For Pregnancy, Birth and Babies
Welcome to Babymoon
My name is Samantha Lealman and I am happy to see you here.
Having a baby can be the most amazing and life changing experience, one that we should cherish for the
rest of our lives. All children bring challenges, but also the greatest love, happiness and sense of fulfilment.
As a registered midwife I have over 25 years’ experience within the NHS and in private practice. During this time, I have rotated into all areas.
I have also specialised in delivering breastfeeding support and
information as well as working in Sure Start, the Family Nurse partnership and with Neighbourhood Midwives.
I am qualified in Hypnobirthing and Baby Massage.
I strongly believe that pregnancy and birth are normal healthy states for women and their partners. I want all families to have a safe and satisfying journey that gives their baby a calm, warm welcome into the world.
Once here children need to be loved and nurtured and parents need to feel they are supported by a community.
I hope that my services will give parents the opportunity to get the things they need to really enjoy the whole 'becoming a parent' experience. I want parents to be supported and well informed so they can feel confident that they are making the right choices for themselves and their family.
This private practice has been developed to give you a little more time and a little bit extra. I look forward to helping you on your unique journey into parenthood.

Online Baby Massage Course
Here for You
This group online course will give you five sessions over five weeks. Each session will last at least 1 hour. Each week we will learn the different massage strokes so that by week five you will be able to give your baby a full body massage. We will also explore common parenting themes like crying and soothing, infant attachment and early play and development. This friendly, social group will give you time to relax and refresh from the busy, 24 hour, hands-on life of new parents. Relax in the company of new friends and share your parenting experiences. Bring a cup of tea and a biscuit!
Online Postnatal Group
Informative and Compassionate
In response to the Covid-19 lockdown I am currently running an on-line group for my parents to enjoy. This is a free weekly on-line meet-up. We are coming together in a spirit of community. The sessions are group led so parents can suggest topics to explore. Each week there will be time to check-in on our experiences of parenting during the lockdown, relaxation and exploration of parenting themes around health and well-being as well as child development. Most importantly we are coming together to keep our friendships going and have some fun.
We really enjoyed Sam's courses. There was lots to learn and Sam made it fun and engaging. Its easy to relax in capable hands. We would recommend these classes to all parents-to-be.
