Anita Davies | Guernsey
I have been immersed in the pregnancy, birth and parenting world since 2003, offering antenatal education since 2007 and birth doula support since 2008 and more recently with BabyCalm where I offer courses and workshops focusing on early parenting. I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting all expectant and new parents with their babies over the years through the courses and groups I facilitate.I have three young children and combine teaching and birth support alongside lecturing at the College of FE. I am also an Active Birth Teacher, Hypnobirthing teacher, Pregnancy Yoga teacher, Postnatal Mother & Baby yoga teacher, BabyCalm consultant and the only active Birth Doula on island (supporting women and their partners throughout birth) which enhances my education facilitation (and is an incredible privilege). I am also proud to be a trustee of Friends of Loveridge which is our local maternity charity whose aim is to improve the birth environment for women using the local maternity services.
Parents-to-be don’t join my courses to passively learn how to birth or how to be a parent. They actively learn over many sessions about choice, informed decision making, empowering birth, responsive babycare and confident parenting. They learn this from discussions with others going through similar life experiences, from listening, watching and trying things for themselves and exploring what choice means and equipping themselves with the skills to navigate the birth and parenting journey ahead. This is the ethos of BabyCalm - gentle and responsive parenting for our babies.
In a typical week, I am in contact with over thirty parents-to-be and then over sixty mothers and their babies postnatally. We once again talk, reflect, laugh, listen, cry and share the journey together. As both a mother and an educator/facilitator, this real learning happens when we are together as a small community in a group and take time out to pause and reflect on different perspectives of our experiences.
I am a mother. I am a teacher. I am a birth professional and BabyCalm consultant
And combining my passion for all these roles, I aim to help support your experience of pregnancy, birth and raising your baby in Guernsey as a very positive experience.
