Being pregnant with my first daughter is what inspired me to pursue a career in pregnancy massage. Becoming a mummy enabled me to fully understand how truly amazing our bodies can be, and the importance of nurturing our little ones from the earliest of ages. I’m a VTCT fully qualified Therapist specialising in Prenatal, Postnatal and Deep Tissue massage. The emotional and physiological benefits associated with pregnancy massage are endless, not just to the mother, but to the partner and baby as well. Light Touch is focused around how bodywork, especially massage, can support the wellbeing of parents and babies during this special and magical time.
Hello! I'm Pippa and I specialise in newborn baby photography.
My studio is based in the beautiful location of Ringwood, New Forest.
As a photographer I have a strong passion for creating beautiful and elegant images for parents and families to treasure forever. My photography style is simple, clean and modern.
I have been trained by one of the UK's leading and well known newborn baby photographers, who is also an advocate for newborn baby safety.
"I love clean, modern and stylish set ups. My unique style captures beautiful babies at the earliest stage of their lives."
Hi everyone! I’m Ginette, the founder of Lucina Fitness.
I am a pregnancy and postnatal exercise specialist who teaches strength and conditioning classes, along with personal training for mums and mummies to be. Once you are a mummy you are never too postnatal to come and exercise with me! I pride myself on being able to personalise even my group classes to ensure all of my ladies train safely for their stage of fitness and rehabilitation.
In October 2017 our purpose-built, state of the art Lucina Fitness Studio was completed which is warm, clean and the perfect place for you to train! I have a great crèche area so your babies can be happy in their own space while you train too. I really believe in ensuring my ladies feel at ease and I try to reduce the barriers for them to return to fitness and strength.
I have always loved exercise and have been an avid gym person since my teens. After my second pregnancy, I realised I needed guidance to continue training in the gym, but was unable to find a local specialist. This led me to retrain and start Lucina Fitness so all local mums could benefit from specialist knowledge to regain strength and confidence.
Antenatal education is as important as buying the latest limited edition Bugaboo pushchair because if birth isn’t quite what you were expecting then fear will set in which can lead to complications…
1:4 women are fearful of labour and birth but with comprehensive education we can reduce this fear!
Antenatal classes have, until now, always followed a similar pattern and content. However, new to the birth education scene are ‘The Naked Midwives’. Whilst they are midwives – they are not naked! The name refers to the fact that all the classes are in depth and comprehensive and cover all birth eventualities together with the joys and challenges that can present when becoming parents.
As practising midwives Alex and Samantha meet so many women who feel a sense of failure if their birth experience doesn’t mirror their ideal birth plan. The Naked Midwives believe that women only have choices if they are truly informed. Straight talking with no fluff or filter, we offer common sense advice inclusive of everything expectant parents need to know, delivered in unique, comfortable and friendly environments.
At the Practice at Ferndown we have an experienced team of osteopaths, acupuncturist and massage therapist.

I have been teaching Pilates for many years and realised after the birth of my daughter that there were no classes that offered me what I needed physically – there were some exercise classes but the exercises given were so wrong for the ladies like me in the class that had recently given birth, I knew I could not do them with the correct form and the other new mums around me with no Pilates knowledge were just following along and it was upsetting to see as they had put their bodies in the trust of the teacher who didn’t really know what they were doing. So I decide at that point that I would learn and train and become someone that could offer these ladies what they needed to ‘heal’ from pregnancy and Birth.
The Prepare and Repair offering is a pre and post natal exercise system using techniques from Pilates, physiotherapy and physical training using the most cutting edge scientific, results driven system – that really works! The way we use and work the body during the pre and post natal phase needs to be adapted to take into consideration the changes happening within the body (Mentally, Physically and emotionally) – think of it as a movement prescription rather than a ‘workout’ this does not mean however that it is easy! We work to release stuck muscles and then strengthen the body to support the birthing process and alleviate the stress and strains caused in the body by caring for your babies as they grow.
For further details please contact me Info@paisleypilates.co.uk or come and see me at my stand at the show!

I am a fully qualified baby massage and baby yoga instructor with a wealth of experience running private and group sessions.I became fascinated with baby massage after attending a course with my son and noticed how much it helped him. The course taught me a range of strokes to ease him through numerous ailments.It was with my second child that I attended my first baby yoga class and found it a great way to start gentle exercise. The stretches were beneficial for my aches and pains and I learned breathing techniques which I found great to use when winding down at the end of a day. Effie seemed to love the yoga moves which made her more body aware and confident.
I became fascinated with the history and benefits of baby massage and baby yoga and decided to change my career and train to become an instructor.
I have not looked back since and love what I do. Karen Mallen – Baby Massage and Baby Yoga Instructor

Kit 4 Kiddies is a Family managed business based in Sunny Poole that specialises in handmade nursing covers. The idea came about whilst I was pregnant and being the creative type I wanted to make myself something I would feel comfortable when feeding out in public. In all the shops all the covers seemed to double up as a scarf or were a little plain for my liking. I wanted something that was easy to put on and off, quick to see the baby feeding, covers myself and my baby and easy to put away – all the glam but none of the faff. The idea soon grew and developed and now the covers have many features to make them a great item for any mum to have. Each cover is unique to the next with the print and made with the hope that a mum feels comfy when feeding in public.
Are you worried your stress may affect your growing little one?
Reducing long periods of stress and adding in more periods of relaxation LOWERS your risk of long term health problems like high blood pressure and heart disease and INCREASES your chances of having a full term and normal birth weight baby.
We’ve all heard how important it is to remain stress free and relaxed during pregnancy but it’s easier said than done right?!
This is where I come in.
I’m passionate about providing my mums the space to truly unwind and allay any fears they have, so they stay relaxed, happy and confident throughout their pregnancies and beyond.
All my therapies are safe during pregnancy and are proven to reduce stress and anxiety along with enhancing feelings of happiness & calm, lowering of blood pressure, reduction of toxins, balancing of hormones & increasing general energy levels being just a few.
All HUGE benefits to yourself AND your precious little one.
And all you have to do is turn up.
Seeing the change in my mums as they progress through their pregnancies and the gorgeous smiley, CALM babies they go on to have is the best gift in the world (to me AND to them).

I set up sweet dreams sleep solutions after realising how many parents were finding it difficult to get their baby or child to go to sleep or stay asleep. Working in mental health I knew the impact that sleep deprivation could have on emotional wellbeing.

I decided that I wanted to use my skills and knowledge in sleep and wellbeing to help and trained as a baby and child sleep consultant. I work with children from birth to ten years of age. The types of approach I use are evidence based and gradual behavioural techniques designed to help your child adjust to the changes being made. I offer a range of packages from advice sessions to personalised support that can be viewed on my website

We run workshops and classes offering reassurance and supporting families through this emotional and transitional time, helping you to understand your baby and toddler, why they behave as they do …and how your parenting can optimise their development and future health.
In workshops we look at the transition from the womb to the outside world, why your baby might cry, practical tips to help with calming and caring for your baby, use of slings, feeding, weaning and normal infant sleep. Also for your toddler: understanding their behaviour, their brain development and looking at sleep and eating problems.
