Proud Member of IAIM

I am a proud member of the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) it was founded by Vimala McClure in the 1980's after travelling and seeing many cultures using Infant Massage as a natural daily expression of love.

This course draws on Indian and Swedish strokes which have been developed and refined  over many years.

This is so much more than massage, its the connection and bonding created through the natural nurting touch.

The benefits:

Infant massage have a huge range of benefits for you and your baby. Through the nurturing touch and quality time spent in a loving and calm environment. Loving touch is essential for healthy development of all babies.

  • Helps Baby Sleep Better

  • Relaxation

  • Bonding

  • Improves Circulation

  • Helps Digestion

Listen to the parents

I take pride in delivering a calm and gentle approach when it comes to support and guidance for all new parents. Here are just a few words of kindness from the lovely Mums I have worked with.

Supportive and gentle
I have to say that I would not be breast feeding had I not had Fiona as a maternity nurse. From day one she was incredibly emotionally supportive to me as a new mother. With my son she was gentle, confident, and practical and it is obvious that she finds soothing babies instinctive and natural. The combination of skills looking after both mum and baby took the anxiety out of being a new motherhood for me.

Afraid to breast feed in public spaces
I am a very private, almost prudish, person so with regards to breast feeding, although I wanted to do it, I made it clear I would only do it in private and on my own. I found with Fiona’s guidance I was much more relaxed about it than I thought I ever would be and now I feed in public (behind a scarf). This is due to Fiona gently guiding me in the right direction.

Precious moments and quality time
We were able to share this precious moment and also have quality time together as a couple. My husband and I were abit apprehensive having someone live in with us especially at this delicate time, but Fiona slotted into our lives beautifully. Fiona also encouraged my husband and myself to go out by ourselves a few times during her stay – which was a real treat.
