Tash Hughes

Children’s nurse

Baby Massage instructor

Baby and Child Sleep Consultant

Founder of Rubba-bubba Baby Massage

Tash has loved professionally working with and caring for babies for as long as she can remember, from baby-sitting and child minding, to qualifying as a nursery nurse. In 2009, she qualified as a Children’s nurse (RCBN) in Swansea University.

In January 2013 she founded Rubba-bubba baby massage as well as becoming a mum to a beautiful little girl. Tash teaches baby massage along side nursing in a Special care baby unit in West wales and currently works on the Children’s ward.

“Being part of so many stressful and traumatic times for both parents and baby, (whether baby needed SCBU or not) plus as a mum myself, I can really appreciate the precious time you have with your baby and the barriers you may face. Baby massage really overcomes a lot of those hurdles that exist in day-to-day life as a new mum. I love the fact baby massage is such a simple and relaxing skill but yet there’s so many benefits to.”

Tash qualified as an infant massage instructor with one of the UK’s leading training providers Hands on babies in London. The qualification is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives (RCM).

Sleep Coaching

Tash is a qualified level 3 and level 4 baby and child sleep coach. Anyone who knows Tash, knows how much she loves babies and children to get the sleep they need. No-one needs sleep more than little ones- to cope with the day, to grow, to learn, to feel like eating, to develop, to concentrate, to enjoy, to heal, to listen and most importantly to be happy. Parents and carers also need to be well rested to function and cope with day to day life.

Tash offers one-to-one sleep coaching sessions (from £60) at the convenience of your own home or via Skype to help you get some much needed sleep. You do not need to live in South Wales.
