How my journey began ......

Hi my name is Kelly and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself and why I decided to create First steps.
Firstly I am a first time mum to my beautiful baby boy who was born in December 2018. Before becoming a mummy I had over 20 years in the childcare industry, starting my career as a Nursery Practitioner then working my way up to manging Day nursery settings.
I have achieved my BA in Early Childhood studies, my EYT (Early years teacher status) and also hold a current paediatric first aid certificate and up to date DBS.
Many people told me that being a mum would come natural to me as I work with children but boy were they wrong! Nothing can prepare you for your journey into motherhood as it is full of ups and downs but at the end of the day it is all worth it when you see your bundle of joy looking back up at you and smiling.
Being a parent is a unique experience to every person and you are the one who is in control of where your journey takes you. You have bought this beautiful and amazing tiny human into the world and you feel nothing but pure love and elation for them but sometimes it can bring its challenges and at times can be a lonely journey especially when you are signed off by your midwife and Health visitor who had previously always been there to provide you with advice, support and reassurance.
My aim for creating First steps, is to provide support and guidance to you on your parenting journey. I hope together we can instil confidence and empowerment within you in your new role as a parent and you will be able to share these experiences alongside other parents who are going through their own journey.
I look forward to being part of your journey!
