A BIT ABOUT ME
My name is Shelley Wilson and I am the founder of Baybee Beginnings, a wellness company that delves into all aspects of pregnancy, childbirth, infant feeding and beyond. I am passionate about empowering, nourishing and nurturing parents and babies throughout the beginning of their exciting life journey.
I began my own journey in 1989 when I went to study Sociology at Portsmouth University, quite by accident really because I didn't even know what Sociology was!! I studied modern society, patterns of social relationships, social interaction and culture of everyday life, and I actually loved it!
Following this I moved to London and worked as a Sole-Charge Nanny, where I looked after numerous children over the years, ranging in age from newborn to 11 years old. I supported families with the emotional and physical wellbeing of the children, social and educational development, and practicalities such as weaning, toilet training and sleep patterns. Oh, and I got to have fun at Chessington World of Adventures on numerous occasions, and introduced quite a few children to the delights of Abba over the years!!
I then went on to train as a Midwife, a name which derives from the Latin "with woman" and I certainly found my passion and niche in life. I have supported countless women through their pregnancies, during their childbirth, and postnatally with their babies, and I think I can safely say I have loved every minute of it. You meet new parents at the beginning of their journey in the antenatal period and you steer them in the right direction: educate them, advise them, listen to them, laugh with them and cry with them. Then you experience the complete privilege of supporting them in childbirth, and there is no better feeling! It was about this time in my life that I decided in order to give the best care and help in the postpartum period I needed to specialise my training in breastfeeding, and so I trained as an International Board -Certified Lactation Consultant. Now I was able to provide the best evidence-based advice and support to mums and their families, and I felt satisfied that families in my care were getting the complete package to equip them to go home and flourish confidently.
However, in the past year, I have realised that there is so much more I can give. Start your journey with me by joining the 40-week Squad which will nuture you throughout the whole of your pregnancy with all you need to know. But the journey does not end with childbirth, it just develops and grows, but like a plant it needs nurturing, so I have included a whole range of postnatal packages also.
I am totally passionate about this opportunity to empower women either on a one-to-one basis, in a group, or online, whichever you prefer or is more convenient for you. I want to create a community which can grow and thrive, and we can love, share and enjoy together.
My vision and passion is to share all my training, qualifications and experience to create safe, fulfilled and loving experiences of pregnancy, childbirth, infant feeding and the baby's early years, to empower the parents and to deepen connection, love and confidence.
