Baby Massage

What is Baby Massage and what do classes involve?
 

Classes will be over a 5 week course and each week we will focus on a new body part, gradually building up to massaging the whole of your baby's body.

These classes will also include time for you to meet other parents, share information and have a chat over some tea/coffee and biscuits (all provided).

  • Relieves wind, colic and constipation

  • Encourages a deeper sleep and promotes regular sleep patterns.

  • Provides relief (growing pains, teething and excess mucus.)

  • Bonding (parent-baby communication and positive touch)

Baby yoga involves specially devised stretch and movement sequences, not only for your baby but for you too.

During these classes you will learn a series of structured baby yoga moves to help nurture and promote your baby's health & development.

Classes will offer gentle stretches, movements and breathing techniques for parents and carers; a great way to help relieve any tightness, tension and build your body's strength and tone. Baby massage and sensory will also be used.

FAQ'S





What to bring to baby massage and yoga classes?

Baby Massage - You will need a small baby blanket and a towel, along with the usual baby essentials such as nappies and wipes etc.
Padded mats will be provided which you can then pop your own baby blanket on. 

Baby Yoga - Yoga mats will be provided however you can bring your own if you wish.  You will also need a small baby blanket.

 


What if my baby needs feeding, a nappy change or sleep?

It doesn't matter if your baby cries, needs feeding, is asleep or needs a nappy change during the class - these things will happen and are perfectly normal!

Each week we will recap on the previous lesson and ensure everyone is comfortable before moving on. Parents on both the baby massage and baby yoga course will receive illustrated handouts to help them practice at home.



What if my baby has just been fed before the class?

Baby massage and yoga shouldn't be practiced on a full tummy, you should wait at least 30-40 minutes after feeding. Of course you can't always time your baby's feeds and that is absolutely okay, your baby's needs come first! If your baby has had a feed just before/during the class then we will have to leave tummy strokes and some yoga moves for another time. There are still plenty of things we can practice though.




What if I arrive and my baby is asleep?

If you arrive and your baby is asleep, please don't worry. it is best not to wake your baby and allow him/her to wake naturally.

There will be a spare demonstration doll at hand so whilst waiting for your little one to wake up, you can still join in the class and learn everything for when your baby is awake.




Are these classes for all babies? Medical condition/ Additional needs.

Yes. Regardless of any medical or additional needs that your baby may have, touch and communication is important!
Our classes can support everyone although we do recommend that parents speak to their GP's to ensure that any medical needs are addressed before attending.

Get in touch with Rebecca to see how these classes can support you and your baby.
