Hi, Welcome to Baby Bear!
I am the owner and founder of Baby Bear
My baby massage and baby yoga training was with Hands on Babies and additional training with Blossom and Berry .The qualification is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives, Independent Therapist International and International Complementary Therapist Association.
I have a son, Teddy, aged 4 and I have first-hand experience of how to integrate baby massage and yoga into your routine. I have experienced the benefits massage and yoga can bring to you, your baby and your family.
My passion for massage , developmental play and yoga started from attending classes when Teddy was newborn and integrating the principles in to our daily routines. Which Teddy still loves now.
I have spent all my working life with children and families. As a primary school teacher and more recently a volunteer role in NCT . I am also a trained breastfeeding co-ordinator , supporting mums and babies in our local area.
Working as a teacher and for our local NCT branch, has given me the opportunity to train and expand my knowledge on the importance of bonding and attachment. I understand how vital this is, especially within the first years of a child’s life.
The training I did with Hands on Babies and Blossom and Berry, cemented this passion for positive, nurturing touch and how beneficial it can be. I feel privileged to be able to run such a beautiful course that offers so much to babies, parents and caregivers.
I am also the proud owner of Baby Bear's Den. A family and community space , nestled behind Streatham house nursery, Victoria Road west, Crosby.
I run all my classes there along side 15 other wonderful teachers, providing classes for babies, children, parents and families, with a focus on wellbeing and community.
I have a current Enhanced DBS and am trained regularly in safeguarding procedures. All of my qualifications Inc. my DBS check and public liability insurance are available on request.
I hope to welcome you to class soon xxx
Hi my name is Jennie, I am the other half of Baby Bear! .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been a Baby Bear teacher for 1 year now but a Baby Bear parent for 3! I'm a qualified primary school teacher and a very proud member of the baby bear team ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I teach on Mondays at the den and run our family stay and play sessions too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While studying baby massage I found the benefits that parents and baby gain from it just incredible. It is so lovely to see the love and bonding that happens in our classes, it is honestly the best feeling ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s a privilege to see the connections and bonding created in our classes and friendships made, when you can facilitate and really honest and encouraging chat, that you just know has made someone feel a bit better ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My daughter, Eva, is 3. I remember clearly what a comforting and caring place the Den always was for me when I was an emotional and exhausted new Mum. I strive to make my classes as welcoming and supportive ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Got a grumpy/tired/hungry baby in class? I've been there, it's never a problem! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can’t wait to welcome you to our classes xxx
