"My mission is to reach as many parents as possible to give them love, support and techniques to soothe and settle their babies using positive loving touch during a time when many feel overwhelmed, isolated and powerless. I want to create fun and engaging classes for babies, toddlers and children to enable them to connect, bond with their caregiver, learn mindfulness and breathing techniques to support their well being, mental health and development."
My name is Nikkita McCutcheon, Dip. Infant Massage and I am a qualified Baby / Infant Massage and Yoga Instructor, Toddler and Children's Yoga Instructor and Tree Babies Guide with over 10 years teaching experience based in Midsomer Norton, Somerset. I have three beautiful children, Kane (11) and Joscelin (14), Phoebe (2 yrs) and a very supportive husband, Damien. In February 2024 I opened the PATTA CAKE PARENT AND BABY WELLBEING HUB at Unit 4, Downside, Shepton Mallet. It has been a dream of mine since starting my business over 10 years ago to have a space of my own where I could support parents and their babies/children as they navigate parenthood and it finally came to life! The HUB is not only home to my classes throughout the week, but it will, I hope, offer a place for local people to hire for sling meets, infant feeding support, yoga etc. If you are a group looking for a regular space to hire during the late afternoons or evenings, please do get in touch - firstname.lastname@example.org
ORCHARD / SMALL WOODLAND NEEDED - CAN YOU HELP?
During lockdown 3, I decided to train to become a TREE BABIES GUIDE. This enables me to run classes for parents and babies of babywearing age to join me in a safe woodland space to support mental health. These classes are all about just BEING rather than DOING, a chance to connect with your baby through babywearing and nature and experience the many benefits. Classes are a mix of grounding, breathing and mindfulness techniques, forest bathing, journaling, nature creation (nature mandalas which we will create as a group to create a sense of community) herbal tea in the woods and a gratitude circle at the end.
