Samantha Osideko - Mummas and Beans Canterbury, Herne Bay & Whitstable Owner/Teacher
Hello, I'm Samantha. I am a midwife and a mother to a beautiful little girl.
I have always regarded antenatal education as important, but I didn't realise quite how important it was until I embarked on the journey of pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood. As a qualified midwife, my knowledge helped me achieve a positive outcome - I felt in control and I knew what to expect, and this greatly improved my birthing experience, even though delivery went slightly off-piste.
Despite my qualification, my husband encouraged me to attend antenatal classes as he felt he needed them. I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the classes and, quickly realised I needed a friend network that understood what it felt like to be up at all hours, what recovery was like, feeding issues and successes - a network I still belong to, as we still support one another. This experience led me to Mummas - their strong ethos and belief in a judgement free and happy environment to support and educate parents felt totally right to me, I became excited at the prospect of becoming a part of the Mummas team straight away.
The decisions one makes as parents start from the very beginning, and it is a daunting time for most. I very much look forward to providing families with up-to-date information so they can make informed choices, meet other expectant parents and, enjoy this remarkable and unforgettable experience in a comfortable environment with support every step of the way
