Where it all started

About Babyopathy

Babyopathy is the brain child of Angela J Spencer, who has owned and operated children’s nurseries for 25 years. It is a sensory based baby-led development programme with its basis in the biophilia hypothesis (our in-built connection to nature) that has been continuously refined to nurture a baby’s complete well-being and natural development through sensory and holistic activities.

Now, through our online training, local consultants and Angela’s continual work, Babyopathy can help nurture more babies from conception, through pregnancy, birth and throughout baby’s first years.

Our History

Angela opened her first nursery aged just 21 years old. With a background in training and HR dealing with women on maternity leave, she soon realised there was a need for a nursery in her local area. When she had her own children (who are now 18 and 22) , neither of them slept for more than two hours for three years! So, she began researching everything that can have an impact on a baby and children eventually introducing the her own sensory and nature based development programme in to her nurseries in 2000. Over the years, and with continual research, Angela has positively influenced the lives and development of thousands of children, this achievement culminating in being named one of the Top 10 Most Influential in Childcare in 2017. Angela published her first book in 2014, bringing Babyopathy to everyone, and not just the children in her care. Since then, she has worked with many women privately through their pregnancy, birth and baby journey with Babyopathy being named by Mother & Baby magazine as ‘The New Routine for 2017’.

Our Vision

Getting pregnant and having a baby seems to have become something very stressful for so many women, Angela’s vision is to turn this around back to the positive way it should be! She aims to reclaim motherhood as a positive, stress-free experience nurtured throughout by the sensory concepts of Babyopathy and reclaim womanhood as women being recognised for the strong and beautiful people just as they are, with mums supporting mums; rejecting judgment, comparison and negativity!
