Infant First Aid & Baby Massage Instructor
Sharon is a certified Baby Massage Instructor and Paediatric First Aid Instructor.
Having over 26 years experience in the London Ambulance Service and Private Medical services, I hope to share my advice and experience to parents and caregivers in emergency situations. I took early retirement to concentrate on my passion for babies and their development, combining baby massage with baby first aid. I am blessed with two beautiful granddaughter's and experienced the true 'wonders' of baby massage with my first, and this led me to train as a baby massage instructor with 'To Baby and Beyond'.
I am passionate about the health and wellbeing of babies, and believe in offering parents, grandparents and caregivers the confidence and reassurance with baby massage and dealing with baby and childhood illness, accidents and emergencies.
