Our Team

Polly Chadwick set up The Bath Massage Company in 2010 offering specialist maternity services – from here Polly went onto launch BumpBirthBabyUK putting all the maternity services and courses under one dedicated website. Polly & team have been helping parents and babies feel happy, supported and relaxed through their professional and fun courses and treatments.

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 courses.

The Baby Massage taught 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.
