My daughter and I have just completed Clare's 5 week baby massage course and I can honestly say that we both got so much from it. Of course we learnt and excellent variety of massage techniques that my daughter loves but also some great tips on development, sleep, relaxtation and weaning. The support and advice from Clare has been so valuable espescially as a first time mum. This is all done in a relaxed, non-judegemental environment. I can't recommend it enough. July 2017
Clare's baby massage course was fantastic. In additition to the massage techniques Clare is also very knowledgeable about all things baby related and shares so really lovely and useful ideas. Thank you for a great experience.
Thank you for helping me to be the parent I wanted to be.
You will never know how much the five weeks has helped me bond with my baby and help us as a family.
