Hi my name is Clare Marie
I am the founder of The Baby Care Academy. I have been in business 15 years and have a true passion for Mum and Baby Care.
I have taught Baby Massage as an Instructor for many years and performed massage therapy for even longer! So I truly understand every aspect of anatomy, the skin and many benefits of massage for both mum and baby.
I have taught 100"s of other woman to do the same as a teacher, but despite all this I am a real person, I Value, Freedom, Fun, Fulfillment and Love, I grew up on a family farm and spent every day surrounded by my family. I value true connection, to my core.
My greatest achievement in life is being a Mum! Becoming a Mum "made me" in life and business.
