Beautiful New Beginnings was founded in 2016 by mum of three Carolyn Whitehead and became a Community Interest Company in 2018. The business idea was conceived around the same time as her third child Gracie, and out of a desire to support parents on their pregnancy and parenting journey.
As Beautiful New Beginnings flourished in the community, it also grew in team and we are blessed to have the most incredible team of experts working hard to deliver sessions.
Whatever class you step into, you can be sure that its led by a practicing expert in their field and that you will receive a warm welcome. We believe in creating and connecting communities and believe that in doing this, we can help combat loneliness. We are better together.

Here is what our lovely customers say about us on Facebook.
As a parent-to-be I am reading a lot of trying to get as much information I can. But the structure of the course and the professionals who deliver the session put things in perspective by also sharing their experience. I reccomend it to all new parents. Thank you Carolyn for all your help.

Just completed all three of the ‘starting school’ workshops. I can’t recommend enough! I now feel that I am able to support my daughter through her first year at school. Amazing resources and activities that really engaged my little girl. The teachers who ran it were enthusiastic, passionate and Incredibly helpful and supportive. Thank you so much! Laura Morris.

My husband & I were meant to be attending the January Antenatal Course, but sadly it was cancelled last minute. Carolyn was very apologetic, refunded us & offered us a free place on the First Aid Course. We attended the First Aid Course which we found really helpful & informative. Carolyn is a lovely friendly person & has fantastic knowledge and experience. She works with great healthcare professionals who have expertise in different areas. We found the first aid course really useful in providing up to date advice & current practical skills. We hope we’ll never have to use it, but we feel a lot more confident now we know what to do. Thanks to Carolyn & her team x
