An introduction to Basking Babies in Benfleet & Rayleigh from Heather Potipher

Hi, I’m Heather and I am a qualified baby massage instructor. I’m thrilled to run the Rayleigh & Benfleet areas of Basking Babies.

Having worked the London life for nearly 15 years, I had my gorgeous cheeky little boy at the beginning of 2019…….& wow – what a life changer!

I was first introduced to baby massage by a fellow mummy friend, it was a class Lenny & I enjoyed at the early stages of getting to know each other and a skill we both still enjoy. I loved how the classes were so relaxed, gave us bonding time and taught us a good routine for home too. My knowledge of the benefits of baby massage has only enhanced since becoming an instructor and the ways it can help your baby through touch are truly amazing, whether that be to settle, relax, ease pain and many more! (All of which we go over in our sessions).

I found also the class had lovely benefits for me as a new mummy too, the first months can be tough and a little overwhelming….being able to go somewhere & relax and speak with other  mums, get made a drink and eat some cake was invaluable!

I’m incredibly passionate about Basking Babies and in creating a happy baby and happy grown-up and am 100% here to support and teach baby massage to others xx
