Hi, I’m Karen! I’m a mum to two daughters Clare and Courtney. I am a qualified nurse, both general and mental health as well as being a qualified health visitor.
I feel very fortunate to love my job and being able to support parents in the early days and months is a real privilege. I have seen at first hand how baby massage, reflexology & yoga can help a baby physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually not just for the short term but also for the long term.
The benefits to parents in learning these skills and techniques is very empowering, knowing that you are building a strong foundation for your child’s future health and wellbeing.
