Mums, Mugs & Massage - What an amazing idea!

Written by Naomi Hits: 2516

Yesterday morning myself and 4 other HypnoBirthing mummies were lucky enough to try out the best ever coffee morning....

We didn't take much persuading to go round to Mel's very family friendly home in Angmering and find ourselves a little bit of "me" time.

Mel was so friendly and accommodating as she explained that throughout her 13 years experience in massaging she began to specialise in Pregnancy Massage and from that she began working with lots of new mums so felt inspired to teach tots about the joys of story massage.

My girls (2 & 4) loved being demonstrated on, as Mel showed the mummies how to bring a story massage to life with ever so creative rhymes and actions.  We baked a cake, made a pizza and got ready for bed all through the medium of massage.  A really heart warming activity which all the kids definitely enjoyed.... There were lots of giggles and hugs!

This set the morning up nicely as the kids were all relaxed and played happily with lots of lovely toys in Mel's adjoining dining room.  They were well amused with story sacks, dolls houses, bricks etc for the whole morning which accompanied by the delicious snacks Mel had on offer (Strawberries, Bread sticks and biscuits) made the event a big hit with the kids too.

It gave us mums a great opportunity to have a chat and a catch up.  We all took it in turns to hold each other babies who very kindly allowed their mummies to experience a blissful 20 min massage in Mel's adjoining therapy room.  It was the perfect set up as if any of the wee one's needed their mummy they could go through and watch all the action.  My 2 year old girl was insistent on observing what was happening during my totally amazing massage but soon got bored and wandered back through to join in the kids action in the other rooms.

I can't thank Mel enough for thinking up this really wonderful idea.  It really is the perfect way to spend a morning with mummy friends and absolutely exceptional value too at just £10 per person.  We'll all be back soon Mel.  Watch out.  Think you'll be needing a waiting list as demand for this event will be huge.  I totally 100% recommend it as relaxing morning out (even with a house full of kids!) for NCT groups, Pregnancy Yoga meet ups, And any other post natal pals!
