I’m a mum of 3 children aged 13, 12 and 2! I live in Worthing with my children and husband.
I am a qualified nursery nurse and beauty therapist, and as the only named supplier for the children and family centre’s of baby massage in West Sussex have been delivering baby massage for over 9 years. I trained with the International Association of Infant Massages (IAIM) and am registered as one of their Certified Infant Massage Instructors. I am fully up to date with all enhanced DBS security checks.
I have worked with many local Children and Family Centre’s delivering baby massage classes to a wide range of families from those who wish to learn about baby massage for pleasure and bonding, to those who have been referred to me by midwives, health visitors, family outreach workers and social services.
As well as being a fun and relaxing skill to acquire, baby massage can help enormously with a range of physical and emotional issues that may be experienced by young babies and/or their parents/carers.
From developing the parent–child bond in those who have had a difficult pregnancy, a traumatic birth or are suffering from post–natal depresssion, to helping ease common newborn conditions such as colic and constipation,
I have experienced massage changing an unsettled baby to a happy content one, with the added benefit of a much needed confidence boost for their parents.
I completely understand that whilst having a new baby is a special time, it can also be challenging, especially when things don’t go to plan or how you imagined them to be. The experience I have gained over the years as a therapist, baby massage instructor and mother of three has been invaluable to me in finding a job I love and seeing with my own eyes how baby massage can change and enhance a family and help them to relax, bond and really enjoy parenthood.
