About Polly & Mel

Polly set up The Bath Massage Company in 2010 offering specialist maternity services – from here Polly went onto launch Bath Baby Massage in 2013 and has been helping parents and babies feel happy, supported and relaxed through her professional and fun courses.

Baby Massage first came to the western world in the 1960s after Vimala McClure, founder of the IAIM International Association of Infant Massage, created the first training programme for parents. It has become the original and longest-running training programme worldwide and it is through them that Polly gained her Infant Massage Trainers certificate.

Polly is also on the board of directors with the IAIM and runs the PR/Marketing for the association.

An expert in her field, Polly focuses the courses on encouraging positive touch and communication, and help nurture relationships between parent and baby to help build strong and secure attachments for the future.


Mel Williamson joined Bath Baby Massage in 2017 and works with Polly to deliver the courses. Mel has an extensive background working in the maternity sector and specialises in maternity massage and Reflexology as part of the team at The Bath Massage Company. Mel will also be offering Baby Yoga courses from Spring 2021.
