Founder and Teacher
Jackie Heffer Cooke
She is a master in Pregnancy Massage and Specialised Massage Techniques for Baby Positioning, Natural Induction and Labour. In addition, she is also a ‘better birthing’ activist and leads the NNUH MVP as the chair.
Having worked within pregnancy and birthing for nine years, Jackie has inspired thousands of pregnant women to ease their way calmly, and confidently through pregnancy and birth. Jackie also writes for publications such as Mother & Baby magazine and Babycentre, has a column in the regional newspaper and is often a guest speaker for BBC Radio and Future Radio.
Jackie uses her own sanity tool kit of yoga, breath, self-care, adventure, and humour to negotiate her way through life, and uses all the practises she teaches to stay sane, happy and healthy in her own everyday family life.
Most importantly, Jackie is a proud mum of two and loves nothing better than family friendly festivals in the summer and muddy wellies in the winter!
