I guide and support you through those early months with your new baby, helping you to feel confident, and equipped with a wonderful toolbox of ways to calm, play and connect with your baby as well as some tips on helping you through trickier times.
Our classes aren’t just about baby and there is plenty of time for mums to chat and have some relaxation time.
Our Hatchlings classes teach you how to use baby massage and baby yoga to support your baby through some common ailments, including tummy troubles, teething and colds and congestion. We also look at how you can support your baby’s development and how baby massage can improve sleeping patterns.
As well as being a baby massage and Yoga instructor I am also a qualified Maternity Nurse, Gentle Sleep Consultant, Weaning Consultant and I hold a OCN qualification on Colic, reflux and allergies. I am also a mum of 2 lovely daughters and I am here to support you through this wonderful but sometimes daunting journey with your baby.
On joining a Hatchlings Course you will be invited to join a WhatsApp group with the other families in your group. A fantastic way to support each other and meet for much needed coffee and cake.
