“Thank you Fiona for the wonderful experience shared by myself and my baby son Mitchell. We have sadly finished our 3 week course but have walked away with an experience that will last a lifetime.
I joined “Baby Love Infant Massage” as a way to bond with my first son and found that Mitch responded so well to the massage that it is now incorporated in his night time bed routine.
Fiona, you are very professional and approachable and your knowledge of massage is evident during the sessions. The pace of the course is set at the pace of the babies making them feel comfortable and relaxed.
I would recommend the “Baby Love Infant Massage” course to anyone as it is a wonderful opportunity to bond with your baby, learn valuable skills and meet other mothers. I will definitely re-do the course in the new year with Mitch. Thanks again for a wonderful experience”. Erin (November 2013)
“I thoroughly enjoyed Fiona’s Baby Love Infant Massage course. Fiona’s gentle flexibility to accommodate the rapid and constantly changing needs of young babies while teaching massage, and her interest in encouraging new mums to share their pregnancy, birth and parenting journeys openly and honestly lead to a warm and safe place to share this special experience with my precious daughter”. (Sarah Boyle – mum of the beautiful Ellie-Mae)

“A great way to meet new mums and bond with my baby in a calming environment. I enjoyed meeting new mums early on so you realise you’re not alone”
(Danielle Stojanoski, January & March 2014)
“The baby massage classes run by Fiona were really enjoyable for both bub and I, I’m so glad we did it. As a first-time mum I didn’t know quite what to expect and so was a little anxious before arriving at the first class, but the environment provided by Fiona was warm & welcoming. The room was comfortable and well set up and it was a real pleasure to meet & exchange experiences with other mums who had newborns of a similar age.
As for the massage itself, it’s a wonderful experience for parents to share with their newborn. It really helps baby relax and allows you to bond with them in a special way.
During the classes Fiona encouraged us to go at our own pace (ie. we stopped as often as we wanted to feed bub etc). Fiona also had some excellent resources which she happily loaned to us. I would thoroughly recommend Fiona’s baby massage classes to any parent of a newborn.”
