And now she has made it through to the national voting stage in the Whats on 4 Awards in the ‘Best local activity for under 5s’ category.

Residents can vote for Much Loving Touch at www.whatson4littleones.co.uk/awards-voting.asp

Voting closes at 5pm on Friday, May 1.

Stacey, of Cramlington, said: “Baby massage and baby yoga are a great way to spend one to one time with little ones creating a further bond through nurturing touch. Toddler yoga is a great way for little ones to develop their physical skills, balance and co-ordination using themes, rhymes and imaginations and most of all are suited to all abilities.

“Everyone is welcome to join a course.”

“Winning this award would mean so much and show that the hard work that goes into planning each class is appreciated. It makes me so happy knowing so many families love my classes that I could possibly win this award.”

Nicola Watson, who attended a recent baby massage and yoga course, said: “As a new mum I found these classes a great way to bond with my baby and meet other mums in a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

“We went to both baby massage and yoga and they really did help my baby with sleep and movement.”

Much Loving Touch operates in venues across Northumberland and North Tyneside including Northburn Community Centre in Cramlington, Shiremoor Library and Howdon Library.

Stacey also runs several sessions from the comfort of her own home in East Cramlington.
