Julie is a qualified KG Hypnobirthing teacher, baby massage and baby yoga instructor and has over 20 years experience as a midwife. She tells us why she set up The Blossoming Birth Company and how they can support you throughout your labour journey. Two years ago our lives changed completely when our first Grandchild was born. For lots of reasons he could not stay with his mum, so my husband and I became his Special Guardians, at that point I gave up my wonderful career to be with him full time. Two years on he is a fantastic, loving, inquisitive little boy and I felt it was time for me to do something new, something that would give back to the community that had supported me so well during times that had been tough. And so I founded The Blossoming Birth Company, a way for me to give back, support new mums and families and use my experience....... a win, win situation. I have a wonderful advantage that I will share with you during my classes and that is the knowledge on how you can positively navigate the current NHS maternity system to ensure it works FOR you and not against you. I understand how important it is for ALL women to be prepared both physically and psychologically, women need to trust and follow the twists and turns of their birth with the appreciation that birth is normal and natural. Hypnobirthing will help all women and their birth partners through their birth journey……. I’ve seen its impact first-hand, it is an empowering tool, whether your birth is an elective caesarean birth or a home water birth. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and your journey… I believe in you, and I want to help you believe in yourself. Once baby is here our baby massage and baby yoga courses offer an easy going and sociable opportunity for you to bond with your baby, learn techniques to help develop your baby's mobility and relaxation, as well as helping with teething, colic and reflux. It will also help build your confidence when handling that tiny, fragile little human… and you never know you may build long-lasting, local friendships too.

Family Centres Children's Centres in Surrey have been through a period of transition. Some have closed and some have become Family Centres. Family Centres will work with families to help them keep their children safe and give them a good parenting experience. Family Centre staff will be trained to help families identify and find solutions to the parenting and relationships challenges they face and to grow in confidence to manage future difficulties. The aim of the Family Centres is to help families build their own resilience and self-reliance. Below is a list of the current Family Centres: Buckland Family Centre, Laleham, Staines, 01784 227977 Chertsey Family Centre, 01784 464395 Clarendon Family Centre, Ashford, 01784 424759 Guildford Family Centre, Hazel Avenue, Guildford, 01483 566589 Saxon Family Centre, Shepperton, 01932 569742 Stanwell Family Centre, 01784 241407 Sythwood Family Centres, various locations in Woking, 01483 727900 The Haven Family Centre, Englefield Green and Staines, 01784 464395 The Spinney FamilyCentre, Southway, Guildford, 01483 566589 Woking Family Centre, 01483 730517 Please go to www.surreycc.gov.uk for more information.
