Home Visits: Baby & Me

In Your Own Home – Sessions for You & Your New Baby

One to One Sessions:  Lynn has gained an enormous amount of experience over the last 20+ years of working with new families and this has helped to develop her unique approach and expertise in the postnatal period. She offers home visits  to introduce massage and movement and more in the early months after birth, These sessions will be tailored for yours and baby’s particular needs, they can include postnatal support with elements of yoga and breath for your recovery. (including pelvic floor issues)

Supporting your baby’s developmental journey with your loving touch is powerful. Massage is not only a delightful way to bond through the language of touch It can also enhance your child’s development, ease sleep and digestive problems, and boost your skill and confidence as a new parent.

For you & your baby, as a couple, or with a group of friends; the techniques are designed for babies from newborn. With very young babies you will discover how to work with them clothed and how to gradually introduce them to massage, learning basic techniques that help you become much more confident in the way you handle your baby, now and into the future as your baby develops. 

This is an ideal opportunity to include your partner or anyone else who cares for your baby. Don’t let anyone miss out on the fun!

After your personalised session with Lynn you may wish to attend Lynn’s New Baby & Me Course

Cost of private sessions is based on a fee of £90 per hour whether on your own or as a couple. The time you need for your session will be assessed by Lynn on application.

I saw Adam, Paula  and babies on the weekend and heard all about their massage session with you and I wanted to let you know how delighted I am that it went so well and specifically your advice which was beneficial to little Luna. Definatly exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much Lynn. From a happy Grandma who gifted a session to her son, daughter-in-law and their twin daughters  

Lynn came to our home when our little girl Daisy was 3 weeks old – the perfect solution in the early weeks when getting out of the house is near impossible! She started by listening to my birth story and our experience looking after Daisy so far which really helped to tailor the session to our specific needs. Daisy had been suffering from tummy problems including wind and reflux, and Lynn demonstrated some simple massage techniques on her legs and tummy which Daisy responded really well to. Lynn was also able to show us a variety of different holds which instantly calmed Daisy down. Perhaps the most valuable part was Lynn’s general advice around relaxation and breathing during feeds and night time – her support and encouragement at this early stage was so valuable. She even showed me how to make a few small adjustments to our sling which benefited Daisy and helped to protect my back and neck muscles. Since Lynn’s visit, baby massage has become a daily route for myself and Daisy and it is wonderful to bond together and watch her enjoy the strokes. I would highly recommend a home visit by Lynn in the first few weeks. Since the session I have signed up to start the New Baby & Me course where I’m looking forward to learning more. Mary & Daisy

We found our session with Lynn extremely useful as we were able to practice with our own baby in our own home environment which is so helpful in the early weeks when you can’t quite face public transport yet and when you are still nesting.   Lynn was able to give advice on different  aspects of babycare, not just the massage and Matthew found going through a sequence of holds especially useful.  Lynn gently introduced the massage and it was insightful to see how to read your baby and go at their pace. Lynn also instructed me on using breathing and relaxation techniques to help post natal recovery and  make the most of any short bursts of time whilst baby is sleeping.   Lynn’s  experience shines through and her gentle and caring manner  gave us the reassurance to  build on our confidence and carry on following our instincts as a new family. All in all we would highly recommend this workshop, this would make a lovely present for parents of newborns and would most likely be more useful than most other newborn baby gifts! – Ratna & Matthew

We would highly recommend Lynn’s one-to-one baby massage lessons, which have enabled us to learn this invaluable skill with our newborn baby in the familiar surroundings of our home, without a disruptive journey at this early stage, allowing her to benefit from baby massage as soon as possible after a challenging birth. The one-to-one format allows the session to be tailored to the baby and family’s individual needs and gives scope for specific issues to be addressed in depth if necessary. Our daughter loved her massage and we really enjoyed learning this lovely skill that we can share with her as a family. Lynn’s clear, gentle instruction and wealth of knowledge about all aspects of baby care provided a much needed confidence boost for us as parents and a tool that we can now use daily to benefit our baby. – Amy & Andrew
