Baby Massage & Postnatal Support Courses
Baby massage is widely recognised as bringing many physiological and psychological benefits to you and your baby. Touch is a baby's first language and plays a vital role in forming early parent child relationships.The nurturing tactile stimulation which takes place during a class helps to contribute to the development of your baby's brain and nervous system.
Why not experience for yourself the wonderful benefits of baby massage.
My 5 week course is designed to help you discover the enjoyment and closeness of
baby massage in a small group in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
The first few months of motherhood although amazing, can also be extremely
overwhelming at times. These classes are also an opportunity to meet other moms
going through the same things and get full support and advice from a very experienced midwife.
My Baby Massage Classes are different to the rest and will not only teach you how to massage your baby, but more importantly are a fun and safe place to get all of your worries and concerns answered by a qualified midwife during what can be a tiring and overwhelming time when there is also sadly a reduction in Midwifery and Health Visiting Services.
I will also be offering weekly weight checks of your baby for you as part of the class and
there is also cake included for you!
Baby Massage classes encourage you to establish eye contact as much as possible
throughout the session.The classes provide an opportunity for you to completely '
be' with your baby. It has been proven that babies who receive nurturing touch
through massage and other forms of loving physical contact gain weight faster,
are calmer and have better intellectual and motor development than babies who
do not. Dads are most welcome to attend either with your partner or alone with
Please remember to bring your baby changing mat and a baby towel to both baby
massage and baby yoga classes so your baby has something familiar to lie on.
As babies skins are so sensitive, please can you also bring your own choice of
baby oil / cream to the sessions to avoid any adverse skin reactions.
Courses are suitable for babies from 4 weeks to 8 months.
The above course runs on Mondays in Sutton Coldfield and Wednesdays in
Solihull from 11am - 12 30pm
