Polly Chadwick set up The Bath Massage Company in 2010 offering specialist maternity services – from here Polly went onto launch Bath Baby Massage in 2013 and has been helping parents and babies feel happy, supported and relaxed through her professional and fun courses. 2021 saw a brand refresh and Bath Baby Massage is now Bump Birth Baby UK, putting all the maternity services and courses under one dedicated website..
An expert in her field, Polly offers support to mums -to-be from conception right through to the birth and beyond. Polly is trained in maternity massage, teaches Hypnobirthing classes and runs the Baby Massage course and Story Massage.
The Baby Massage we teach is the IAIM International Association of Infant Massage programme. Its founder, Vimala McClure, first brought it to the western world in the 1960s, and she created the first training programme for parents. It has become the original and longest-running training programme worldwide.
Mel Williamson joined the team in 2017 and works with Polly to deliver the Baby Massage and Baby Yoga courses. Like Polly, Mel trained in Baby Massage with the IAIM. She teaches Baby Yoga taught through Birthlight Baby Yoga Training.
Baby Yoga promotes positive parent-baby interactions which is key to the wellbeing of families and communities. Baby Yoga offers the physical activity that babies need but often lack in our 21st century global urban lifestyle, at home and in community groups, nurseries and care units.
Mel has an extensive background working in the maternity sector and specialises in maternity massage and Reflexology as part of the team at The Bath Massage Company.
Jo Greenwood has been part of the team for 6 years and specialises in Maternity massage as well as post pregnancy massage. Jo has a wonderfully calming nature and puts clients at ease as soon as they walk in. Her treatments are very popular and she is very passionate about making the pregnancy journey as easy and physically comfortable as possible.
