ChrisHi my name is Chris Garner and I would like to welcome you to Parent and Baby Coach. An established business in the area with tailor made sessions and support for you throughout your parenting journey. Whether you are interested in making sure your relationship with your baby gets off to an amazing start by learning baby massage or you want to become confident in first aid in order to cope in an emergency. It might be that your little one is displaying behaviour that you would like to see less of – I can help.

Being part of a family is one of the most precious gifts we can have as human beings. Often though family life doesn’t go as  smoothly as we would like it to.

All caregivers will admit that at times they feel love, frustration, joy, exhaustion, elation and pride – emotions that are sometimes experienced in the space of 24 hours!  We try our best but we don’t always get it right.

There is no such thing as the perfect parent or perfect family, but what I can do for you is teach you skills  which will help you feel confident with your baby and child as they grow. My main aim is to help you achieve a happy and harmonious family life for the benefit of you and your children

Based in Kendal (Cumbria), I provide a number of services in the North West of England.

I am qualified as member of International Association of Infant Massage and have been teaching baby massage since 2010.

I am a qualified first aid instructor and up to 2014 I have delivered first aid courses for St John Ambulance. An organisation I previously worked for as an instructor for 8 years.

I have a Certificate in Education from Manchester University and have worked for Manchester City Council and Cumbria County Council as part of their  Adult Education Service. I also worked more recently for Barnardo’s Sure Start Children’s Centre providing sessions for parents.  I hold a positive parent teaching qualification (Triple P 2009).  I have worked with parents and their children since 2000.

I have a weekly Positive Parenting column in the Westmoreland Gazette.

I can offer you:-

  • Baby Massage;
  • Paediatric first aid; and
  • Triple P Positive Parenting Programmes from 2-12 and 12-16 years.

I feel passionate about children and offering them the best start in life on their journey to adulthood and I would love to help you with that goal.

As a mum to two young adults I know that being a parent is a continual journey and we should aim to be the best we can.

Give me a call or email me today to chat through how I can help you.
