Helen Thompson


Thank you for visiting and wanting to find out more about me. I’m Helen Thompson, the host of the  First Time Mum’s Chat podcast and I’m always on the lookout for opportunities for collaborations and to appear on other podcasts.

Here’s some background on me and what I can offer to podcast audiences and other collaborations. You’ll see a link under my photograph to download my single page bio which is in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format.

 I look forward to hearing from you and I can be reached via email here.


I qualified in the United Kingdom as a nursery nurse/childcare educator (NNEB) and have spent more than 3 decades working with babies, toddlers and small children in both the UK and Australia. I’ve always know that babies are beautiful, little people who learn how to communicate through play and loving touch and that they love watching and learning from their parents/carers.

Over the years I’ve sought opportunities to help parents in a more meaningful way and in 2010 I discovered baby/inf’ant massage and was instantly hooked! I trained as an instructor after seeing how parents’ relationships with their babies were transformed and the healing that took place. I never cease to be amazed by the magical bonds that are formed between babies and parents, and the increase in confidence that parents feel in their interactions with their baby.

In interviews, I can draw from my many years of experience working as a childcare educator and more recently as a baby massage instructor. I’m passionate about baby/infant massage and I want to see it utilised by as many parents as possible. I can talk about its many benefits to both parent and baby and how easy it is to get started.
