Gayle Berry- Baby Massage & Yoga Expert & Author

Hi, I am Gayle.

My official title is…..

International Lecturer & Expert on Baby Massage & Yoga

I am the founder of Blossom & Berry, BA, Dip. Law, PGCE, IAIM, Birthlight, Dip Hypno, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Life Coach ITEC Massage, Author, Pregnancy and Post Natal Yoga Teacher, Children’s Yoga Teacher, Doula & Sleep Consultant.

My most important title is the mother of three amazing children, Emily, Xavier and Caspar. I am also a co founder of the charity Love Support Unite focusing on mother and baby health. I am an ambassador for a number of mother and baby wellness brands and I am Channel Mums’ resident baby massage and yoga expert.

How it all started…

I founded Blossom & Berry in 2001 as a result of my experiences as a nervous new mother, feeling lost and unsure how to make my daughter happy as she was very colicky and unsettled.

I wanted to calm, soothe and bond with her but she was very fussy in the early weeks, cried a lot and I lost my confidence in understanding her needs and what I should be doing. I discovered baby massage and it transformed my life empowering me to embrace my role as a mother and respond to everything my daughter needed as I tuned into my instincts and her cues.

It sent me on an incredible journey that would completely change my life. I went from a city lawyer in London to a baby massage instructor and through my successful business practice I have been able to completely love my job, find my passion in life and spend time with my three children as they have grown up. This has been my greatest joy.

I created Blossom & Berry to be everything I wanted to have in my own mother and baby wellness training. My training is designed to give you everything you need to succeed. It gives you a complete teaching practice in a box. Our training is the most comprehensive teacher training and business package on the market with no restrictions on what you can do and no ongoing licence fees ever.

My Books-International Author On Baby Massage

I am the author of “Baby Massage: Expert advice at your fingertips” and “The Simple Guide To Baby Massage” which has sold copies across the world. I also wrote Blossom & Berry’s “Soothe, Settle & Sleep Program” which has helped parents across the world. I curated Blossom & Berry’s book, “Love Letters For New Mothers” which showcases the stories of mothers across the world and share this wisdom with new mothers.

Media Expert & Consultant On Baby Massage & Yoga

I consulted on New World Music’s Baby Massage soundtrack album as well as being involved in numerous other media projects with Nurofen for children, Huggies, Colief & Huffington Post. I have contributed to Mother & Baby Magazine and Parenting Magazine.

I am a proud ambassador for Tropika Mum & Baby Spa range.

I am currently the baby massage expert for Channel Mum, Mamabubabump, New Generation Parenting and Anida Maternity.

VIP Mentoring, Creative Collaboration & Making Business Easy

I have been in business for over 17 years. I am a business mentor and love to support others in their business journey using a creative and intuative approach. I believe community, relationships and love should inform business strategy as much as profits and metrics.

I share this knowledge with my “Make it Easy VIP Creative Collaboration Day” which you can find more details on here

Giving Back-Points of Light Award from 10 Downing Street

I was incredibly honoured to be awarded the “Points of Light” award from Theresa May, Prime Minister. I received the award for raising over £100,000 for ‘Love Support Unite’ to support programmes which include providing a sustainable feeding programme to over 400 children, empowering communities with education, providing adult literacy classes, medical outreach, family based food security and teacher training workshops. The award also recognises the work I have done with mothers in rural communities in Malawi with our training in health care, first aid, and infant massage classes. Nearly 450 women a year are supported by this work in Malawi 

In a personal letter, Prime Minister Theresa May said:

Your ambitious work supporting ‘Love Support Unite’ and establishing ‘The Little Blossoms Project’ is providing health and education to vulnerable mothers and babies and having a transformational effect on the lives of families across Malawi.

The nitty gritty…

I was not always a baby massage instructor…

I originally trained with the International Association of Infant Massage, Birthlight Yoga, Yoga Gro, Tatty Bumpkin, Red Tent Doulas. I am also a clinical hypnotherapist, doula, massage therapist, pre and post natal yoga teacher and teach children’s massage and yoga. I am an infant sleep consultant focusing with a gentle approach to sleep and settling babies.
