Bump2Bubba – lessons from a midwife

Bump2Bubba

Tania, a qualified and still practising NHS midwife of 8 years, created Bump2Bubba in January 2006 having seen first hand the effects of government decisions on the NHS and the impact it has had on antenatal education.  Bump2Bubba aims to provide you with a personal and professional approach to antenatal & postnatal education from weekend residential courses to baby massage classes.  All classes have no more than 10 couples so booking early is advised.
