Baby and Me helps parents-to-be

Children and babies are an integral part of both the home life and work life of Josie Hassan, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Clarendon-based midwife, registered nurse, lactation consultant and childbirth educator is also a mother of four. And, when Josie talks about children — either her own or those of the parents she supports through her business Baby and Me Education — her eyes light up with the excitement of someone who has truly found their calling.

Josie offers a range of classes to support pregnant women and their partners throughout the whole journey of becoming a parent.

Held at Woodcroft Community Centre, the evening classes include antenatal; labour and delivery; postnatal; and breastfeeding. Josie is also happy to tailor classes to the needs of small groups by commission, and is currently studying a microbial course to add gut health to the range of topics she can advise on.

Her business has been boosted with a $3,000 start-up grant through the City of Onkaparinga’s ON Business Partner Program small business grants initiative. The grant has allowed Josie to purchase learning aids for her classes as well as fund promotional materials and activities.
