Caron understands your baby is extremely precious and as such also runs monthly Paediatric First Aid Courses in, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield and Harborne.to give you the confidence to know what to do should the unthinkable happen.

 

This course is invaluable for parents, grandparents and anyone who is going to be caring for your baby. Please                                      for all details of my Baby First Aid Courses!

Our Baby First Aid Courses are 2 hours long and cost £60 per couple or £35 per person.

"Online and Interactive" 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. 

Our 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. 

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

your baby.

 

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.

Many Thanks
