Founder & Visionary of Baby’s First Massage®
BSN, LMT, CIMI, CNMI
The love I have for preparing and certifying new instructors in Baby’s First Massage® is enduring! The valuable life experiences as an obstetrics nurse and educator along with the practical experiences and knowledge that I gained through therapeutic massage, infant massage certifications, and continuing education in the area of bodywork with babies helped make this training realistic and easy to implement. As Founder of the Baby’s First Massage® training, and having presented the material for 20 years, I continue to offer support to Amy Stenger Sullivan, the new owner. And, I will train in person wherever she would like me to train!
A Note From Teresa
It is with deep gratitude for all the wonderful people I have met through developing Baby’s First Massage® Program, that I place this “Baby” in the very capable hands of Amy Stenger Sullivan, the new owner and carrier of the vision.
Even though the passion to do this was passed onto me, I never felt I did this on my own! I had so many perfect helpers from the families that let me photograph them, and videotape them to the graphic design people, the printers, Chris James, my webmaster, also, my son David Ramsey for web development along the way, the massage schools, hospitals, individuals that hosted the training over these 20 years of offering the programs to the public, and the thousands of participants that are now trained, most are certified, and for their energy in getting the program implemented in many locations in the USA and overseas. Especially, I am grateful for the women that took bigger steps with me, went deeper in becoming trained to assist in giving the workshops. They have extended Baby’s First Massage® reach at a time when travel was taking its toll on me! I am at retirement age now. It has been an exhilarating experience and profoundly self healing to continue the quest to offer an art, a skill, a healing little piece of baby massage to new families.
The blessings continue as Amy Stenger Sullivan becomes the new owner and carrier of this program. Amy has been a Baby’s First Massage certified instructor since 2002, and an effective, highly regarded workshop presenter of additional programs that compliment Baby’s First Massage® . I feel so very good about her taking the helm and bringing new life to our workshops! She is committed to keeping high quality in all her educational offerings. All the current Baby’s First Massage materials continue to be available at the same affordable cost. I ask you to join me in welcoming her as Owner of Baby’s First Massage® Program! Blessings in all ways to you, Amy!
