Linda is ‘Mummy’ to 2 children who arrived in the spring of 2010 & the summer of 2012.
Linda is the managing director of Baby Bliss. She is also a qualified Early Years Practitioner, Early Years Trainer/Assessor, Certified Infant Massage Instructor, ‘Birthlight’ trained, Baby & Toddler Yoga Instructor, ‘School of Babywearing’ & ‘Slingababy’, Babywearing Consultant & NCT Breastfeeding Peer Supporter. Linda also has qualifications in Transformative Meditation & Deep Relaxation Therapy & Children’s Reflexology & brings all of this vast professional knowledge together, in every session she delivers.
Linda decided, whilst on maternity leave late in 2010, to establish the business, when she found there was no provision in her local area for parents & carers who wished to learn baby massage.
Within the first few months of operation, it became apparent that there was a local need for more variety in gentle, nurturing services for new families. Since then Linda has worked to build a now thriving community of Baby Bliss families who live throughout East Dunbartonshire & beyond & who keep in touch via our private, Facebook group.
With more than 20 years experience of working with families in the early years, Linda is committed & passionate about providing friendly, accessible classes where parents can enjoy special one-to-one time with their baby. At every Baby Bliss class there is equal emphasis on the need for peer socialisation between our parents. Many lasting friendships have been formed during our classes & this is something which Linda is very proud of.
“Early Motherhood is a magical time, something which can only be enriched by the opportunity of sharing the experience with like-minded peers”.
Over the years Linda has worked continuously to broaden her knowledge & skills. We are proud of the variety of complimentary services we now offer & we hope that our families will enjoy their journey with our team, from pregnancy to primary school!
“Come along & join us! You’re guaranteed a warm welcome!” – Linda Barrack

Louise is one of our BeBirth Positive Birth Mentors, she lives in East Dunbartonshire with her husband and baby daughter.
Throughout her pregnancy Louise researched the physiological and emotional processes that accompany pregnancy and childbirth, to enable her to overcome the common apprehension couples face during pregnancy. She attended a variety of private & NHS classes and workshops but felt there were areas for improvement in both.
“I wanted a class to tell me the physical changes and processes ahead of me but which would also touch on the emotional and personal challenges facing my husband and I” – Louise
Following the birth of her own baby, Louise found that her keen interest in birth rights & maternity care was unfaltering. Her thirst for knowledge continued & she pursued further self study. She decided to join Baby Bliss as a BeBirth Positive Birth Mentor as she cares passionately about the birth outcomes of other women & their babies.
Jacqlyn is our North Lanarkshire based BeBirth Positive Birth Mentor. Having previously worked in Glasgow and London as a midwife, Jacqlyn chose to take a step back from midwifery following her pregnancy and the birth of her daughter in 2015.
During her pregnancy, Jacqlyn found the support and advice from various antenatal groups invaluable. She hopes to bring that same comfort, support and understanding to her own classes.
Jacqlyn joined the sling library as a peer supporter and later decided to join the Baby Bliss team and undertake training to become a Positive Birth Mentor. Jacqlyn will be bringing BeBirth classes and workshops to North Lanarkshire.
