The Baby Chain: New Bishop's Stortford group champions fertility, pregnancy, birth and postnatal services




Mum's the word for a group of practitioners who have joined forces to help families in and around Bishop's Stortford.

Eleven women have set up a community called The Baby Chain and launched with a coffee morning raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

They include a physio, osteopath, reflexologist, acupuncturist, baby masseuse and even a sleep consultant.

Georgia Mathieu, a birth coach and hypnobirthing practitioner who runs Birth Easy with Georgia, said: "It's a group headed by women who care and specialise in fertility, pregnancy, birth and postnatal services.

"Our mission is to offer a positive, nurturing and holistic community that will support mothers on every step of their journey."

The Baby Chain has set up a Facebook group to support women and plans to host events throughout the year to bring mothers together.

At the coffee morning for Macmillan, new mums got a chance to talk to Emma Riedo about physical postnatal recovery and Chloe Burroughs on all things reflexology. They were also pampered with a hand massage from Jemma Golds, of Knead-a-Massage at Great Hadham Country Club. The event raised over £75.

Jemma said: "We've collaborated to bring a positive, holistic and nurturing community and have lots of exciting plans for the future."
