She attended Jane’s classes in her own pregnancy and has made the most amazing group of friends as a result, sharing their journeys highs and lows and knew she’d make a great asset to the Bumps and Babies team!

Jane - Founder of Poole Bumps & Babies
When working as a midwife, Jane found she had a passion for bringing an authentic element to antenatal education, birth preparation and helping people feel ready to care for their new baby. Before long, Poole Bumps & Babies was born!
Jane has been a Midwife from many years at a busy local maternity unit. Prior to Midwifery, Jane was a teacher, but found a real passion for working with women during their journey into motherhood when she became a trained pregnancy massage specialist. After the birth of her second daughter, she knew she had to become a Midwife.
With passion, humour and a down to earth take on life, Jane will leave you feeling fully equipped and empowered to take on your journey as a new parent.
