Preparing You For All Eventualities

LOUISE BROADBRIDGE – Midwife, Mother & Founder of Let’s Talk Birth & Baby

Let’s Talk Birth and Baby was founded in 2017 by Senior Midwife, Louise Broadbridge and is the face behind Instagram's @thehonestmidwife.

Louise has now delivered antenatal courses to over 45,000 expectant parents and has had lovely messages from 100s of new parents saying how pleased they were to have attended Let’s Talk Birth and Baby classes.

“The decision to found Let’s Talk Birth and Baby is as a result of caring for many couples who felt that despite having attended antenatal classes on reflection, they had not felt prepared when events deviated from the norm."

My hope and mission is that the classes will provide an affordable, safe, honest and evidence based education to prepare couples for every eventuality during labour and birth. In addition, our hope is to rewrite the rule book and fully support both formula and breastfeeding parents by focusing on both forms of infant feeding and really teaching the physiology of the milk production system to give those that want to breastfeed a great chance of success.

AMY TRIBE – Classical Opera Singer, Developmental Baby Massage Practitioner, Wife & Mother (she’s a busy lady!)

Amy trained as an Opera Singer in London, and spent much of her twenties touring the world, singing as a soloist in many of the most well-known operatic venues.

During this time she was the recipient of several prestigious awards, and recorded for the BBC and ITV, and has been invited to sing for Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family on several occasions.

Her training as an Opera Singer means she is able to bring intricate knowledge of the body’s breathing and muscular systems to combine with the practise of Developmental Baby Massage – working with babies all across the UK both in group formats and on a 1:1 consulting basis when necessary.

Whilst working as a professional singer, Amy was also heavily involved in Music Therapy for Children and has a particular interest in the effect of classical music on the outcome of babies in Neonatal Intensive Care wards. She is able to draw together this knowledge to give babies the best possible start in life helping children develop healthily – hitting their physical developmental milestones safely, relieving trauma in newborns, and working to combat Colic and other ailments seen in infants.

As a former solicitor, when her newborn son arrived and presented with colic symptoms, she felt powerless and totally helpless.

Over the five years that she has worked as a mum and baby wellness practitioner, she has worked with over 1000 families. Through Colic SOS, she offers one-to-one expert consultancy and developed her own process to help parents get to the bottom of their baby’s colic.
