My name is Tracey and I am a certified baby & toddler sleep consultant and baby massage instructor.
My baby massage classes are suitable from birth to when your baby is crawling. From January I will be the baby massage instructor at Neal’s Yard Remedies, Salisbury. My classes run on a Wednesday morning from 10-11 and run for 5 weeks the next start date is 9th January, booking is essential. I also offer 1-1 private instruction in the comfort of your own home.
For my sleep consultancy I work with parents and their children up to 4 years old; offering bespoke sleep plans that are tailored to baby’s or toddler’s needs and am on hand for continued advice and support.
My background is nursing, specialising in oncology and community nursing so I have a wealth of experience of supporting people through difficult times in their lives. I wanted a more flexible career that would fit around my family but still wanted to help people which is why I retrained. My roles now enable me to not just pass on my expert advice but to be on hand to help and support parents at what can be the most amazing time of their life but also the most difficult.
I have three children, two of my children were terrible sleepers and I mean really awful! I look back now and can’t believe the lengths I would go to try and get my babies to sleep, how exhausted I was and the pressure I put myself under.
Baby massage has many benefits; it strengthens the bond between parent and baby, helps relieve colic and digestion discomfort while lowering stress levels and eases crying. I loved the one on one time it gave me with my babies, a parent’s touch is so powerful and baby massage gives the opportunity for all important skin on skin. My classes are relaxing and Mums, Dad’s, grandparents and carers can feel secure they are in a safe and welcoming environment.
