About Us

Beautiful New Beginnings aims to support and empower parents from pregnancy to school age. We believe that Radical Kindness Promotes Generational Change.

OUR ANTENATAL COURSES ARE NOW FREE TO JOIN AND RUNNING VIA FACEBOOK LIVE EVERY MONDAY NIGHT. WE WANT TO SUPPORT YOU ON YOUR PREGNANCY JOURNEY THROUGHOUT THIS TIME OF SOCIAL ISOLATION! SAME EXPERTS, SAME CONTENT, SAME COMMUNITY, JUST NOT FACE TO FACE! 

 

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.

    positive review  Casual walk to school to see a little boy choking ... went to panic but remembered what Carolyn had said during a conversation about her first aid for parents course & I managed to calm mum down & explain to her that when we can hear the cough he’s not got a blocked air way & swilling him with water won’t work because he was actually having a little panic attack & needed to take a breath in through his nose which he did as soon as he heard me say it & his whole body relaxed & he finished his ice cream .... mum was amazing & I’m so happy to have learnt all about children’s first aid. Thank you Cal x

    5 star review  Fantastic course! Each week a new topic was covered in detail, which really helped calm my anxieties about birth and becoming a parent. We were given lots of tips and advice and as a result I feel so much more prepared for the arrival of our little one.Thank you!
