How it all started
I am Gayle.
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.
My daughter Emily was very unsettled as a baby. I wanted to calm, soothe and bond with her but she was very colicky in the early weeks and 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 Emily needed as I tuned into my instincts and into her cues.
It sent me on an incredible journey that would completely change my life. I went from a city lawyer 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 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.
I am very happy to say I have taught hundreds of parents baby massage and have trained over a thousand students around the world to set up successful practices teaching and supporting parents and babies using a holistic, natural and intuitive approach to parenting and childhood.
I have worked with organisations such as Pampers, Nurofen for Children, Mother & Baby Magazine, Practical Parenting Magazine, Colief and New World Music, Huffington Post, Huggies Wipes to provide education on baby massage and I am the author of "Baby Massage-Expert know-how at your fingertips".
Some of my greatest achievements are;
Being a mum to my amazing children, Emily, Xavier and Caspar.
Growing Blossom & Berry to have over 1000 teachers across the world.
Writing two books on baby massage
Let's Make Magic Together
The best courses that I have ever done!
I loved them. Thank you Gayle for being such an inspiration and for training me so well.
I can't imagine there being better baby massage and yoga training out there. Gayle enriches the training with her amazing knowledge and expertise in baby massage and yoga and makes the training thoroughly of interest to the student and maintains a really comfortable and stimulating learning environment. The training materials are so well thought out and helpful and Gayle is so very supportive throughout your journey.

My 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 recieved 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."
