About Louise

Have you always wanted to work with prenatal and antenatal women?

I wanted to work with children teaching in primary education (like my mum did) and was on that path when I met a baby having Reflexology. In 2002 I had my first fertility IVF client and she asked me to be with her throughout the whole journey so I learnt alongside her.

 

What are the kinds of benefits mums and babies get from doing baby massage?

I focus on physical health. It’s fun, bonding, social and intellectual developmental benefits are a given. I want to give parents the skills to encourage their baby to roll sit stand and walk with perfect posture.

Mums need nurturing. Too many of us are dropped after we’ve had our babies and are not even aware of the support offered by private or NHS health services. I like to think of myself as a Hub for informed decision!

 

What age do you advise parents to massage their babies until?

Forever! There is a natural break when your baby starts to move into toddlerhood when the massage becomes more of a game than laying still, but they will have their favourite head or back or leg massage.
