Experience

Helen qualified as a complementary therapist in 1995, specialising in the treatment of pregnancy and postnatal problems. She worked alongside midwives using her skills as a therapist and attended several very memorable births in hospital, midwife-led units and at home. 

After qualifying as an infant massage instructor in 1999 she developed her baby massage classes to include reflexology and yoga-based movements. Parents were always reluctant to leave the classes and as they were only four weeks in duration Helen started to investigate the possibility of introducing ‘movement and music’ too. 

Finding Baby Sensory was a bit of an ‘alleluia moment’ as it offered so much more to parents and their babies. After visiting a couple of classes she was hooked. Helen says, ‘Watching the babies so absorbed in the amazing range of activities was an emotional and quite humbling experience. I had been in the very privileged position of being present when some of ‘my’ babies had taken their first breath. I always felt there was something quite fascinating about them. All the wisdom in the world seems to emanate from a new-born’s eyes. Seeing how clever and attentive these babies in the classes were was quite amazing. I’d taken my husband Alan along for a more balanced and critical opinion, but he said he only had to look at my face to know I’d found what I’d been looking for.’ 

Helen started her Baby Sensory classes in June 2007. Although she no longer works as a therapist she loves being involved with babies throughout that important first year. ‘Being able to share with parents the developmental milestones their babies reach is fantastic. It is very sad when babies reach the end of their time with me, but I have had such fun watching their personalities grow and knowing I have had a part in developing their skills and learning is very satisfying.’ 

Helen has two adult children and has been married to Alan for over 30 years. They have all be involved in Baby Sensory in some way and have been a great support. She has had experience of working with young people as vice-chair of governors and examination invigilator. She has also run workshops teaching Aromatherapy and massage to adults. 

Janice McGranagan is our Baby Sensory Class Assistant in our Chandlers Ford classes. Jan has many years’ experience of working within the early year’s sector.
