Meet Fi…

Fi from Bumps and Births

Hi, my name is Fi. I am currently on maternity leave until September, look out for new class dates starting in September or get in touch to ask more. My business is based at The Sheffield Wellness Centre which I run with my husband.

Thank you for the lovely Daisy course that I attended which finished last month. I’ve really missed it as I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it really helpful. I went from being anxious about the birth to feeling much more positive and informed. The girls that have kept in touch from the group are all so lovely! I have recommended your classes to other pregnant friends. A big thank you again for your support and guidance!read more

I've just finished the 6 week course with Fi to help to prepare for birth, and can't recommend it enough! It was a lovely calming space, I loved having the opportunity to learn and develop my relaxation strategies as we went through the stages of labour and birth, and I really looked forward to going every week. Fi is really knowledgeable and has such an amazing attitude towards birth and beyond - her calmness really rubs off on you! Thanks for everything � xxread more

What a wonderful 6 weeks. I didn’t know what to expect or what I would get out of it but it has been a truly positive experience which I have really enjoyed, and will miss!. Fi’s very positive, calm and open approach to the class delivery, and to child birth more generally, is so reassuring and comforting. Whilst the classes have helped me visualise a very calm and manageable birth if things shouldn’t go ahead so smoothly I know that the techniques taught to us are already having a huge impact. Friends and family, particularly my husband, have often commented in recent weeks how relaxed I seem. This is not my usual demeanour!!! I can only put it down to the fabulous mindset Fi encouraged as I do feel very much in control and empowered, despite the usual last minute ‘anxieties’ about the whole unknown change that is about to happen! I now have some very simple yet powerful tools(both mental and physical) to call on once the time arrives , and in the lead up to that day!!!! I very much hope that I will be able to participate in future Daisy classes with my baby in the months to come.read more

I am so happy I found the Daisy Foundation and Fi! I’ve learned so much and the antenatal classes really helped me to feel relaxed and confident about labour and birth. We can’t wait to start Tinies next week! I feel like i’ve made some lifelong friends. Thank you so much Fi, you’re fabulous ❤️

Attending the Daisy classes on the run-up to my labour was the best thing I could have possibly done to prepare for the birth of my little boy. I attended two, six-week sets of classes as I enjoyed the first lot so much I repeated them. The classes make me feel calm and confident and very informed with my options and allowed me to really consider what kind of birth I wanted to have. Fi is fabulous and her passion for what she does really comes through which is why the classes are so enjoyable. She’s full of knowledge and teaches in a way that really makes you feel welcome and engaged. This is a ‘must do’ for any Mum to be!read more

I came here to do a parenting course, after finding their details online. I was over the moon to have found the sheffield wellness centre- Fi was absolutely fantastic and tailored my course to suit, and took the time to help me. She was very knowledgable and friendly and a great host. The centre was fantastic- i will be returning in the future for further classes.5 stars, tip-top!Many thanks, Fi!read more

What a lovely and informative day spent with Fi and other parents to be. I feel better prepared to support my partner in having the birth that we want. I highly recommend joining this course to get great advice and techniques and to better understand birthing. Thank you Fi.

I attended the birth and labour workshop (1 day) run by Fi with my partner. We went in with very little knowledge about anything and didn't really know what to expect. I was extremely pleased with the course content and the delivery, what seemed like a long day went by in a flash and we learnt an awful lot. I came out feeling confident about what lies ahead and we cant thank you enough for that! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone. Thank you!read more

The workshops led by Fi were amazing. I use the breathing techniques and movements leading up to my birth and in any situation where I can feel any stress creeping in! With it being my second child i thought id just go to relax.. however i didnt realise the huge gaps in my knowledge of how to birth and also how to think about the birth i want. Fi is constantly on hand with any questions and worries I have...I really don't know what I would do without that support to fall back on! I would say that this course is essential for any mum to be.Thankyou Fi!!!xxxxxread more

I did Tinies and Wrigglers with my new little boy and thoroughly looked forward to our Monday sessions! The studio and atmosphere are so calming, it felt very luxurious for a new mum. Class content was mixed, Archie loved What's in the Box during Wrigglers, and Fi's advice, the sense of community and support, and the friends I have made from attending are priceless.read more

Fi is absolutely wonderful and not only showed me some very helpful breathing techniques and birthing positions, but more importantly, helped to give me the confidence I needed to have a calm and relaxed birth that was a wonderful experience. I can't recommend these classes highly enough. Thank you so much Fi x

Fi and the Daisy Foundation have played such a massive part in my pregnancy and new motherhood journey - signing up for the Daisy Birthing classes is the one of the best decisions I could have made! The Birth preparation classes were a lovely hour of calm in an otherwise hectic week - in which to focus on myself, my pregnancy and my baby. Fi is a vibrant and engaging teacher and I learnt lots about the physiology of birth, breathing techniques and movements to help during labour, and the importance of a calm quiet birthing space - amongst other things. It also provided a friendly, non judgemental space to get to know other Mums, share the trials and tribulations of pregnancy and fears/ excitement about labour and birth. My husband and I took a Birth Partner Preparation course - which really helped to reassure him about labour and the role he needed to play. I think he was initially sceptical about the course but afterwards thanked me for booking it and said it was "fantastic"! Fi really helped to put all the fathers in the group at ease, no question was a silly one. After I had my baby, I graduated to the Tinies and then Wrigglers classes. These classes have been one of the highlights of mine and my son's week since he was 6 weeks old! An hour or so of singing, playing, massage, yoga, bonding. Relaxed baby led sessions. Cups of tea and chats, sympathy and sharing of knowledge with other Mums. Fi also organises Daisy Socials - which have been a real life line in the sometimes endless seeming hours of maternity leave!! Really can't recommend The Daisy Foundation Sheffield enough, for the relaxation, knowledge and ability to meet like minded parents 🙂read more

These classes gave me real confidence going in to labour to be prepared and ready for any birth experience. I felt relaxed and supported in the run up to my birth and have made great friends that I'm still in touch with. I ended up having a csection but the birth of my baby was still a positive experience I'm sure in part because of the skills I learnt with these classes. I felt able to keep calm, positive and in control. Fi is an inspiration and a truely lovely lady and i can really recommend her classes xxxread more

A big thank you to Fi for leading the Lazy Daisy classes which have been fantastic! I found it really useful to understand more about the birth process and felt prepared for the birth feeling calm and confident about it. We both found the couples workshop really helpful too! Thanks Fi, you are so supportive and encouraging!

Our impending arrival will be my third child (though my partners first) and my experience of the labour process to date had very much been that of a spare part who, despite wanting to help, had been reduced to holding the gas and air tube and saying “breathe!”. The NHS classes we had attended during this pregnancy hadn’t really done much to change my view that this time would be any different, so when my partner, who had been attending the weekly Bumps and Birth’s classes, suggested attending the partner workshop, I have to admit I was a little sceptical that I would learn anything new. I also envisioned being sat on a beanbag, humming and chanting a little. As it turned out, I couldn’t have been more wrong. The class was relaxed, funny and I didn’t have to sit on a bean bag or chant (though I’m sure you could if you wanted to). The time was well structured and provided lots of practical, science based information, ideas and examples of how to help your partner during labour, both in terms of physical help and support, and also how to help manage the labour process to ensure your partner gets what they want / need without them having to lose focus on the rather important job in hand. Fi explained things that well that they seemed rather obvious afterwards, but I’m pretty certain there is no way they would have occurred to me without any prompting during labour. I certainly feel more confident to be able to question what is happening / being done should I need to, and only wish that I’d have the benefit of this insight prior to the birth of my first two children, as I think it would, and I could, have made a massive difference to the way those labours went. I couldn’t recommend the course more highly to dad’s to be.read more

Fi's 6 week birthing course was amazing. I completed it twice. It helped me to keep calm during my pregnancy and also prepare for the birth of my baby. I now feel well informed and know exactly what I would like for the birth of my baby. Me and my husband also completed the couples birthing workshop, this was fantastic. My husband is so happy I found this course and is now excited to play an important roll in the baby's birth. We can't thank Fi enough and would 100% recommend the classes to anyone preparing for birth.read more

My partner and I attended Fi's course at around 34 weeks and it was fantastic. She was friendly and down to earth as well as being very well informed about a huge range of birth and baby related research and literature. We felt we could ask any questions at all and both feel much more confident about birth and parenthood. Thank you!

Fi is fantastic at running antenatal classes! I have met many of the mums she has helped and they can't recommend her enough. I am incredibly proud of my wife and that she has been able to help so many women to have safer, more enjoyable and more informed births. If you are looking for antenatal classes I would HIGHLY recommend Bumps and Births.
