Busylizzy was founded by a solicitor (Sarah) and a leisure professional (Julie) in September 2011 after an opportunity was spotted for good quality, fun and professionally run classes for mums, their bumps and little ones.
Some of the problems they wanted to solve for new and expectant mums were:
- Grubby hall floors being used for classes
- Sessions stopping during the school holidays (just when mums needed them the most!)
- Penalties for missed classes
Julie and Sarah set about creating a club where a unique combination of classes could take place in lovely, baby friendly venues with simple online booking all wrapped up in one easy monthly payment model, one membership - Everything a new mum needs!
Their goal was to improve every aspect of class provision that the traditional mum and baby class providers had on offer. Busylizzy was born!
