Thank you for the amazing teaching session on Developmental Baby Massage which I attended at the weekend.

I just wanted to say that the baby massage course exceeded my expectations and that is down to you.  Carry on with your wonderful work and keep inspiring people.

Thank you SO VERY much for great experience of baby massage, I was able to start my first session not long ago with mother who is suffering with PND. We are all taking small steps and are starting to enjoy the whole experience. Many thanks again for such a brilliant course. I’m excited to put it all to practice in my new BabyNatal massage classes.

The course was fantastic and I can’t wait to share my knowledge with mothers and help to make a difference in the world.
