I really enjoyed Rebecca's baby massage and yoga classes - they were a great start to the week! She's a welcoming and helpful teacher. Learning baby massage techniques and songs has been useful to soothe my active baby and the yoga for mums was a welcome opportunity to stretch and relax. It was also great to meet mums with similar age babies. I'd definitely recommend this class!

I loved Rebecca’s baby massage and yoga class! Rebecca is so welcoming, calming and knowledgeable and the studio at The Space is a perfect setting. The baby massage techniques I learnt have been really useful for calming a tired baby in the evenings and have been a lovely bonding experience for us both. Would highly recommend Rebecca’s class!

Me and my baby girl did the 6 weeks Baby massage and yoga course with Rebecca and I could not be happier. The course was very friendly, baby led and safe. Rebecca has a wonderful knowledge and softest voice, putting all of us mums at ease. Baby massage was fantastic and it is something we had introduced after every bathtime and our baby is the most pampered and relaxed. Definitely helped with our bedtime routine and now she sleeps all night through without waking up!
Yoga was great as it gently focuses on the areas were us mums may forget or overlook. Arms, neck wrists or pelvic floor.
If we are lucky to have next baby we will be signing up again.

What a lovely baby yoga & massage class! Rebecca is so welcoming and taught us some great message techniques for our babies. The studio is the perfect space to relax, and chat to the other mums at the end with a coffee and snack that Rebecca provides. A really enjoyable class that I’d definitely recommend.

Rebecca is an incredibly caring and supporting person. She’s very approachable and ensures everybody in her classes is engaged and feels comfortable. I was overwhelmed by the idea of giving birth, but thanks to Rebecca’s support I learned how to control my anxiety. Even in the first stages of labour I was able to message her and get the much needed advise that kept me calm and confident.
Thank you Becks!

I attended Rebecca's antenatal yoga class and it was the best thing I did for myself during pregnancy. I felt so relaxed afterwards and the class is packed full of information that made me feel confident about my birth. I learnt a lot of strategies to use not only in labour but every day life. Rebecca is so lovely and helpful. I have now booked to attend her baby massage class.

Rebecca puts you completely at ease, she's kind, caring and very knowledgeable. I didn't know exactly what to expect from First Embrace antenatal classes but it was exactly what I needed, I have learnt so much about my body for when I go into labour. After having a planned c-section almost 11 years ago, I wish I'd have equipped myself with the knowledge I have now.
I am ready to go into this birth much calmer, educated, with in-depth information of what could happen and my options, even if I do end up having another c-section I can apply the techniques I have learnt and I know I will be more in control and in a much better place mentally.
It was also lovely to meet other pregnant Mum's to be and have time out to completely relax and feel at one with my body during the gentle yoga.
I can't wait to come along to the baby group once she's here! Thank you so much Rebecca.

My 4 month old daughter and i have just finished a massage course with Rebecca. We both loved it! For me, it was nice to meet other people with babies and speak to Rebecca who has been through it all before. For my daughter, she got a wonderful massage that we now do at home too. Rebecca is a great teacher! Very calm and knowledgeable and runs the class at a lovely pace. I would recommend this class and Rebecca to anyone wanting to do baby massage.

Thankyou, First Embrace Birth and Baby 🥰
During labour with my first little boy, I found it hard to try to be in control and not panic. This time around I wanted to be more active in my choices and give myself the tools to help prepare and guide me through my second pregnancy and birth.
Rebecca’s guidance in the final weeks of pregnancy was essential in helping me achieve this. I found I was able to connect with my body and baby before birth.
Rebecca gave me the confidence to think about the kind of birth I wanted, and to take control of this during labour. Focussing on my breathing, and allowing me to go with my body. Staying calm and focused on having a relaxed birth.
The knowledge that my body knew what it was doing (taught at the classes)was always in the back of my mind as well as Rebecca's calming voice which stayed with me during labour. I couldn't recommend these classes enough, they provide everything you need for an empowered and positive birth.

We had an amazing experience. Rebecca really cares about making sure parents are well educated on all of their birth choices. The classes and workshops are a great combination of baby yoga, baby massage and active birth techniques. Even after the classes finished Rebecca always made time to answer any follow-up questions and seems fully invested in creating a calm and confident experience. If you live in or near Brighton & Hove and are looking for support and information around pregnancy then First Embrace Birth and Baby are the best!
