Baby massage is a gorgeous 5 week course where you will enjoy learning to massage your baby safely and have opportunity to discuss the joys and challenges of parenting with friends old and new. It’s relaxed, safe, simple and fun!
Baby massage offers increased skin to skin contact, aiding relaxation and enhancing your bond with your baby. Babies, and Dads often sleep much more deeply after massage which is great for everyone. It can also help relieve wind, colic and constipation whilst supporting all areas of Baby’s development. You will learn more about your baby’s communication which can enhance your confidence as a parent and help you feel a closer bond and connection with your baby. Babies are welcome with all their states, noises and moods so there’s no need to worry about your baby needing to feed cry or sleep during class!
The course is suitable from birth to 1 year, however it’s a balance between starting early for increased benefits and Baby being awake longer in class after a few weeks so starting after 4-6 weeks is a good option. It’s a great place to meet other new Dads too. Book your partner in, a lovely Xmas gift from your baby to their Dad! Dad and Baby can enjoy some quality time and you can take a little time out from your busy week for yourself, or for your other children.
The course is £50 including massage oil, class handouts and simple refreshments and a graduation certificate, so all you need to bring is yourselves.
I have been teaching parents to massage their babies since 2010, it’s a lovely time for you and your baby, a skill for life. I’ve worked for many years a Midwife, Nurse and Health Visitor and am now also a pregnancy and postnatal yoga teacher. Baby Massage is a very special time, an ideal gift for a new parent or baby.
