The FIRST Pre/Postnatal Twitter Chat – Tues 12 Aug 2014 #ppnchat

How exciting is this? I’m working with Claire Mockridge (another fab pre/postnatal instructor) to bring you the first pre/postnatal twitter chat. A great chance for instructors to network, information share and learn from each other.
Twitter is a great place to meet others and pick up top tips. I’m regularly found taking part in twitter chats.
So… if, like me, you work with pregnant or postnatal women, pop this date/time in your diary:Beautiful pregnant woman.

Make sure you’re following me on Twitter here:


Save this hashtag now: #ppnchat

The  will be centred around the word ‘community’.

It can be pretty lonely out there if you’re one of the only Pre/Postnatal Experts in your area. This is where social media can be a Godsend. I often ask advice and seek out others who I can learn from in this way. Community is important so come and build it with us.

 Don’t worry if you’re a complete novice when it comes to Twitter.

Follow us, send a Tweet beforehand and we will hold your hand through the process.

This Twitter chat is for ANYONE who works with pregnant or postnatal women, eg Reflexologists, Fertility Experts, Massage Therapists, Baby Yoga Teachers, Physios, Chiropractors, Osteopaths – you name it!

We will be encouraging people to introduce themselves, answer a few community-themed questions to get the conversation flowing and hopefully enable you to connect with others around you in similar fields of study or locality.



  1. Every tweet you send must contain the hashtag #ppnchat (otherwise you’ll be just talking to yourself)
  2. There will be 5 questions on the #ppnchat which will be numbered Q1, Q2, Q3 and so on, as follows:
    • Q1 – What products/services do you provide for pre/postnatal women and which city/area are you based? #ppnchat
    • Q2 – How important is it for pre/postnatal women to be introduced to other mums-to-be and new mums nowadays? #ppnchat
    • Q3 – How do you help your pre/postnatal clients find other women just like them? #ppnchat
    • Q4 – Do you find it lonely sometimes working in this specialist field? How do you combat that? #ppnchat
