Midwife-Led Baby Massage and Postnatal Support Courses
Solihull & Sutton Coldfield
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 stimulations 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 five week course is designed to help you discover the 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. My classes are also an opportunity to meet other new moms going through the same things and get full support from a very experienced midwife who will reassure you and answer all of your questions.
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 put to bed by a qualified practising midwife during what can be a tiring and frightening time for you and where sadly there is 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 too!
Baby Massage 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 their baby.
Please remember to bring your baby changing mat and a bath towel so that your baby has something familiar and warm to lie on.
As babies" skins are so sensitive, please bring an oil or cream that you are comfortable with using to the sessions to avoid any adverse skin reactions.
Courses are suitable for babies from 4 weeks of age to 8 months of age.
Baby Massage Courses run on Mondays in Sutton Coldfield and Wednesdays in Solihull in both areas from 11am - 12 30pm
Cost £60 for the 5 Week Course
