About Me
Hi, my name is Vickie and I'm a mum of four children ranging in age from 2 to 19 years.
I feel privileged to be a mum and having my youngest later on in life has helped put many things in life into perspective. I had been a primary school teacher for 16 years but after my most recent maternity leave, it made me realise how much I enjoyed being 'mum'. I really wanted to work supporting and getting to know other parents, working within the community to provide useful skills for parenting, at the same time as having more time with my own family. 

During my maternity leave, I looked forward to my weekly groups meeting other parents and wanted to be able to do as many different things with my youngest as possible. I wanted to make new friends, learn new skills and gain information that enabled me to make informed choices about my parenting style. I wanted to have range of different activities that I could share with Alfred as he continued to grow and develop.

This led me to a complete career change and I retrained with the Natal Family and ABC Life Support where I learnt new skills that I could share with other parents so they would be able to build strong bonds with their babies, empower them to make informed choices and build confidence as parents in a supportive environment. Being a licence holder as a first aid trainer with ABC Life Support has opened up the opportunity to work for this wonderful social enterprise, bringing affordable, accredited first aid courses to the work place and comprehensive paediatric first aid training for nurseries, schools, childminders and community groups.

I am very much looking forward to my new venture offering a wide range of antenatal, first aid and baby classes in the Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft areas and of course, I'm definitely looking forward to getting to know lots of babies, children and families.
