Hello, my name is Cheryl. I founded Cai Baby after the birth of our daughter in 2017.
I am a Certified Infant Massage Instructor with additional training in massage for babies born small or premature. I also run birthlight baby yoga courses.
I am a baby wearing peer supporter and a member of Attachment Parenting UK and of the Association for Infant Mental Health.
My background is in the charity sector. I have worked for national baby loss charities for over a decade providing bereavement support and improving bereavement care.
I am a postnatal doula based in Sussex. I am able to provide calm support for families with a newborn.
‘Infant massage allows parents to experience the delights of bonding and attachment during the most sensitive period of their baby's social and emotional development. I particularly admire the dedication of the IAIM for creating a practical setting for bonding and attachment to develop; and I'm incredibly proud to be the UK patron of an association whose work continues to set the gold standard in matters of infant touch communication and child development. ’
Sir Richard Bowlby
I trained in baby yoga with birthlight and in baby massage with the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM). IAIM is the largest and longest running infant massage association in the world - setting the gold standard in infant massage education and expertise.
My training is accredited by The Royal College of Midwives, Embody and the Complementary Therapists Association.
