  • My husband and I have just completed the workshops offered by Linda at Frombumps2babies after feeling wholly unprepared and overwhelmed at the prospect of becoming first time parents. All sessions were delivered at Linda’s beautiful cottage in small groups of couples. We found all sessions to be really well presented and explained, going into more detail than the NHS sessions and feeling a lot more personal. Linda is very knowledgable and that comes across in the sessions. Although we couldn’t get onto one of the hypnobirthing courses due to a clash in schedules, Linda helpfully talked us through some of the fundamental points and breathing exercises which has really lowered my anxiety around giving birth. Linda is a calming and reassuring influence. The couples massage session was done on a one to one basis. It was a real treat for me as my husband was shown how to massage me for pain relief in labour and we came away with a bottle of mixed massage oils to use on the day which smells divine and some lavender spray. The first aid session was a highlight for me as I’d not done anything like it before. I really enjoyed the fast paced dynamic of the session and won’t be forgetting the skills I learnt in a hurry. I’ve also had several pregnancy massages with Linda and can categorically say they’ve made a world of difference to how I’ve felt during pregnancy. I’d highly recommend booking some in! On the whole the workshops have been a brilliant way for my husband and I to do something together and bond over the pregnancy. A really fun and practical way to get the father involved.

  • I had my first pregnancy massage with Linda this morning and it was such a relaxing and calming experience. As soon as I arrived Linda made me feel at ease and comfortable. The music and hypnobirthing track that was on throughout made me feel very content and got me into the right mindset ready for labour. Linda checked the position of my baby and listened to her heartbeat which as many mum’s know, is the best sound in the world! Thank you again Linda, I’ll be back soon for either another prenatal massage if not then definitely a post natal massage - really looking forward to it! Xx

  • I have had a wonderful experience with Frombumps2babies throughout my pregnancy and beyond. The practical birthing session that Linda delivered was without a doubt the best information that I received about labour and birth - the workshop was incredibly practical, useful, and expertly delivered. I have also benefited hugely from attending Kerry’s Birthfit class in Bournville. Kerry is absolutely brilliant at fostering positive relationships amongst the ladies in the group and each week has involved much needed exercise, emotional support and practical help. I would thoroughly recommend Birthfit and am already looking forward to Mumfit with Kerry. Finally, the postnatal massage that I enjoyed in the second week after my baby’s birth was an incredibly important part of my recovery. Linda could not have been more welcoming to me, my husband and our newborn. The massage was heavenly and I went away feeling restored and encouraged. Thank you for looking after me so well! X

  • My husband and I attended both the Practical Birthing workshop and the Feeding & First Aid workshop. We really enjoyed both courses and found the information extremely useful. Linda’s positive and realistic advice has stayed with me and I plan to take her top tips to the labour room with me! In particular, she completely eased by apprehension about breastfeeding / bottle feeding. I now feel much more prepared for the arrival of our newborn. The fact Linda is a midwife is wonderful for parents to be. I found all her advice to be extremely useful and most of all delivered with a very positive approach. This is the only ante-natal course you need and I highly recommend anyone to book a course. P.s. Book in for a pregnancy massage too – it was a wonderfully relaxing experience (and the products used are gorgeous!) The fact Linda is a very experienced midwife made me feel completely at ease. I hope I can fit in another session before our baby arrives in a few weeks!
