    Infant massage instructor | Personal Trainer

A maven is a trusted expert in a particular field.  A person who seeks to pass their knowledge and wisdom on to others. It means “one who understands”, based on an accumulation of knowledge. The majority of our mavens are mothers themselves, who have lived through the extraordinary moments along with the extraordinarily tough moments that unite us as mums. They understand the demands of motherhood and have been carefully chosen for their passion for women’s health and wellbeing.
