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. 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 my daughter 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.

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.”
