Nicky Woodhatch - Owner/Antenatal & Baby Teacher
I am first and foremost mum to three children, Evie (mummy number 2) 10, Darcey (the spirited one) 8 and Jasper (the totally nuts one) 3, my fourth baby is Mummas and Beans!!
I have been working with new mums for almost 8yrs. I decided to leave my office job as an admin manager following maternity leave with my eldest daughter nearly 10 years ago, having already trained in reflexology and massage I was nurturing a passion for birth, working more frequently with pregnant women wanting reflexology and then having a really positive birth experience with Evie, I embarked on my journey to change my working life!
I qualified in Reflexology, Holistic & Sports massage in 2005, Baby Massage with the IAIM in 2008, LK Massage (birth partner massage) in 2008, Maternity Reflexology 2008, Baby Reflex 2008, Daisy Birthing & Baby 2010, and training as a traditional Antenatal teacher 2014! I have always known I had a passion for babies, I have always loved tiny babies and been around them pretty much all my teenage and adult life, through baby sitting and nannying, having my own just sealed my fate!
I stepped back from day to day teaching in 2015, but am found behind the scenes, I still love being involved but having taught for 10yrs feel my energies are best spent elsewhere!
Steph - Daisy Birthing Teacher
Claire Dewhurst - Godalming (and Guildford) Mumma is Me Teacher
I am Claire, a local mother who discovered the joy of attending Mummas classes with my youngest baby. I am a Midwife by profession but knew instantly that one day I wanted to also train as a Mummas and Beans teacher! Now some years later I am excited that I will get to deliver classes in the local area and use the skills and knowledge gained as a Midwife coupled with all that I have learnt from my own personal and ever changing experiences of motherhood.
I believe the Mummas classes are so unique and the benefits many.. the power of touch in massage allowing for a beautiful bonding opportunity, the themes discussed in Newborn classes that help to reassure, the potential connections with other Mummas or the messy play in Sensory Mummas that brings out the giggles! It is important to me to facilitate all of this in a welcoming, inclusive and supportive environment and I look forward to witnessing the progression from newborn to older active baby and new mothers gain confidence in their mothering intuition. I can't wait for class to begin!
"Nicky's laid back, friendly and supportive approach is a huge relief during the early days of being a new parent. The calming techniques she taught me were an absolute lifesaver and I honestly don't know what we'd have done without her. Thank you so much Nicky!"
"I just thought I'd add, that I've really enjoyed the Daisy Birthing sessions, I think they are utterly brilliant, and have definitely prepared me for the impending birth - dare I say I'm actually looking forward to it??!?"
"These classes were the favourite part of my week from birthing right through to rising one. I will be back with baba number two!"
"I want to say a huge thank you to you for adding so much to my maternity leave. Through Daisy Birthing I've made friends who have been a huge support to both me and Cleo and will continue to be a big part of our lives. I hope you know what a community of happy and confident Mums you're developing through Mummas. Thank you."
