nurturing mums and babies during pregnancy, birth and beyond

Hello and welcome to the BabyBlossom website!


My name is Amelie, I am a mother of two and I founded BabyBlossom in 2013 after the birth of my first baby to share with other mums/parents the many joys and benefits of pregnancy yoga, baby massage and baby yoga that I experienced with my own children.


From very early on, I have always felt and believed in the fundamental, nurturing importance of touch from the day we are born, in promoting health of body and mind,  and connecting with ourselves and others.

This led me to first train as a holistic massage therapist in 2006, and then as an Infant Massage Instructor with the International Association of Infant Massage UK shortly after my daughter's birth.


My yoga journey started with my first pregnancy, when I discovered a very similar sense of connection and well-being through gentle yoga practice, and made my pregnancy and birth preparation a joyful, treasured time.  


When my baby girl arrived, it was very naturally that I was drawn to baby yoga. Together with baby massage, baby yoga became such an enjoyable, treasured part of our daily routine, a time for loving touch, movement, play, interaction and relaxation, that I decided to train as baby yoga teacher with Birthlight in order to share these practices with other parents.


I also recently trained as a Birthlight Yoga for Maternity and birth (most commonly known as 'pregnancy yoga') practitioner, and am now delighted to be offering pregnancy yoga classes as a probational teacher. The Birthlight Yoga for Maternity training course is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives.


It is a genuine delight and privilege for me to share with other mums/parents how to connect, bond with and nurture their babies, as well as themselves during the precious time of pregnancy, birth and the early days and years of parenthood, and I look forward to hopefully meeting you soon.
