Your baby’s skin is already fully developed very early on in pregnancy, so he or she can already sense your touch. Touch can play an important part in communicating with your baby even from these early days. A gentle pregnancy massage can be a lovely daily ritual, not only giving you some ‘quiet’ time to talk to your baby but also helping keep stretch marks at bay.[Read more…] about The benefits of pregnancy massage for you and your baby

Most of us remember what we were doing or thinking and feeling at the very point that we found out we were pregnant. Was it expected, had we been trying for years to conceive, was it a complete surprise. We were overwhelmed with varying emotions, anxiety, excitement and generally getting to grips with the fact that our incredible female bodies are now busy growing a tiny human.
On Monday, 20th November, 2017, my colleague Vanessa Taylor, Head of Maternal Health and Wellbeing at MamaBabyBliss, and I were honoured to attend a debate at the House of Commons about improving the conditions of maternal mental health in the UK. The event was organised by Dr Raja Gangopadhay, an eminent consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist, who specialises in perinatal mental health.
It’s the start of the month, and we thought we should get a bit more personal. You see, MamaBabyBliss couldn’t spread their magic to you all without our wonderful teachers, all of whom undergo over a year of training (with ongoing CPD training) to bring our programme of classes to you.
So today, we want you to meet some of the faces behind our classes so you can delve a little into their world and why they love teaching you all so much.
Justina Perry, perinatal wellbeing expert and founder of MamaBabyBliss, has been privileged over the years to work with some amazing couples and families.
In the sessions I gave Shanna a pregnancy yoga and massage session and then a couples Birth Preparation Workshop.
It was so lovely to be in the presence of love both times.
Kirsty Deveney of Relaxologie has recently passed her MamaBabyBliss Pregnancy Massage work with distinction. Kirsty has been a beauty and massage therapist for many years and realised the need to specialise in treating pregnant clients as she continued to get busier in her practice.
I became aware that many of the traditional massage routines did not offer the support and benefits to my pregnant clients. I knew at a time when my clients were experiencing many changes both physically and emotionally, a massage treatment could offer great relief and relaxation for them and their baby.
MamaBabyBliss provided me with the platform to be able to offer a massage specifically designed for the pregnant body and all the complications and changes pregnancy brings.
Pregnancy is a special time and I love being able to perform pregnancy massage to help my clients relax.
We are delighted to award Kirsty with a Certificate of Excellence and she will receive a bottle of our award winning ‘Tummy Love Oil‘.
Here are Kirsty’s top local marketing tips:
- Leaflets – When offering specialist treatments (Like pregnancy massage), those local to you may not know the treatment exists, or that it is available, so drop round leaflets in your neighborhood. Remember – it takes more than one look at your leaflet for a client to take interest.
- Know your Market – It is no good placing marketing material in places where you’re unlikely to get a high footfall of expectant mothers. Try places such as; Doctor Surgeries, Women’s Clinics and Baby Shops.
