Katherine Whitby, Founder of Baby Steps
Registered Paediatric Nurse, Health Visitor & Certified Infant Massage Instructor.

Following a childhood wish to be a Children’s Nurse my career started in 1995 as a Paediatric Nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital. This was followed by a role with Chelsea and Westminster Hospital’s Paediatric Accident and Emergency Department, and then at the Cromwell Hospital. In 2004 I moved into the Community as a Health Visitor and now work part time as a Liaison Health Visitor in the NHS at a London Hospital. In 2006 I qualified as an Infant Massage Instructor and I’m amazed at all the benefits Baby Massage can offer. I now have twenty years experience in answering parents’ questions about all aspects of childcare, and offering practical, reassuring advice and support. I am Mummy to Isabella and William…my best job of all!


Baby-Steps offer baby massage courses at home with the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM). Classes are suitable from birth, although your baby is likely to be more receptive at a few weeks old when more used to being touched, and the Massage you will learn can then be enjoyed throughout childhood, hopefully when they are older they will give you a massage back! Our classes are recommended until crawling starts.

Our Baby Massage course is over 3 weeks and takes place at home to offer flexibility and convenience. Classes are approximately one hour each week and can be arranged at a time to suit you. The course comes with a 'Goody Bag' including massage oil, a relaxation CD, candles and pampering treats for you and your baby, to enable you to enjoy the wonderful experience of Baby Massage long after the course has finished. Full details of all the strokes covered are given in a great booklet accompanying the course. The benefits of the 3 week course and also the cost can be shared with friends or family.

Alternatively a 1 to 1 class of approximately one hour to an hour and a half is available. This provides an option to those who may be unable to commit to a course or may choose to give this class as a gift to a loved one. The class covers all the strokes of the 3 week course but obviously with less time to practice. The 1 to 1 course includes the same booklet and Goody Bag.
