The Nest, a dedicated resource for new and expectant parents, has opened the doors of its new home in the heart of Redhill. The permanent venue will offer a safe and welcoming space where The Nest team and selected practitioners will offer services to families at every stage of pregnancy, birth and beyond. Among the many services available will be pregnancy relaxation, hypnobirthing and birth prep courses, breastfeeding support, support for mothers who have had c-sections, reflexology, osteopathy, massage, sensory classes, and many more. In addition, The Nest also run popular ‘Huddles’ – luxurious Mum and Baby Spa retreats at a private Spa in Horsham, West Sussex. 

The Nest is celebrating its second year and is the brainchild of breastfeeding specialist and local mum, Alexis Ozmen. Alexis is a qualified and experienced hypnobirthing teacher, breastfeeding counsellor and birth doula having worked as both an NCT practitioner for six years and, more recently, as an infant feeding coordinator for the NHS before setting up The Nest in 2015.

She said: “Since launching the Nest in 2015 I’ve been privileged enough to support around 200 mums in the local area. The services we offer have expanded dramatically and the interest has been incredible. Sourcing individual spaces for both our paid-for and free-to-attend community sessions was proving a challenge and I felt it was time to find a more permanent home for us. In time I hope to establish our new home as a safe haven for both new and expectant mums and a hub for the parenting community in East Surrey and beyond.”

The space will launch on 6th June and will offer free and paid-for sessions.
