About Helen Helen has always had a passion for working with babies and children. She is a Chartered Physiotherapist who now has 38 years experience, working with mothers, babies and children. Helen trained at the Middlesex Hospital in Central London. She qualified in 1979 and then continued working there as a member of staff. She went to work briefly for the Westminster Hospital but longed to get some specialist paediatric training. In 1981, Helen started work at the world renowned Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, London. Here she did many post graduate courses and worked with some of the UK’s leading specialists. Several years later, Helen moved to take up the position of Senior Paediatric Physiotherapist and Clinical Paediatric tutor at the Belgrave Hospital for Children in London. Here Helen learnt her baby massage skills and shared them with student physios and nurses alike. She taught nurses in the Special care baby units how to massage premature babies. From then on, she has taught baby massage all over the world to parents and professionals alike, and has been invited to lecture on this subject to her peers. In 1984, she moved overseas to Singapore, where she worked in schools, set up her own private practice “Health Matters”, and ran a highly successful baby clinic. In addition, Helen taught baby massage, waterbabies classes, as well as ante and post natal exercise classes for Mums. She was also a regular contributor to several parenting magazines. During her time in Singapore, Helen gave birth to two baby boys and understands firsthand the life of an expat mother, often far away from their family. Helen grew up in Hong Kong as a child, has lived and worked in 5 different counties, and consequently she is able to offer support to new parents who find themselves outside their home country. After leaving Singapore, Helen worked in hospitals and opened her own private practice in Geneva, Switzerland. She was Consultant Physiotherapist to the International School of Geneva and after 13 years there, she is now bilingual in French and English. Her Spanish is improving slowly. During her time in Switzerland, Helen also trained as a Certified Reflexologist, something she now incorporates in her conventional Physiotherapy practice with Mums and babies. Helen has always valued the concept of continuing professional development and has participated in many specialist courses.She is also both Bobath (NDT) and Halliwick trained. Other specialist areas include a wide range of neurological, orthopaedic and respiratory conditions. With this wealth of experience, Helen is able to offer the parents and babies who consult her appropriate treatment, knowledge and advice. This can be online or in person. As part of Physiobaby, Helen holds baby clinics, and gives talks and seminars worldwide. These are typically to parents, schools, teachers, health professionals and Yoga teachers. Helen is a founder member of Nest4Mums, in Hong Kong and collaborates frequently with the other professionals that work there. Helen has done voluntary work all round the world, recently with migrant mothers, and is looking forward to continuing that in Peru. If you have a question about your baby’s development posture or growth, the earlier you have it checked out the easier it is to reassure and resolve. Helen will be happy to help you. She will be offering online consultations by Skype/Facetime wherever you are in the world.
