A great bonding activity and you have helped me realise that I can slow down and switch off.
Thank you for everything, we have loved coming to your classes and I now really enjoy daily massage time with Nancy. It is a great bonding activity and she loves it too, especially a foot massage! ️ The tummy massages you have taught us have also really helped her sore tummy and when she suffers with wind, which we struggle with much less since starting your class. When Nancy was born I struggled with not being able to ‘get things done’ (no one can prepare you for the drastic change to life as you knew it) but you helped me realise that it’s ok to have struggles and not to get the jobs done because this is such a special time and becoming a Mum is such a massive thing on our bodies, physically and mentally. I slowed down and appreciated switching off to have time just the 2 of us. I think it’s great how you are keeping everyone together and connected in this worrying time. It’s lovely to have a friendly and understanding point of contact in you.Charlotte
I have built some amazing friendships as a result of your classes
Thank you so much for a lovely baby massage course. I enjoyed it this time round just as much as with Carys. It made me feel a bit emotional when it finished! I have built some amazing friendships as a result of your classes and I'm so thankful for that. I also appreciate your email letters you send and your honesty and encouragement.Suzanne
Coming to your baby massage class made me feel supported and included. The massage techniques we learned were in fact only a small part of the experience. I met a network of mums and babies all going through the same chaos and confusion and loved the social aspect to the class. After a class where it felt all we'd done was feed, it was heaven to be able to have a reviving cup or tea and a slice of delicious cake and to share experiences with others in the group. When getting out of the house in itself was often a challenge, the classes provided a little safe haven where no amount of crying screaming, wriggling or feeding issues was too much.Rebecca
You help us through pregnancy and motherhood.
Hi Mandy. I just got your card. Thank you so much. I read the printed side first and it brought a tear to my eye. Such a wonderful reminder of your special classes. Then I read your personal note - that really made me cry. Thank you. You are such a wonderful person and really help so many mommies through pregnancy and motherhood. Thank you so much for creating a special and calm place for frazzled moms. Take care and see you soon. XxxErica
Mandy’s class met all of my aims!
Mandy's mum and baby class is really enjoyable and friendly, with an emphasis on supporting mums and babies. I would recommend the class to any mum. It has been a highlight of my week.
Initially I wanted to learn some baby massage techniques, have some one to one time with my baby doing something fun and enjoyable for both of us, to meet other mums. Mandy’s class met all 3 aims!
It's been lovely .......
It’s been lovely to share the first few months of Neve’s life with you, and I really enjoyed the classes and valued your support. It’s been a fantastic safe space for us to relax and be with other mums and babies.
Thank you. Lots of love xxx
Your classes (and you!) have been an important part of my maternity leave and Annabelle and I have benefited a lot from attending.
I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for three very enjoyable terms (and the yoga we did first time around too).
Your classes (and you!) have been an important part of my maternity leave and Annabelle and I have benefited a lot from attending. Please keep me on any mailing lists if that's ok. The classes have been brilliant, but just as great has been the social aspect with the all important tea and cake afterwards, as well as your helpful advice on various baby issues. I'll be sure to recommend your classes.Rebecca
You've been with me on this amazing journey ....
Sadly, this was my last block. I'm so sad that it's all over. You've been with me on this amazing journey from bump to baby and beyond and I am really going to miss yoga, and not just the chat and cake. You helped me get through the birth and now get used to this crazy new body I have. It feels like the end of a chapter. If you ever decide to do an evening class I would be first in line, you have an amazing teaching style and I don't know what I will do without your teachings each week. Thank you so much Mandy.Lizzi
Very relaxed and Mandy has a great way of talking you through the processes as well as looking after the babies to give us some time to relax.
Fantastic classes. We completed mum and baby yoga and massage and loved it. Very relaxed and Mandy has a great way of talking you through the processes as well as looking after the babies to give us some time to relax. Massage has been really useful especially at bedtime for calming my little one down and yoga has helped me reconnect with my body and have some fun with my baby
It's lovely learning how to give my baby a soothing massage and do something very interactive with my baby
It's lovely learning how to give my baby a soothing massage and do something very interactive with my baby. I'd highly recommend this class and Mandy as an instructor. I attended Mandy's prenatal yoga class as well and the breathing techniques were very useful during my labour; Mandy is a fantastic instructor who clearly cares about her mummies (to be) and their babies.Nicky
I learnt a lot about massage techniques for a colicky bab
A great bonding experience and learnt a lot about massage techniques for a colicky baby. Mandy is always warm and welcoming and shares her own experiences which is really valuable.Rachel
Mandy was extremely friendly and made me feel at ease so quickly. Which was fantastic as I was nervous being the youngest mum in the room
Mandy was extremely friendly and made me feel at ease so quickly. Which was fantastic as I was nervous being the youngest mum in the room. It was good to introduce everybody and nice for Mandy to explain she understands babies have their own minds so if we wanted to we could feed or change nappies just simply watch.
And she really meant it.
Having tea and cake at the end of each session made you stay and engage with the mums. I loved how Mandy explained all the benefits of the different massages e.g. winds/sinuses Oh and one final thing I loved the goody bag! Couldn’t rate the class highly enough.
As the weeks have gone on my son has enjoyed it more and more
I started going to baby massage when my son was 8 weeks old and I chose Mandy’s class as I had previously attended her antenatal yoga which I found to be very welcoming and relaxing. I was pleased to find the same was true of the baby massage classes. During the class there is time for both Mum and baby to relax and enjoy the session. As the weeks have gone on my son has enjoyed it more and more. It is a very relaxed class and you don’t need to worry if you need to feed/change/hold your baby.Ella
The classes are enjoyable not only for my little girl but for me too
Mandy is brilliant in keeping the class calm and relaxed even when babies are crying. The classes are enjoyable not only for my little girl but for me too, its a chance to bond and really focus on her. I started this class as my baby was suffering with wind and I was advised to try a baby massage….the class was lovely and gave me lots of tips for baby’s wind and loads more! We do it now every day as part of our bed time routine! Mandy was lovely and the session was friendly and relaxed. Tea and a chat after was also lovely! I highly recommend this course and I am very glad I went alongSarah
A really lovely way to spend time with my baby
I have really enjoyed the classes. I have found it a really lovely way to spend time with my baby but also to have a great chat with other mums with babies of a similar age. Mandy is very friendly and makes the classes a real joy to attend.” (Sara)Sara
As a first time mum it’s always nice to hear suggestions and also see that you are doing ok too!
I have attended baby massage with my baby boy called Theodore, he was just over 2 months old at our first class. I was a little nervous when I arrived but Mandy our teacher instantly made us feel welcome. We have just completed our first block of 5 classes and I can honestly say I would thoroughly recommend it and we are already booked for our next 5 class’s after half term! The class has been brilliant for Theodore and I, I have seen his legs stretch out more after the classes and I have also used the tummy and face massage to help with sore gums and trapped wind! After the class we have tea and biscuits which is lovely to have a chat and share ideas around being a mum, as I am a first time mum it’s always nice to hear suggestions and also see that you are doing ok too!Hannah
I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and have just started my second block!
Mandy instantly made me feel welcome and explained how the course worked. Each of her sessions have been so calm and relaxed and the babies respond to this well. I was nervous that my little one wouldn't settle and would disturb the class. No need to panic. Mandy ensures that mums feel comfortable and reinforces that the course is baby led so no problems with feeding or comforting little ones during the session. I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and have just started my second block!Rachael
Mandy has been wonderful throughout
Mandy has been wonderful throughout. She has supported and advised me through the very difficult early stages of a little one. I recommend baby massage to anyone as it introduces you to more people and gives you real bonding with your baby.Sally
