About me
About Debra

I am a mum of 4 who is lucky enough to be doing my dream job!  I am passionate about what I do - I love to teach antenatal, baby massage and family first aid classes.  It is a pleasure to be involved with so many families at the start of their exciting journeys and then to see them grow up – I’m still in touch with families from my first course 20 years ago!

My vision is simple to share this precious experience and expertise with you so that you can really feel informed and empowered as you start out on your family life.

babymatters is a culmination of over 20 years of training and highly specialised ante and post natal experience. I trained and worked for the NCT before I started babymatters so I could concentrate to provide the best possible local antenatal and postnatal support.
