A passion for child development came about when my firstborn son had a speech delay. After searching for answers to support his communication and language I became engrossed in positive steps that can add to a child's development. I discovered concepts such as learning through play, heuristic play, and infant massage.

My professional life followed my personal interest as I began working with CAFADS (Children And Families Alcohol & Drug Service). This role enabled me to support families with children aged 5 and under affected by substance misuse. These families had varying experiences and mothers in recovery would often comment that they found it difficult to connect with their babies.

One method of support I would recommend to parents was baby massage as I had read about the benefits to the child, the parent, and society as a whole. I witnessed the benefits first hand, which led me to take a baby massage class when I had my next child.

With my passion for supporting families with children in the early years, I completed my degree in Early Years Education. I then acquired further training such as Safeguarding and Child Protection Level 3, Paediatric First Aid, Infant Nutrition and Baby Massage.

I qualified as a Certified Infant Massage Instructor in 2017 and have gone on to teach groups and individuals. Witnessing the effect Baby Massage has on both babies and parents has prompted me to reach more families as I believe in the ethos of Infant Massage. I have witnessed the benefits in both my personal and professional life.

My role as a Family Practitioner in Children's Centres as given me the knowledge to offer support on issues such as starting solids, play stimulation, oral health, parenting strategies, and child safety.


Baby Massage gives parents with babies of a similar age the opportunity to come together and learn a new skill that benefits their babies and themselves.
Classes are a great way to socialise and talk about the different aspects of parenting.
Each course has 5 sessions which last 1.5 hours.
Parents will be taught how to massage a new body part each week. There will also be a discussion topic and participants given the opportunity to share their experiences.

One to one classes are available for parents who wish to learn in private in the comfort of their home.

If you have a group of friends who all have babies of a similar age a group booking can be made.
