My name is Vanessa and I am a mummy to my beautiful little boy Orin and wife to my lovely husband, John. I’m also a qualified Blossom and Berry baby massage instructor, qualified Teaching Assistant, Beauty Therapist and have certificates in first aid and as well as an up to date DBS.
Before I specialised in baby massage, I worked as a qualified massage therapist. Although there are some obvious differences between adults and babies, the core intention of massage remains the same; to relax and support.
I'm passionate about supporting mother and baby in their emotional and physical wellbeing, our classes are designed to nurture both mum and baby.
I had both a challenging pregnancy and start to motherhood, however my experiences have inspired me to want to make a difference to other parents and help them have more of positive transition to parenthood. Everyone's experiences of those early motherhood days are different, MumLovesBaby wants to support all mum's through this time and what better way than teaching them the practical and yet powerful skill of baby massage.
I have created classes that are empowering, non-judgemental and supportive. You will learn tools and techniques to create a deep connection with your baby and to help baby to relax when in distress.
As a baby massage instructor, I teach parents how to use massage with their babies to improve the bond, alleviate colic, aid sleep and support physical development (to name but a few).
I love helping new parents to feel empowered with this beautiful skill and to hear about the positive impact it has had on their baby.
