Hi I’m Frances and I own the cafe, work in the main cafe and teach Hypnobirthing, pregnancy relaxation, baby massage, baby yoga, first aid and mini medics.
I live in rural Wiltshire with my husband and our chickens.
We have grown up children, two daughters and a son, two son-in-laws, a daughter-in-law, three grandsons and a granddaughter. I look our grandchildren a few days a week and absolutely love our time together in the garden – even cleaning out the chickens becomes fun!
After working in a GP Surgery as a Practice Nurse for the last 15 years I have recently retired. Although still enjoy teaching First aid in the cafe after becoming an accredited trainer and assessor.
I also have an enhanced DBS check.
The most enjoyable part of my role has been helping people to understand how to manage their health and wellbeing by giving them the knowledge and confidence to do so and question the things they don’t understand.
I really enjoy being with people and love teaching Hypnobirthing, Baby Massage and Baby Yoga and first aid for both adults and Mini Medics.
