Frequently Asked Questions

How much time?

Small snippets.

Don’t you need to see my baby?

If you have specific concerns and are local then we can arrange a meet up. Otherwise photographs and/or videos will be able to see if you should see another professional in person.

Can’t I get all of this from books/for free?

Yes, but you have access to me to ask questions. Like having a baby expert/physio in your pocket. You also get to connect with other mums who are going through similar experiences. This is all in one place and shows step by step activities and explanations for all areas of development. One stop shop, etc.

Does my baby need to be able to sit up before we come to messy play?

No, your baby doesn’t need to be able to sit on their own. We have babies starting with us as early as 4 weeks and to be honest, this is the best time! There are variety of positions your baby can be in to access the messy play activities (lots of tummy time!) and we support you whatever stage your baby is at.

My baby isn't weaned yet - does it matter?

No it doesn’t. By coming to our messy play sessions you will actually be helping to get your baby ready for weaning – both by strengthening for independent sitting and also by getting used to different textures and food stuffs.

My child is waiting to see (or already does see) a specialist from the hospital (this could be a physio, OT, SALT or paediatrician). Can you help me work on supporting my child's development?

Yes for sure! We are fully inclusive and have extensive experience of working with children with a variety of conditions including sensory processing difficulties, autism, cerebral palsy, down’s syndrome, hydrocephalus etc. Classes are kept small to make sure that we can offer individual support to each child and carer throughout the session.

My baby seems to be slower than other babies her age. I'm worried about her physical development - do you do assessments?

Yes I do. I offer individual assessments where I thoroughly assess your child’s development and provide a thorough written report and advice. An assessment takes between and hour and an hour and half and includes a pre – questionnaire via email.

Whether you’re brand new to this exciting world of parenthood, or you’re looking for answers and support because your little one needs extra help, I am excited support you and your baby.

The first 5 years of your child’s life are vital to development and what you know and do, really does influence how your baby grows and learns.

I’m Bron Warner, mum to two little girls and I’m also a children’s physiotherapist. I’m guessing if you’ve landed here you have a gorgeous little person of your own too 🙂

Physi Little Movers and Plagiocephaly Solutions has been born out of my experience both as a new mum and also from my more than 17 years of working with parents and children as a physio. There have been SO many changes in the way that new babies are looked after (thanks to technology and social media to name a few) and the stress levels of new parents has risen significantly. There is so much pressure to ‘get it right’. And honestly, I think mummy guilt is an issue that needs some serious attention!

What is normal anyway?

Although I knew how to handle and play with my newborns from a physical perspective, there was so much more to being a mum that I just didn’t have a clue. And when number 2 came along things got even more complicated!

I know exactly what is missing from the health visitor visits, baby books and mums forums (who has time to read books anyway?!) and it’s all so simple. It’s my mission to help more new mums know exactly what their babies really need to help with their development and to make sure that they get the best start in life. Flat head syndrome and associated delays are completely avoidable and something new mums should not have to worry about.

That’s why I’ve created the 4 Week Baby Head Shape Bootcamp and why I run sensory messy play classes and education sessions all about happy tummy time, how to avoid flat head syndrome and how to play with your baby to help him grow and learn.

What about when things aren't quite right?

When that instinctive mama gut kicks in and you know there’s something going on with your little one? What do you do when no one listens? Or when you finally get someone to agree with you that something isn’t ‘right’? Who do you turn to then? I know how scary this can feel.

I have been privileged to work with many, many children with a variety of additional needs and I know how to help them even before there’s an ‘official diagnosis’. In fact, the earlier you and your baby get support, the better because there is so much potential for the brain and body to grow and change. Always trust your gut and if you have a worry, get some help and advice.

My down to earth and practical tendencies mean I work with you to help your child.
