Beautiful New Beginnings was founded in 2016 by mum of three Carolyn Whitehead and became a Community Interest Company in 2018. The business idea was conceived around the same time as her third child Gracie, and out of a desire to support parents on their pregnancy and parenting journey.
As Beautiful New Beginnings flourished in the community, it also grew in team and we are blessed to have the most incredible team of experts working hard to deliver sessions.
Whatever class you step into, you can be sure that its led by a practicing expert in their field and that you will receive a warm welcome. We believe in creating and connecting communities and believe that in doing this, we can help combat loneliness. We are better together.

Here is what our lovely customers say about us on Facebook.
After birth I didn’t feel comfortable going far from the house on my own until she was about 3 months old. By then it was summer hols and there were no baby specific courses at the children’s centres. I had 6 weeks to fill before going back to work and was desperate to do something with her. I found the BNB courses on insta and we attended the Weds PM sessions at west derby. They were so fantastic! Included a bit of everything so I went back to work not feeling like I’d missed out on that time with her. I was also armed with songs, yoga exercises and ideas to incorporate in my weekend play with her. Wish I could attend more but luckily BNB have other events that I can attend that get me out the house with the little one. Fully recommend x

As a parent-to-be I am reading a lot of trying to get as much information I can. But the structure of the course and the professionals who deliver the session put things in perspective by also sharing their experience. I reccomend it to all new parents. Thank you Carolyn for all your help.

Tonight is our last session and we can't believe how fast the 6 weeks have gone. Each session has been brilliant and packed with so much information. As a first time mum to be and a complete suprise for us both....we started off completely clueless and leave feeling so much more confident about this amazing journey we are about to start together. Huge thanks to Carolyn and everyone who helped put the sessions together. We couldn't recommend you more.

We attended the Father Christmas needs a wee session with our twins today and they loved it. Despite them running wild from the get go, we felt comfortable in them being able to explore the activities. When they did slow down, they loved singing Christmas songs with Christine and making cards to take home. We’ll definitely be back again.
