Hi my name is Michaela,
I am the the owner of NatalChoices who provide Developmental Baby Massage from birth and until your baby is crawling. We are Certified and Accredited to teach baby massage, by the Federation of Prenatal Educators (FEDANT) and Independent Professional Therapists International (IPTI).

We are also providing classes within the Hull & East Riding area soon, Click here for more information about this.
I am a Registered Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). I have various experiences within my nursing profession, including working within paediatric areas.
I have a keen interest in the developmental aspect of baby massage, and what the immense power of touch through massage, has on the infant. My training with the International School of Developmental Baby Massage and Movement has enabled me to teach the primary preparation for sitting and standing using gravity assisted techniques for stronger structural foundations.
This is by focusing on the transitions from sitting positions to squatting, crawling, standing and eventually walking. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and talking with parents and being witness to parent-baby bonding through massage.
All our Instructor’s trained for Developmental Baby Massage are Certified and Accredited by the Federation of Prenatal Educators (FEDANT) and Independent Professional Therapists International (IPTI) to teach Developmental Baby Massage from birth.
We feel strongly about the parent-baby relationship and our newborn course allows parents to socialise in a course environment with other parents whilst learning thoroughly research techniques on how to effectively soothe your baby. These techniques also aid in setting the foundation for successful infant joint flexibility, muscular strength and coordination. All whilst improving your baby’s circulatory, respiratory rhythms, back strength and overall muscle tone.
