Our ethos - Why LushTums
While pregnancy, birth, motherhood and parenting are all 'natural' experiences for many it can be anything from amazing to traumatising and everything in between. Unlike other trainings or approaches, we do not put any 'ideals' about pregnancy, birth or motherhood on any pedestals. Instead we will teach you how to be clear, realistic and open so you are able to fully support the individual women, children and their families and all of their choices, in all of your classes, at all times. At the core of our ethos is the belief that 'everything has a place' - so we respect our students by giving them information on all possible options and outcomes, enabling and empowering them to make their own informed decisions along their way. We are delighted to say that we receive wonderful feedback daily from women all across the UK who love LushTums and what we offer.
