Baby Massage Course
What is Baby Massage?
Baby massage is an amazingly enjoyable way of enhancing the bond and secure attachment between you and your baby. The techniques of baby massage have been passed down through many generations in lots of countries of the world and therefore the techniques you learn are derived from techniques from Sweden, China and India.
Baby massage is a way of enhancing your bond with your baby through becoming more in tune with their cues and behaviours and demonstrating your love for them through massage, to help them feel more calm and content.
Massage is beneficial for both you and your baby and these benefits include:
helping your baby sleep deeper and longer
helping your baby to feel loved, valued and understood
improving your baby’s circulation and digestion
helping weight gain and overall development for your baby
relieving symptoms of wind and constipation for your baby
relieving symptoms of teething for your baby
help you to feel more confident and reduce anxiety and depression
My course is taught over 6 sessions which can be 1:1 or in small group. The sessions can be held in the comfort of your own home, or in a local venue.
In my experience as both a midwife and a mother, I have found baby massage to be invaluable in cementing the bond between you and your baby. The techniques learnt during the course are simple but effective and can be used from newborn right into childhood.
I usually recommend to start the course anytime between 6 weeks of age and up to when your baby starts crawling.
Included as part of the course, you will receive a comprehensive handbook, starter oils and delicious refreshments.
What Shall I Bring?
Oils and mats to use during the sessions will be provided.

a clean, soft towel to lie your baby on
