I loved baby massage! It was a great way to get quality time with baby #2 and she absolutely loved it. I used the techniques in the early days to help with colic. Claire is wonderful, knowledgable, welcoming, kind and friendly - I would recommend anything she does to anyone!

I did baby massage with my daughter until she was 8 months old. She loved it and I loved the bonding time with her.
... also known as the Mum and Baby Expert. I have over 25years experience of working with women and families as a mental health nurse and health visitor and through my own business For Baby and Me. My professional qualifications and longevity in the mum and baby arena elevates my credibility and sets me apart from others working in the postnatal business.
I am passionate about empowering women to feel positive through the early years as a mummy. Whether you use the free resources, attend classes or join one of my communities I am committed to supporting you to feel confident, happy and relaxed, not only with your baby but also with yourself and your postnatal recovery physically and mentally. Learning to trust your instincts and understand the uniqueness of your baby and that comparisons rarely lead to confidence.
Facilitating friendships and encouraging mutual support is a major driver for me and I am immensely proud when I see mums return again and again to my classes, stating that they feel more confident and that my knowledge, understanding and support has positively contributed to their motherhood experience.
Finally the overarching ethos of my business is;
Bond with baby, Be active, Build friendships

Looking forward to see you soon
