Childbirth Educator - Jules Oldroyd
I’ve been teaching childbirth education (CBE) classes since 2004 and am still as passionate about sharing the journey to parenthood with parents now as I was when I started on my Childbirth Education journey.
I have 4 boys, born in 2001, 2003, 2006 and 2009, all of which have led me along different parenting pathways. Parenting is probably the biggest “on the job” learning that I’ve ever done. It truly has been a roller coaster of a ride with each age and stage bringing different learnings and experiences at every twist and turn. I count myself as extremely fortunate to be able to share my passion of childbirth and parenting with new parents and be a small part of your exciting journey as you embark on your own fair ground ride.
In 2009 I began teaching Baby and You, the Parents Centre new parenting course which follows on from CBE classes. It’s so rewarding being able to help new Mums and Dads, troubleshooting all manner of issues, initially helping out with the top of the “Help Me” list which all new parents tend to face namely breastfeeding and sleeping issues. This complements my other main passion which is helping parents with breastfeeding issues. I trained as a Breastfeeding Peer Counselling Programme Administrator in 2015 which has enabled me to train mothers as Peer Counsellors to provide mother to mother peer support for breastfeeding issues within the community.
I have also been fortunate to be able to run some breastfeeding programmes for professionals who work with breastfeeding Mums. I am so fortunate to be able to do something that I love and look forward to meeting you at the start of your parenting journey.
