Baby Massage at Nurturing Hands came into being in 2015 following my early retirement from a nursing career that spanned 36 years. I had just returned to Health Visiting following treatment for breast cancer and very quickly became disillusioned with the many changes that had occurred while I was away.
Originally planned as ‘just a career break’, I trained as a Certified Infant Massage Instructor with the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM). As a Health Visitor, I had seen first hand, the benefits parents and babies gained from learning this lovely skill. It has been handed down through generations of mothers across the cultures and the advantages have been extensively researched and documented over the years. As a mother of 2 grown up boys, memories of feeling isolated and depressed in the early days of motherhood still linger, I so wish Baby Massage had been accessible to me then.
In 2017, I created the Baby Bubble after adding Reflexology for Babies and Children; Birthlight Baby Yoga and KG Hypnobirthing ‘into the mix.’ Since then I have had the pleasure of training to be a Nurturing Birth Doula.
Please feel free to browse my website and see if there is something that catches your eye. Whatever you choose - you will be sure to have a very warm welcome.
