Baby massage classes are a fun way to learn how to soothe your baby, relieve tummy upsets, learn to understand your baby’s non-verbal language and get to know your baby.
My classes are informal, relaxed, and small enough to ensure you get the personal attention you need. Infant massage is simple, easy to learn and effective! Happy relaxed parents help create happy relaxed babies.
There are many benefits of massage. We hear about many of these benefits in the classes: the baby who sleeps through the night for the first time, the great poop that constipated baby had on the way home from class, how a parent feels closer to their child, how a father now feels like an important part of his child’s life now.
The course comprises of 6 weekly 60 minute sessions and includes:
– Expert baby massage tuition and ‘take home’ course notes each week
– Use of a tranquil studio space in a convenient city center venue
– Massage mat for you and baby to be comfortable in the class
– A 50ml flip top bottle of high quality, cold pressed organic pure oil to use in class and to keep
– A certificate of attendance at the end of the course
– 6th session for ‘partners’ only (held at a on a Saturday

Baby massage has amazing benefits for both parent and baby, including:
– enhancing bonding and attachment,
– awareness of non-verbal cues from your baby,
– relieves wind, colic and constipation,
– promotes better sleep patterns,
– supports their immune system,
– supports the developmental stages.
My philosophy of care is based on the belief that pregnancy and birth are natural physiological processes, that women have the innate ability to birth their babies, and that birth is almost always a family event rather than a medical one. My aim is to support people so they emerge from the childbirth continuum feeling joyful, strong and empowered and babies are met in the most gentle way possible, whatever the setting.
