More about Massage, Movement and More

Over a five week course you will see your baby blossom as he or she becomes familiar with baby massage and starts to look forward to it. After all, babies respond powerfully to touch and movement.

I do not teach a set routine; each class is about responding to your baby and giving you ideas to take home and try out. I will always demonstrate each baby massage stroke on a doll and explain why it is so helpful for your baby’s development whilst you massage your baby. I include songs and rhymes which are good fun for parents and babies.

In the first session you will learn some great ways to hold your baby that are comfortable for both of you and then try some simple massage strokes. In the following sessions we take our babies’ clothes off (yes, even nappies!), build up the massage and try out some tummy time, too, which babies love. The length of class allows time for chat and time to get to know the other parents in the group.

Sometimes your baby might not be in the mood, or might want to stop for a feed. That’s completely fine – just do whatever your baby needs and try the massage at home later. Babies often have a really good sleep and a big poo after the Massage, Movement and More class! I provide blankets, massage oil, drinks and biscuits and a free Babyin-babyout muslin, but I do ask you to bring a towel.
