I’m a Senior Perinatal Occupational Therapist and certified Infant Massage Instructor who specialises in working with parents and their babies. I’ve trained in mindfulness-based stress reduction, headed up teams of therapists and worked as a consultant in restructuring community services. I believe that touch is the most powerful mechanism for developing the bonds and attachment between babies and their parents. Having run many baby massage classes to groups and private individuals, I have seen first-hand the impact it has on parents’ confidence in getting to know and settle their babies. My classes are unique as they not only provide the opportunity to learn and practice the strokes, but they additionally help new parents to maintain their wellbeing as they adjust to their new lives.
