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.
Carolyn came out to my house for a baby massage course with my twins this afternoon. They’re 8 months old and rolling all over the place so quite hard to keep in one place but Carolyn was brilliant with them and really patient and we covered all the massages with both babies. I can now confidently continue them in my own time and definitely will because both babies were out like a light at 6.15pm!

My partner and I have recently completed an antenatal course and we couldn't recommend it highly enough. It was so informative and we learnt so much making us feel much better prepared for the arrival of our little one! If you're thinking of booking on to a course, do it, you won't regret it!

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

Attended the starting school and school readiness course today and can’t recommend it enough. I think we all have a little idea what stage we would like our children to be at when they start school but attending today really pointed out what was most important. The course offered some invaluable advice and techniques on how to give our children the best start to reception and the important things to focus on. I would definitely recommend this course to any parents of children due to start school.
