Business Related Questions
Which part of Yorkshire is your business based?
I am based in Leeds but cover surrounding areas. There are also lots of Daisies around the UK.
Tell us a little bit about your business - What makes your business a little different from others?
I make learning baby and child first aid fun and easy. I use my own experiences of having two wonderful but clumsy girls to help make what I talk about relatable and is real life. My classes are definitely not boring and what can be better than having the knowledge to save your little one’s life!
What’s your favourite ever product or service that you currently sell or have sold?
Definitely my parent first aid classes – I love meeting new parents and getting some baby cuddles! I love leaving someone’s house seeing that they have more confidence in themselves and what they are doing.
Why did you choose this business to run or establish?
I wanted to do something that would help parents and families and be able to work around being there for my own children.
How are you pivoting or adapting your business during this crazy Covid virus time?
I have moved our classes online because an accident won’t wait until you are first aid trained or COVID-19 goes away.
What is your one product or service you would recommend for either a pregnant woman, newborn mom, or for babies, toddlers, or young children?
Our Baby & Child First Aid class – it covers all the things that are most likely to happen such as choking and seizures, as well as how to deal with an emergency, CPR, meningitis and lots more.
Who or what inspires you?
My little ones inspire me everyday. They absolutely love life and always want to take on the next adventure without any fear or doubts.
What TV shows can make you binge on all day long?
I could watch Gavin and Stacey all day! Smithy has to say yes, right!!
In reality its normally Hey Duggee that is always on in our house. But who doesn’t love the big brown dog. He even has his first aid badge!
What is your favourite ‘me-time’ or ‘self-care’ activity?
I love reading (when I get 5minutes!) with a huge cup of Yorkshire Tea and a bar of chocolate.
What is one thing you love about living in Yorkshire?
Going to watch Rugby League
What is your advice to a new born mom?
Trust your gut instincts. You know your little one better than anyone else. If something is telling you something isn’t right, get it checked out. Ring 999 if its an emergency or 111 for advice.
What is your advice to a toddler’s mom?
Always supervise your children when eating. It only takes seconds for your child to start choking. What many people don’t realise is that severe choking is silent. They won’t cough or make a noise.
So there you go. I really hope you have enjoyed learning more about Nic and her fabulous business, if you'd like to find out more, here are her contact details:
