Right! September is here and for every day this month The Little Birth Company have set a kickstart challenge (a good kick up the butt was needed after a summer hols of trying to fit work in where I could 😂 … totally bossed that though 🙌🏻) and this is day 1!
So! Who am I?
This has come at a good time, because it’ll be good to intro myself to you 👋🏻🙌🏻
I’m Kate, I’m 37 and I’m from Milton Keynes!
(Feel like I’m on Blind Date! 😂)
I am a Mummy to 2 very awesome little girls, wife to one very brilliant husband and feeder, walker, snuggler and general ball thrower to 2 cockapoos 💓
I was born in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and have a fierce love for the city … and thankfully I have my awesome aunties who live up in Northumberland and who we are all going to bundle up and visit next year 🙌🏻🤪💓 so will stop in Newcastle and show the girls where Mummy’s from ☺️
I moved all round the country with my Dad’s work and spent a big ol chunk of my childhood in and around Stamford and then a town called Oundle
I met Andy and followed him to MK…I bloody love it here! So much for us to do, so much green space, countryside on our doorstep and a great place for families 💓
I’ve never quite known exactly what it is I wanted to do but it was pretty much ground into me that in order to be ‘successful’ I needed to work in a big corporation, preferably in London….so after doing my degree, I started to climb the corporate ladder and worked my way up in HR. I loved it at the time and am grateful for my time working in the companies I did and with the people I did ⭐️
I’ve always had a fascination with the mind/body connection though and it was through having my babies that I discovered hypnobirthing and that was it for me. The power of the human body blows my mind and birth just makes me go ‘WOW’ all the time! So I knew that, when I found myself at a career crossroads, retraining and setting up my own business to support women during pregnancy, birth and postnatally was just my cup of tea!
I am ALWAYS learning and feel like I am just scratching the surface when it comes to my birth knowledge! And I know a shed load more than the average bear! 😂
I love to read and research so will always make sure I have the most up to date info for my clients, but equally I am humble enough to admit when I need to go away and look at something further 😆👀
I have some great connections in the birth world too, that I can turn to as needed, and we are lucky that MK has some kick ass practitioners who really give a shit about properly supporting women and their families 🙌🏻
I believe in the monumental power of meditation and loves a bit of Reiki and crystal healing ✨
I LOVE to exercise…and think it so important to be STRONG 💪🏻… so I weight train, I do Pilates and yoga, I run (less at the moment because I’m taking some time off running!), I like HIIT (NOT burpees!) and walking ☺️ and I’m thinking of adding rock climbing back into the mix…but we’ll see!
I like to cook, I love to travel and I treasure any time I get to spend with my family and favourite people 💕
I love to be by the sea but equally the mountains call to me and skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer is just about the best it gets! ✨
I love music, I love to dance and I bloody love a good box set and get totally sucked in 😂
I LOVE TO LAUGH…and you’ll find that in my courses!…yes, I take what I do very seriously but I don’t take myself very seriously and I think it’s bloody important to have fun! 😆
Hmmmm…so that’s a little about me … stay tuned this month as I post more about me, my business and birth and get in touch if you want to find out more about working with me!
