Cat, Baby To Pre-School Swim Teacher

Cat has swam competitively from the age of six, right through to her teens. She's always believed that every child should learn to swim. Since becoming a mum in 2017, she saw how much her son enjoyed his swimming lessons and how it made her feel watching him learn to swim while having fun, and wanted to help other mums to experience with their own little ones. Cat has since changed careers and retrained as a baby to pre-school swim teacher and is teaching for Merbabies in Livingston, Fauldhouse and Edinburgh.
