Hi, I'm Vickie!


A slow living, coffee sipping, tie-dye loving, mum of 2; who is here to support you and your family.

My dream of creating a family focused wellbeing haven started back in 2017 when i was working as a senior specialist nurse for teenagers & young adults.  I began learning about attachment theory and how infant mental health literally shapes how the brain develops...and that was it, i had found my "geek zone". Keen to learn more, i switched specialties and started working in health visiting and this is then when i became passionate about maternal mental well-being too.

When my first daughter was born a few weeks into the first national lockdown in 2020. I turned to baby massage and baby yoga to help settle and soothe the colicky pains she experienced nightly. I quickly realised that these practices were benefiting us both far beyond what i expected; it helped us find a sense of calm in what felt like a crazy world. At the end of 2020, I decided to combine my passion for yoga, singing and movement- and along came Calma Alma.
