Buckfastleigh & Totnes Area Antenatal & Baby Classes
Eleanor Carr-Archer - Mummas and Beans Totnes, Owner / Teacher
“My name is Eleanor and I’m a mum to two wild and wonderful boys; Isaac and Ezra (2015 and 2017) and a registered midwife.
Becoming a mum has undoubtedly been the most amazing and life-changing journey I have ever made, but nothing truly prepared me for the roller coaster of experiences and emotions along the way. I am forever grateful that I went to antenatal and postnatal classes, as I met some truly wonderful friends during this time. These women understood the sleep deprived nights, the feeding challenges, the good days and the slightly more clueless days – I looked forward to the time I got to spend with other mums, bonding with my baby and taking strength, and knowledge from the experiences of others.
I feel incredibly privileged to witness the birth of many babies in my role as a midwife, but since becoming a mum myself, my absolute passion for providing honest, down to earth and practical information to new parents, and support in the postnatal period has led me to Mummas & Beans.
I am now thrilled to be a part of a team that helps to bring mums and babies together in fun, and relaxed sessions, that helps empower women to make choices right for them, creates realistic expectations and recognises that no two experiences are the same. I am so excited to be able to offer these classes in a warm, inclusive and welcoming environment, and offer support and strength at every step of the way during this remarkable and unique journey.”
