I qualified with the IAIM as a Certified Infant massage Instructor in 2015 and work with the parish nursing team at west Leigh Baptist Church whose values go hand in hand with the I.A.I.M approach and my own personal core values to nurture the well being and wholeness of mind, body, spirit. I believe that as we take a holistic approach to family life we can form healthy loving bonds that will continue to thrive for years to come,where there will be a continuous cycle of healthy,strong relationships. This can start in small beautiful ways of nurturing touch where infant massage not only touches the body but reaches the very being of parent and baby. We can learn to understand our babies better and find a deeper connection as we learn to communicate with them in a positive way.I was awarded a place to train with the I.A.I.M and qualified in 2015. Having worked with children and families for the past 15 years within different childcare settings and also raising my own two daughters who have now reached young adulthood I recognise the different challenges that families face and the importance of bringing parents together to help prevent isolation which is now even more valuable since covid. It is wonderful to help parents discover the beauty and the many benefits that infant massage can bring and to also provide a place outside the busyness of life to have that precious one to one time together. Holding a Christian faith and values myself I recognise the importance of looking after the spiritual needs of our beings and I welcome families from all faiths, backgrounds, and walks of life to come and experience the beautiful ancient art of baby massage,this is where your journey begins....


My classes are held at West Leigh Baptist Church in Leigh or one to one or small groups held in the comfort of your home. All my classes are following Covid safety guidelines to protect you and your little ones.

I allow 2 hours per class each week over 5 weeks which includes the full wind and colic routine. This enables parents to meet the needs of their babies, feeding, changing and settling them without feeling rushed and to give time to relax with a cuppa and chat over different parenting topics as well as learning a new massage stoke each week. I provide a warm relaxing environment, offer refreshments, oil, mats, and handouts.

I like to offer parents and carers a more personal touch so that I can help support each individual's needs so I keep the classes to a maximum of 10. This is to allow time to get to know one another in a supportive and more personal way. Classes can be adapted to meet specific needs such as babies born prematurely, babies with additional needs, and babies in care through fostering and adoption. Each situation needing a very gentle approach and looking at ways to communicate with baby through nurturing touch and reading baby cues and setting the pace that's right for them

The classes are suitable for babies from birth upwards to 1 year old. Songs, rhymes, and stories are very much part of the sessions to help make the time spent with baby interactive, fun and to encourage engagement and communication. The classes are also baby-led so that parents can have space to meet their baby's needs.
