Before becoming a mummy I’d spent many years working as a busy Human Resource Manager in a local school.
After the arrival of my first little boy, Hugo in 2013 my world was turned upside down. Structure, order and routine had all disappeared from my life and I was left in chaos with a baby that I struggled to keep stimulated.
After feeling isolated and at a loss I decided to go along to a local Baby Sensory class…WOW is the word that I would use to describe that first class. I had found my life line! I remember thinking to myself that I wish I had come to these classes sooner. My little boy who was so hard to entertain at home was captivated, he was so engaged and I could see how much he was enjoying it there. I learnt techniques to engage and stimulate him that I could use at home and I felt so much closer to my little man, it definitely helped with our bonding.
I used to look forward to my classes every week where I soon made some great friendships with other local mums, we even decided to have a joint Baby Sensory 1st Birthday party with two other boys who were only a couple of weeks older than Hugo.
My second baby boy Harry came along in 2015. He arrived a little earlier than hoped and was a teenie tiny 2lb 15oz. Having such a rough start in life I was keen to give him the same wonderful experiences Hugo had and I started taking him to Baby Sensory sessions as soon as he was well enough. He too loved it!!
I feel so passionately about the benefits that Baby Sensory has to offer, not only to baby but to mums as well that I was over joyed when I discovered there was an opportunity to run my very own classes. After having my boys I knew I could not return to my previous life as a HR Manager. I had been changed by becoming a mummy and I knew I had to do something different with my life. I now feel excited about my work and I look forward to giving you the same wonderful memories that my Class Leaders gave to me.
