Our Baby London columnists Dr Chiara Hunt and Marina Fogle run the hugely successful Bump Class in South Kensington. Here’s why you should love it as much as we do…
1. Sister Act
The Bump Class is the brainchild of Marina and Chiara who, besides being the ideal balance of medical and practical expertise, are also sisters. Dr Chiara Hunt is a private GP in Sloane Square Surgery with years of experience in the labour wards of St. Mary’s, Paddington and Chelsea and Westminster. She has two kiddies of her own and is responsible for many young families in the capital. Marina Fogle is your go-to guru for the best practical parenting advice. The mum of two is the author of Bump Mail- a week-by-week indispensable guide to that crucial first year of motherhood.
2. Your Support Network
The Bump Class aims to be just that- a place where you can feel safe to ask questions and to share your experiences with other parents-to-be whilst feeling supported by an amazing team of experts.
