gaining qualifications in Reflexology – specialising in fertility, pre and post natal reflexology, also holistic massage specialising in pregnancy massage.
So Baby Beginnings was born, and I am truly excited about being able to bring together my professional and personal experience in Early Years Education, Antenatal Education, Infant Massage and Newborn Care alongside Complementary Therapies. I am proud to be able to provide a holistic service where women can benefit from real continuity of care and access support and expert advice from prior to conception right through to the first years of baby’s life.
