A big HELLO from a very busy but super excited me!
There has been such a lot going on here at Broody to Baby and Beyond HQ.
We’ve had loads of new sign ups for our Launch Event, which is quickly creeping up on us! There are still spaces available though so anyone who is in the business of supporting or serving the Parents of Plymouth and wants to come along and join us on the 22nd April then please get in touch soon.
The Event at the Guildhall is set to be a fantastic day with the addition of Live Demonstration Sessions from Local Support Services including Toddlersense, Diddi Dance and Gym Bubbas! Each session has spaces for 10 children, is included in your Entry Ticket and will last approximately 20 minutes, the perfect chance to sample what is on offer. There’s even room for spectators if you don’t fancy joining in on the day. More details will be coming soon about how to book your little one in to join the fun but spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so keep your eyes peeled for updates!
The biggest news from me this week is that our BBB Directory is now Live!!!
This is the start of our constantly expanding database designed to easily connect Parents with Support and Services available locally so make sure you check it out. You can post Reviews, send us Feedback on all of our listings or tell us about a Local Service we don’t know about yet!!
To celebrate the Launch of the BBB Directory we’ve got a £25 Drake’s Den voucher up for grabs! To be in with a chance of winning it all you need to do is Like and Share the latest BBB Blog on Facebook. The lucky winner will be announced on Sunday 4th March. Good Luck!!!

Hello and Happy New Year from BBB!
I hope you enjoyed the festive season and 2018 has started as you mean for it to go on!
There has been a lot happening for us here too and I want to share some exciting updates with you all.
The Broody to Baby and Beyond Exclusive Launch Event has officially been booked!! The date for all of your diaries is Sunday 22nd April 2018 from 11am-3pm at the Plymouth Guildhall. We’ve already had some big name sign-ups including Water Babies and Toddlersense South Devon with more stands being added all the time.
The event will be a fantastic opportunity for local Parents to meet local businesses and experts in a no obligation setting to find out more about what is available for them and their families. Did I mention the Goody Bags and Exclusive Discounts that we have lined up for attendees too?! Check out the Flyer on our Events Page.
I’m so excited to reveal that we will also be hosting a Seminar with Christine Treharne, Sleep Consultant Extraordinaire, of Goodnight Baby. The ‘Miracle Worker’ herself will exclusively be sharing trade secrets for a great sleep for the whole family and you’re invited. So make sure you get there early on the day to reserve your seat for the Parenting Presentation of the year!
Just one last thing before I go. I’ve got a favor to ask all of you…
If you know of any local businesses that I may have missed who offer Support and Services to the Parents of Plymouth then please show them our website, tag them on Facebook or just point them in BBB’s direction! So that includes anyone from Newborn Photographers to Toddler Groups, Relationship Counselors to Doulas, Mummy Fit Instructors to Acupuncturists. We want to get as many support sectors involved as possible. This is an amazing opportunity for them to showcase what they do at our Launch Event and get their details listed on our website in the meantime.
That’s all for now but keep an eye on the BBB website for more big changes coming soon!
Thank you to everyone who has checked out the Website, Read the first Blog, and Liked and Shared the Facebook page. I can already feel BBB gaining momentum, how exciting!
I wanted to give you all a better idea of how exactly Broody to Baby and Beyond is going to work moving forward.
In a nutshell… Broody to Baby and Beyond is going to be connecting Parents with all of the Support and Services they can get their hands on!
Our website, which is currently still in its infancy and under construction, will be constantly updated to include contact details and links to local Support Services in Plymouth and the surrounding area. You could call it a ‘Yellow Pages for Parents’ because soon enough you will be able to filter all of the listed Support by category making it easier for you to connect with whoever you need at any given time.
In addition to this online Portal Broody to Baby and Beyond are going to create events that bring you face to face with an array of Services that are on offer locally. This will give you the chance to meet in person and ask all the questions you may have before making any decisions. How awesome will that be?!
So it may seem like we’ve gone a bit quiet but I can assure you that there is an awful lot going on behind the scenes at the moment!!
Sign up to our Newsletter to be the first to hear about our exclusive Launch Event coming to a venue near you very soon.
Much Love, The BBB Team xXx
Hello, my name’s Laura and I am the creator of Broody to Baby and Beyond. Welcome to my very first Blog!
Firstly a little bit about me… I’m happily married apart from when my Husband breathes!! I’m a Mum to two gorgeous little girls aged 1 and 2 (I know, what was I thinking?!) and I work part time in a supermarket.
My road to parenthood wasn’t too bumpy but it wasn’t particularly smooth either. I experienced three miscarriages along the way, which hit me super hard. I’m a natural ‘fixer’ so I wanted answers and sought out all the support I could get along the way.
From the beginning I have been amazed by the variety of organisations I have needed to connect with as a Parent-To-Be and, of course, since becoming a Parent.
My personal journey, to name but a few, has included…
An Acupuncturist, an Endocrinologist, Private Sonographers, Counselors and a Sleep Consultant. I’ve completed Mini First Aid courses and composed my very first Will. I’ve attended Swimming, Gymnastic and Ballet lessons, Library sessions, Baby Sensory and Toddler classes.
I’m well aware that this list will grow indefinitely as my parenting journey continues and I welcome all of these services that help me along the way because without them I would be utterly lost!!!
What really annoys me is that I’ve found out about most of the above by word of mouth or randomly placed flyers. I’ve had to spend hours researching and reading patchy reviews in order to make my parenting decisions. Seriously, there has to be an easier way for Parents in the 21st Century! Parenthood is hard enough without relying on chance to connect you with the support and services that you need. So that’s why I’m putting everything I’ve got into Broody to Baby and Beyond.
Stay with me guys it’s going to be epic!
Much Love, Laura xxxxx
