Gemma Marie Harding is the name, and I’m a mother, fiancee, early years practitioner and breastfeeding advocate.
I was born in ’93, down in the beautiful county of Cornwall, living in the lovely fishing village of Porthleven, before moving to nearby town Helston in 2005.
I have qualifications in Child Care and Education, Working in the Children and Young Peoples Workforce, as well as in Public Services.
With broad experience of working with children in a variety of settings, including Early Years, Primary Education as well as with teenagers as a member of the Army Cadet Force, my passion for supporting children and young people is what I call my true calling and is the career path I continue to follow, with hopes of one day owning and managing my own Early Years establishment.
Being a parent of two has come with its own varied experiences. I am hoping to train as a breastfeeding peer supporter later this year, to provide other mums with the support and knowledge I feel caused the short time span of my feeding journey with my son, and has aided me to continue my journey with Ivy-Joan, who is currently 16 months.
