Welcome

Welcome

First Steps Consultancy offers a unique, supportive service, personalised for every family. I have helped many parents to overcome problems that were having a significant impact on their family, and well being. The parents who have used First Steps Consultancy feel that they have gained control of the situation and feel empowered as a parent, which ultimately gave them more self confidence, better quality of life, and happier children. They were then able to spend their time with their families focusing on making memories to cherish!

If you are not enjoying parenthood as much as you could be, why don’t you get in touch and see if I can help you?

What my clients say

  • I was only able to attend a couple of the classes with my daughter and partner, but each time I was made to feel welcome and at-ease. I was very impressed with the environment that had been created for mums and babies, and the calm, relaxed professionalism of Ruth. Highly recommend her and Poppy has clearly benefited from the baby massage classes. Thank you.

  • The baby massage course finished today and we’ve really enjoyed it. Ruth is a brilliant instructor and really made you feel welcome and relaxed. It was a lovely atmosphere each week and the pace was at a level where you could learn the technique easily. Fathers were also welcome to come along so my hubby attended a few of the sessions. I’ll miss this class and I know Oliver will too!

  • Absolutely loved my 1-1 session and so did Oliver. Ruth is really knowledgeable, it was so much more than just a massage, I learnt so much and was reassured with any feeding concerns I had. Definitely recommend her. Xx

  • Ben, Chris and I thoroughly enjoyed our massage course, Ruth is a lovely, knowledgeable, relaxing teacher and not only did she teach us how to massage our babies, she also gave insight and advice on what to expect in the coming weeks. We are definitely going to miss our class and sad that we will not see Ruth every Saturday morning but the skills we gained to calm Ben is priceless. The course is held in a relaxed environment and her teaching style makes it easy to follow. Thankyou Ruth for her patience and guidance and I would recommend any new mum the course.

  • My 13 month old son has always been great at self soothing and settling himself to sleep at night from an early age. Imagine my horror when for 3 nights in a row it was taking over an hour and a half to get him to sleep?! There was only one thing for it, I contacted the baby guru, aka Ruth from First Steps Consultancy. She talked me through a couple of options to help my son get back to his normal settling ways, with my husband and I deciding to try controlled comforting. Ruth talked us through it, how to carry it out and how long it should take to see results. The first night we tried it, he was asleep within 10 minutes, the next 2 minutes and now he’s back to his normal self. We cannot thank Ruth enough for her support and wisdom!

  • "We have loved baby massage! Ruth always makes us feel very welcome in group and it's been so nice to meet new babies and mummies. The massages that we have been learning have helped with Colic, constipation and most definitely bonding. Annabelle is so relaxed at the end of our sessions I have to wake her up for feeds!!!"

  • "Brilliant class, my baby daughter loved it. Felt very at ease in the class and would definitely recommend attending this class. Also, perfect for us as on Saturdays which many classes are in the week so dad could be involved"

  • "My little girl absolutely loves Ruth's classes. She stays awake for her whole session and grins throughout! I've now started using massage twice a day as part of our routine which has really helped with my baby's constipation! I thoroughly recommend these classes! It's such a joy to watch your baby enjoy something so much! I've even taught my husband how to do it!"
    Michelle E May 2017

  • "We loved baby massage with Ruth! She is an excellent instructor - so welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. My son loves his massages - he was so relaxed that he fell asleep in the class yesterday during his full body massage, and was super chilled and content all evening! He gets so excited and smiley when he knows it's massage time! Thanks Ruth!"
    Faye S May 2017

  • "I received some very helpful friendly sleep advice from the lovely Ruth regarding my toddler who currently wakes every night we are putting some things into place to try and improve his sleep pattern now we the advice about a few different methods was so helpful and very friendly "
    Jessica C February 2017

  • "I did baby massage with Ruth and my son, it was fantastic, we felt very welcomed and we thoroughly enjoyed it! It helped with all sorts of problems with my son and myself. Going on nearly 3 years and we are still using the same techniques to help with some tummy troubles and restless legs. It is not just about massaging your baby it's about helping them with their distress and also good for your mind too, it definitely helped me through the first few months and having Ruth to help was amazing! Definitely recommend! "
