Mary-Clare Buckle | Dorset
Hi I’m Mary-Clare
I have twin sons and live with my husband, Andrew, in Abbotsbury, Dorset. I am 20 minutes away from Dorchester, Weymouth and Bridport and can also cover East Devon, Yeovil and anywhere else within reasonable driving distance.
I have been working with parents for several years. I have a run a home birth support group, help start the first Doula Birth companion courses in the UK and done training with La Leche League in Breastfeeding support. I run West Dorset Slings, am a sling/baby carrier 'Peer Supporter' and worked at the (now closed) Dorchester NCT Sling Library.
I am hoping to be able to share with you the BabyCalm philosophy of respect and empathy and - particularly - strengthening your bond with your baby. The whole process of bringing up our lovely twins was so fulfilling for us and continues to be, as they grow up. I want to help enable parents - and prospective parents - to look forward to having children, so that parenting can be as joyful for them as it is for me.

"So friendly and welcoming and genuinely interested in what we had to say. And clearly cared a lot about the subject matter. Provided links and reading material. Encouraged different viewpoints. Just talking to Mary-Clare and the other people on the course - reassured my concerns and questions are the same as others.
"Your Calm Parenting course had a really positive impact on both of us. I feel very blessed to have been supported so well throughout my journey and also to the lovely people-yourself included that I’ve met throughout my pregnancy"
