I have two sons, Tom aged 26 and Jack aged 23.
I took up exercise when I got pregnant with my first son Tom and continued to exercise safely throughout both of my pregnancies.
Because I found that exercising made me feel so much better about myself and really helped me to cope with my pregnancy and birth, I wanted to share the benefits of it with the mothers I was caring for as a midwife, and so I decided to bite the bullet and take a course to allow me to teach Aquanatal Classes, which I did in 1993 and since then I have never looked back.
I have always had a strong interest in encouraging mothers to exercise whilst pregnant and ran both Aquanatal and Aquarobic Classes in Birmingham for 14 years before I moved to live in Antigua in the Caribbean in 2005. Whilst living in Antigua I continued to teach exercise on a regular basis including Spinning, Circuit Training and Antenatal Yoga Classes. I have worked and still work as midwife full time since 1991 and was a Midwifery Sister both on the Labour Ward and in the Community for many years. Since moving back to the UK I have worked as a Project Midwife at the West Midlands Perinatal Institute and still work full time as a Community Midwife for City Hospital as well as on the Birth Centres Serenity and Halcyon.
I am passionate about helping mothers and fathers to achieve the birth of their choice, supporting them as much as they need me to along their journey. Over the years I have found that practising antenatal yoga breathing and hypnobirthing techniques are two of the most effective and safest ways around to help parents to achieve the calm, serene and intimate birth that they desire.
As Caron is the longest serving, most experienced and only combined Antenatal Yoga Teacher, Hypnobirthing Instructor and Midwife in the West Midlands, her Antenatal Yoga Classes and Hypnobirthing Courses are second to none, they have a proven track record and have been enjoyed by many 'mothers -to- be' over the last 28 years with many coming back to her in subsequent pregnancies.
