We're all about the personal feel here at Bubbaview
Take a minute and find out about the history of Bubbaview and a little about the ladies who will take care of you.
We are an enthusiastic, professional and passionate team who's aim is to provide a relaxing experience where parents can take time to bond with their baby in our friendly environment away from the hospital. We provide non-diagnostic scans which are designed to give parents the opportunity to meet their baby. We use the latest technology to provide truly magical still and moving images, not possible during routine NHS antenatal care. The scans are elective and require no referral from a GP or midwife, allowing us to provide the reassurance and bonding with your baby at a time that suits you.
The Bubbaview story and introducing Claire.
For returning customers you will remember the original Bubbaview in Grinsted lane where the Bubbaview story started on the 27/6/17. Run by the lovely Jacqui, Kate and there family. They built the business up receiving 5 star reviews from customers on a daily basis. There out going friendly ways and the family environment put customers at ease and made it the place locally to get your scans done. Working from a studio in their garden they built a reputation any business would be proud of. Unfortunately the restrictions of opening hours mixed with work and family life meant they had to make a decision on the companies future and decided to move on to pastures new. So in early 2019 the business went up for sale and as you can guess the rest is history as we have now taken over the running of Bubbaview.
The transition period was hard work but fun as Claire looked to take the reins. The middle part of 2019 was an extremely busy time finding the shop, training and setting everything up to CQC standards. Both Jacqui and Kate where amazing working with Claire showing her the way the business runs as well as training so Claire can keep up the high standards already set by the previous regime.
With a lot of hard work the shop was ready to open on the 26/8/19.
Meet the Owner...
Hi I'm Claire after leaving school in 1998 I went on to further education and studied childhood studies. Once i qualified with my BTEC in Childhood Studies I moved on to working as a nanny, in a Boarding School as well as in day nurseries from being bank staff in a day nursery to pre-school room lead, baby room lead and deputy manager of a local Day Nursery. I then worked abroad for a few months running the under 5's Kids Club in a hotel in Turkey. After having my son, I was working in day nurseries again and within residential care homes for children with additional needs. I then moved on to work within maternity on a post natal ward in Brighton and a postnatal ward and the community in Worthing. I have worked within maternity for over 10 years within the local NHS hospitals. I then moved onto fostering parent and child placements. I've just finished my last foster placement in which I had both parent and baby in my care. I have looked after 6 parent and child placements, which i have enjoyed immensely.
I really enjoyed working within maternity and when the opportunity came up to buy Bubbaview, I jumped at the chance to take it on. I am looking forward to working with families in a non medical environment at a special time in their lives.
