Welcome to Chilled Mama!
I'm delighted you've found me. I'm Cathy. I help parents and expectant parents to find and follow their own path through pregnancy, birth, postnatal period, in parenting toddlers & in life in general.
Have a look around the website.
You will find online courses and workshops, downloadable information, and useful links,
for a chilled bump, a chilled baby, or a chilled you!
Plus training for practitioners.
One to one support
If you want to have a 1-1 chat with me about any of your options, dilemmas, we can have a 1-1 session on Zoom, or in person.
Maybe you want help with your birth plan, or working out your options, or tips and tools to cope with labour, or a new baby.
Or you're looking back over the past birth, or want support to make a complaint or move on.
Or if you have a baby or toddler and want to talk through sleep, toileting, starting solids, or ...
First appointment is £67 (discounted if on low income). This includes follow up email with more information and relevant links, and ongoing support by email. Further sessions are £49.
Appointments available day times, evenings, and weekends. It can be with you, your partner, or both of you.
Drop me an email, or call, to arrange: firstname.lastname@example.org
I can give gift certificates for this service.
I am not taking any doula bookings at the moment (except friends, family, and past clients), just the 1-1 support above.
In the meantime follow my facebook page and join my Chilled Mama's Lounge facebook group and find a community of parents all trying to find our way and supporting each other.
I will be at two festivals over the summer with workshops in my sky blue bell tent and a labyrinth or two. I hope you will come and join me.
This is a wonderful relaxed, friendly, safe family festival with lots of activities for little ones, middle sized ones, and grown ups, including workshops on your wellbeing, and parenting ideas.
Many Chilled Mama followers/families will be there and the festival is kindly setting aside an area of the camping field for us to camp near each other. This is great because it means you will know people quickly, and there is someone to lend a hand to put the tent up or share their box of matches, or whatever. You are welcome to camp with us; on arrival just tell the stewards you with Chilled Mama. All welcome, especially anyone coming on their own with their kiddies. Join my Facebook group for pre-festival chat.
A number of Chilled Mama's are doing talks or workshops at the festival. You can see the programme below.
18 & 19 September
Campbell Park, Milton Keynes
My friend Sarah and her musician husband, and their event planner friends are organising this great day festival with an eco vibe. Great music, shows, stalls, talks. No camping.
I will be hosting talks and workshops on a range of parent topics, with some great people.
Here's a draft plan. Visit their website for more information.
I'm passing on all the courses and workshops I have designed for parents and parents-to-be over the last twenty years. Start a new career, or add to your services. Antenatal and postnatal workshops and classes. More are being added over the coming year.
It's all part of my pre-retirement plan.
I have launched a line of retreat boxes - all you need for a wellbeing retreat in your own home. NEW - letterbox gift for new mums.
If you would like more of a 1-1 boost for your life, I recommend my cousin Helen at HRH Life Coach. She specialises in working with mums, and taking coaching outdoors, to make the most of that precious time.
If you are a perfectionist and struggling with combining the benefits of that with the realities of parenting I recommend Michaela at The Thomas Connection. She can also help with relationships.

I live in Toddington, Bedfordshire & deliver workshops and courses in Luton, Dunstable, Bedford, Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard & areas in between.
