Natalie is an amazing course leader and is friendly and welcoming. I have thoroughly enjoyed the classes with my daughter. We have loved the yoga, nursery rhymes and we have made new friends and valued the class WhatsApp group. We can’t wait for the next session (our third rebooking) and would highly recommend.
I thoroughly recommend the Basking Babies classes and in particular, Emma Millward, who is an absolute gem! I have learnt so many skills and techniques to massage, sooth and relax my baby, all of which I have incorporated into a routine with her. Without the classes, I wouldn’t have the knowledge nor confidence to massage my baby as effectively.
Emma is very warm, caring and down to earth, so naturally us mums and babies gravitated towards her. She created a lovely and relaxing setting for us, where it was wonderful to meet other like-minded mums and share tips, worries and baby milestones! We also benefited from Emma’s vast parenting experiences and wisdom.
Initially, I was a hesitant to book the classes, but I am so glad I did, as it was invaluable in helping me and my baby to relax and bond with each other. Overall, my baby and I loved the Nurture Me classes and are keen to sign up to the next stage… Thanks Emma!

Emma is a credit to Basking Babies. She is friendly, approachable and very knowledgeable – not just about baby massage but she has a wealth of knowledge and experience that she is happy to share to help new mums learn. From this course, I have gained the skills to confidently offer my baby both massage and reflexology. The reflexology in particular has helped my baby with reflux and we follow the routine every evening without fail. I also found the classes to be a really welcoming environment where I enjoyed a rare hot cup of tea, had a chat and saw some friendly faces each week. I’ll miss these days but look forward to coming back for another course soon. I’m sure all Basking Babies instructors are good but I feel fortunate to have found Emma, she’s really fantastic and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
