A business set up by two St Austell women is proving to be a major success with growing numbers of parents across the Cornwall.

Nurturing Hands was launched in 2009 by two mums – Amy Lovegrove and Sarah Franks – with the aim of providing parents across Cornwall with a wide range of support services from baby massage workshops and baby academy courses.

Lovegrove, a child practitioner with ten years’ experience, said: “From day one, the reaction to Nurturing Hands has been really positive and we are delighted that the interest from across the county is growing.”

Such has been the interest in Nurturing Hands, that new baby massage, baby academy and toddler academy courses will soon be opening in the Truro and Newquay areas to keep up with demand.
