This is Siobhan who is celebrating being a qualified instructor for a year. Here's her experience of the journey to becoming a baby massage, baby yoga and toddler yoga instructor with To Baby and Beyond.

"After two maternity leaves from my school teaching job, I knew I was wanting more from my career, and I knew that having my children had hugely changed my perspective on what I believed to be important and significant in my life now.
"I relished the time with my little ones when on maternity leave and took them to as many classes and events as possible - and completely fell in love with Baby Massage.

"After spending a great deal of time researching into training, I came across To Baby and Beyond, and have never looked back! From the initial phone call about which courses were suitable, to the Skype calls with my amazing mentor, even down to the online learning that I could do when my girls were in bed in the evenings.

"I found myself eager to learn due to the nature of the online courses and the depth at which I could lose myself in the learning when completing assignments. The Baby Massage, Baby Yoga and Toddler Yoga courses were full of research, videos, advice and guidance and I always felt that I could ask questions and get support whenever I needed, especially in the Facebook group full of other qualified instructors with years of experience.

"Lockdown was, of course, a difficult time for everyone, but made just that little bit easier knowing there were other qualified instructors like myself, sharing advice, support and ideas in such a growing community and I'm thankful to be part of that.

"Since qualifying, I've left my school job to set up my own classes and one of the best parts about it? Getting to be at the school drop-off and pick up every day for my eldest who has just started school because I am now in charge of my own time!

"I know I won't miss any of these important moments any more, and I will still be doing an important job supporting new parents in their exciting journey into parenthood - all thanks to Julie and everyone at To Baby and Beyond."
