ABOUT THE PRESENTER BRIDGET SUPPLE
Bridget Supple has been teaching parents about birth, brain development and, more recently, the microbiome for 15 years at Birmingham Women’s Hospital and for the charities NCT and TAMBA (Twins and Multiple Birth Association) where, for the last few years, she has been the highest evaluated teacher. As well as teaching parents she runs workshops for Health Professionals, Birth Workers and Children’s Centre Staff on optimising the start for babies as well as regular conference talks across the country.
Bridget has taught in Children’s Centre’s as part of an Outreach program targeting groups less likely to attend standard classes and developed and delivered a course for BME women in Telford in 2012. More recently she has been running sessions for Children’s Centre staff on the microbiome and baby brain development
In 2012 Bridget also designed and ran a Talk to your Baby project within an antenatal class and delivered this as part of the Women’s hospital classes. This was hugely successful and has now been rolled out to all the hospital Parent Education teachers. As a result of her work at the Women’s Bridget was invited to speak at the National Literacy Trust conference and as a result of this, in addition to teaching parents, she runs workshops for Health Professionals, Birth Workers and Children’s Centre Staff on optimising the start for babies as well as giving regular conference talks across the country.
Bridget also runs the Facebook page “Seeding Baby’s Microbiome” a source for health professionals and parents alike to keep up to date with the latest science and understanding of giving baby the best microbial start.
