“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.”
