Post

Hey I’m Jodie and I thought I would do a blog post about who I am and what I like.

I live in Camberley with Karl my husband, he is a carpenter and we have a daughter called Willow, she was born in April 2019. We have 2 crazy cats and a nutty chihuahua. I did hypnobirthing during my labour with Willow and I had a positive and empowering birth. During my maternity leave I didn’t want to go back to my full time office job, so I decided to train to be a hypnobirthing instructor, I love supporting people and I’m hoping to train to do breastfeeding support and become a doula. I choose the The Little Birth Company because I heard lots of positive things about them and a few friends recommended them. Since I started with them, they have been so supportive and I really like their community.

 

Things about me:

 

  • I am passionate about anything birth and babies.
  • I really enjoy being a parent.
  • We went backpacking in 2011 for a year and now travelling is under our skin, we just love exploring and learning about new cultures.
  • I love the coast and Cornwall is such a special place for me.
  • We enjoy camping, the dream is to own a campervan.
  • I love photography, I’ve done a few courses but just do it as a hobby.
  • Upcycling – As Karl is a carpenter, I love coming up with ideas of things he can make.
  • Non chemical/vegan products, I make my own cleaning products and beauty products.
  • Anything that is environmentally friendly, my daughter is in cloth nappies, they are so pretty and easy to use.
  • I love a good festival, or baby rave, did you know Fabric nightclub in London do baby raves!
  • Music, Drum n Bass, Alternative, Rock, Indie, Electro, and so much more, I’m a bit obsessed with music, pre kid we use to go to a lot of gigs.
  • I’m a very social person, I love having BBQs, garden movie nights and parties, for my 30th we hired a bouncy castle, yes we’re that cool lol.
  • My mum died of lung cancer when my daughter was 6 months old, I helped care for my mum during her last weeks, it was really hard, but I’m so glad my mum got to meet Willow. I miss her so much.
  • I’m obsessed with peanut butter and jam toasties.
  • I studied fashion at college, I don’t use this in my job but I love making things for friends and family.
  • I volunteer for ageUK, I visit an elderly lady, we drink tea and talk about her adventures and her art.
  • I donated breastmilk to NICU at St Peters for 6 months, I found pumping hard work and I cried a few times when I spilt the milk.
  • I’m soooooo emotional, I cry at anything and it’s got worse since having a kid.
  • When Willow was a newborn I couldn’t live without a sling! Best thing invented ever!!!
  • I love drinking tea, I would very happily go to the pub and order a pot of tea, I’m a weirdo I know
  • I laugh when people hurt themselves, sorry not sorry!
  • I swear a lot, well not as much as my husband but still a lot.

 

Well that’s me and what I like, drop me a message if you would like to know more and I can’t wait to get to know you.
