Baby massage provides a wonderful, nurturing experience for both you and your baby, and also offers a unique way for you to communicate with your child.
My Baby Massage course is certified by To Baby and Beyond, whose training courses are accredited by the prestigious Royal College of Midwives.
The massage benefits for both baby and parents are numerous! Enhanced bonding, communication, health and sleep are all cited as positive outcomes of baby massage.
All the oils we use in class are organic, 1 50ml bottle of 100% pure organic oil is provided for each parent/carer. You also have the option to do a dry massage if you prefer. If your baby has eczema or any other skin problem you are welcome to use a prescribed cream from your doctor instead.
My classes allow yourself and baby to take time out from the busy world, and concentrate on being mindful in your precious moments together. All sessions are baby-led, so you can just feed, comfort and change baby’s nappy as and whenever needed throughout the session. Don’t worry about missing any strokes: you will be given a colour guide booklet full of useful instructions and tips so you can practise at home.
