Effie + Ros

Effie + RosLocal mum Kate set up Effie + Ros (named after her two awesome grannies) to provide support, love and community to our fabulous community of mothers in pregnancy, birth and mamahood. Kate runs weekly pregnancy relaxation classes and hypnobirthing classes, offers ‘Closing the Bones’ postnatal massage, and a bucket-load of love and support. She believes we are not meant to do this motherhood thing alone!

As a mum of three herself, Kate offers a straight talking, practical, realistic and honest approach to antenatal birth preparation. She is part of the Calm Birth School family, offering a totally modern and sensible approach to antenatal preparation and hypnobirthing (which is not all the same).

Join the Effie + Ros Birth & Mamahood Tribe! She has a lovely community group to offer guidance, support and love to all local mums and mums-to-be. They have fortnightly Mama Meet Ups, evenings out and loads of support – it really does take a village!

Mums-to-be can join Kate’s Pregnancy Relaxation classes, which run on Tuesdays from 7.30-8.45pm at the beautiful Wonderlust on Stanley Road, Teddington. An hour to drink tea, eat delicious treats (designed for pregnancy), meet some other lovely local mamas, chat about a birth topic AND enjoy a different relaxation technique each week.

Alternatively, go along to Kate’s group hypnobirthing classes if you are keen to meet other local parents-to-be and learn in a friendly and fun environment. The vibe is high and Kate wants you to have fun and learn how to feel confident and amazing about birth. If private classes are better suited to you, she loves running these at her home or at yours. All hypnobirthing clients get a really fabulous goody bag (think pampering and looking after MAMA). For Kate this is part of the process – your body is doing a great job of looking after your baby and you need to look after you.

Kate also offers ‘Closing the Bones’ – a beautiful nurturing and relaxing massage that supports a woman’s recovery after childbirth, celebrates her amazing abilities, and offers a moment of stillness to reflect on the rollercoaster of emotions of new motherhood.
