I wanted to thank you, after only two sessions of New Baby and Me, I am seeing a real difference. When Aria awoke post feed at 1:30am last night I resisted my usual urge to head downstairs resigned for a couple of hours of pacing out of bed and, instead, used some of the techniques you’ve taught us to get her back to sleep in our room. After a cuddle and an exchange of smiles, I laid her in her cot and used long dry massage strokes, talking calmly and gradually dimmed the lights. She was asleep within 45mins. My husband even asked this morning whether she woke at all in the night!  – Hannah & Aria

I got so much out of the new baby & me course, it was great that the class was filled with both first time and second, third and fourth time mums! Having a busy 2 yr old at home, both my baby and I really relished 2 1/2hours to focus on each other in the calm and relaxing environment of the class. Even if my baby was crying or restless before the class as soon as we walked in he would relax and calm down. I will miss that time now the course has finished. But at least I have the massage techniques to practice at home. – Victoria & Maurice

Having done Lynn’s antenatal yoga class throughout my pregnancy, it felt like going home for the Baby and Me course. Taught with gentleness, kindness and a healthy dose of humour, the course was just what my daughter and I needed in those vital first months of getting to know each other. I’d highly recommend it for any new mum. – Shamita & Leela

This was the best thing I did once my baby was born. Each week, you showed us new and different ways to interact, calm, and comfort our babies. Amit loves his daily massage, and I know it makes the bond between us stronger. Thank you also for the discussions on a number of relative issues, I found them invaluable. I would tell every new mum to come to your class, it has been fantastic. – Bandini & Amit
