I became friends with Janet many years ago, when my daughter started going to the wonderful children’s “workshops” she created at her home in Notting Hill. Which we happily continued all the way through her prep school years!
Such was the wonderful, nurturing yet fun environment that Janet ran, we even arranged our holidays so that my daughter did not miss out on the weeks when they were running.  During this time I came to know other parents who did the same, which only shows what a special person she is.  The children simply loved being there. 
One of the aspects my daughter particularly enjoyed, was the very special Yoga element Janet included. So as Janet is a very experienced Yoga teacher we have continued this and she now has weekly lessons with a friend.  Both girls find these sessions invaluable, especially during their stressful GCSE studies.
Over the years, we have become close friends and although I did not know Janet when I was pregnant, I can really imagine that she would be a truly wonderful support, both emotionally and spiritually at such a difficult time.  She has an extremely caring manner, but at the same time Janet is a very wise lady and also very discreet.
I personally found my pregnancy both a lonely and quite anxious time and if I had known Janet then and had been aware that she provided such a “service” it would be have been a tremendous help. 
Living in London, we are bombarded with information such as wearing the most fashionable maternity clothes, eating the right food and having the latest baby accessories. But strangely very little is mentioned of such an important support, yet so many women seem to have felt as I did. I really commend Janet for setting this up and I am sure it will help to make many women’s pregnancies the extraordinary experience it should be!
