Experience

My fascination with babies started after the births of my own children in 1989 and 1992. I trained as a complementary therapist after the birth of my daughter, who was born at home. I was very lucky to work with midwives in a private birthing centre using my skills as a therapist to help women through their pregnancies, post-natally and during some very memorable births. Babies are amazing in their abilities right from birth. They have the ability to ‘walk’ when held upright with support. If placed on their mother’s abdomen they will creep up to the breast and root for the nipple.

After spending a few years working with pregnant women it was a natural progression to train in infant massage and share with them the joys of interacting with their babies. With a baby massage course only being 4 weeks long mums were reluctant to leave so I did some research on extending the courses to make them longer.

Coming across the Baby Sensory website I was intrigued to find they were looking for a franchisee in the Southampton area. Taking my husband Alan along to be the sensible one we investigated Dr Lin Day’s (Baby Sensory founder) classes in Romsey and were totally bowled over by the range of activities on offer. Each baby was so absorbed and I could see the value to both them and their parent. Listening to the words of ‘Say Hello to the Sun’ brought tears to my eyes as these little babies experienced all these new things in their world outside the womb. So, as they say, the rest is history. I bought the franchise in 2007.

Being able to share with parents the developmental milestones their babies reach is fantastic. It is very sad when babies reach the end of their time with us, but I have had such fun watching their personalities grow and knowing I have had a part in developing their skills and learning is very satisfying. It's definitely the best job in the world.

Qualifications

Helen Dicks is the owner of Baby Sensory Southampton and is qualified to teach infant massage. She trained under Dr Lin Day, the founder of Baby Sensory in 2007.

They are regularly assessed and mentored by experienced Mentors both in house and from other regions. 

Description

Prices

Three week trial sessions are available which are a great way of experiencing more than one session. They allow your baby to settle into the routine of the class and you both to experience more of the activities and resources on offer. A three week trial is £21.00. If you wish to retain your place in the class for the remainder of the term all you need to do is re-book your place within 24 hours after your final session. 

An average term is 10 weeks and the class fee £70.00. You can pay in two equal instalments if you book early. The second payment is due before the start of the term.  

Individual trial sessions are available when classes are full. There is only one place available in these situations so regretfully we are unable to accommodate anyone else when this has been booked. A one off trial session is £7

Supervision and withdrawal of service

All children must be supervised at all times and not left unattended. The Class Leader cannot be responsible for a child at any time. Regrettably as our classes are designed for babies from the age of birth to 13 months only, older siblings cannot attend unless specifically invited.

Should a carer or associated visitor behave in a way that the Class Leader feels is unreasonable then the company reserves the rights to withdraw the provision of classes to the client.

No later than two weeks before your term runs out your class leader will ask you whether you wish to renew for another term. The Class Leader will inform you of the mechanism to rebook your space and payment terms. Note however that places remain on a first come first served basis.
