Leigh McCullan and Birthlight Rugby Mums

Opening Leigh McCullen’s posts on the Rugby Birthlight Mums facebook group has been a regular treat like a special postwoman’s delivery to my inbox. Invariably, there was a link to an article I missed, a birth story that was not always about a dream birth but showed the resilience offered by participation in Leigh’s pregnancy classes, a group photo with real smiles. The support network that Leigh created in Rugby over the last eight years has shown the power of community circles in so many ways, not least in an effective communication with midwives and doctors in the local maternity hospital. Land and water came together through collaboration with Jo Wilson, the founder of the Little Splashers swim school .

As Leigh has just announced that she is taking a break from her pregnancy and postnatal classes as she wishes to focus on personal matters, I would like to convey my admiration and thanks to her as an inspirational Birthlight teacher. Thank you, Leigh for ‘being of service’ in a yoga spirit to women and new families in your community for years and very best wishes for new directions in your life. As your network continues through the work of your close associates, together with the Warwickshire Pregnancy and Birth Network set up with the help of Birthlight tutor Belinda Staplehurst, it is a legacy and a model for other local networks in the UK and elsewhere.
