Our Phenyo

She was a driving force in assisting a little girl Phenyo Mackenzie Moropa who was born with a rare birth defect called Tibial Hemimelia Jones type 2 . Her parents extensively sought medical help to prevent the amputation of the little girl’s leg which doctors advised. Her parents, not ready to give up, did their own research and found a doctor, Dr. Paleyin Florida, USA, who had pioneered treatment that would save little Phenyo's leg.

Victoria offered to assist in strengthening the little girl's leg through water therapy and after two years of constant water therapy. Victoria further assisted the parents to raise the 150 thousand dollars necessary for the medical expenses and the air fares to Florida.

The little girl is now walking and fully recovered! Her parents are forever grateful to Victoria in playing such a huge part in saving their little girls leg.

Our Story

Mind Body Baby is a new world for infant health, wellness and development. The Mind Body Baby concept was brought to South Africa in October 2013 and has grown from strength to strength.

Infant water safety / play begins with natural movements assisting in colic, reflux, strengthening and early water exposure, teaching vital skills such as motor, control and water confidence and safety as well as qualified techniques to assist all our amazing special needs babies. This is followed by a specialised infant massage trained by Peter Walker concentrating in the 1st 1001 critical days of life guiding in pressure points, breathing and blood circulation.

We also offer moms training in creating the Mind Body Baby lifestyle at home. We ensure a staff base qualified and trained in swim/special needs and infant massage - milestone development and specific fields required per location and specifications (playgroup, physiotherapist, nutritionist, fitness instructors etc.). Mind Body Baby believes in a holistic approach in assisting in ailments and development through consistency and understanding of the physiological and mental development of our babies helping create calmness and bonding at home. This has proved to be extremely beneficial as the babies who test 6-20 months more advance in verbal, math, and reasoning set at a playschool entry.

The Mind Creates the Body.

The first 1,001 days of a child’s life – from conception to mobility – is recognized as being the most vital time in her development. It is in this primal period that the roots of emotional, physical and physiological health are laid down. Childhood stays with us from life; adult behavior and personality characteristics are shaped by the events of infancy and childhood. The 1,001-critical-days theory recognizes that this early period has a major influence upon child and adult health and future lifestyle choices.
