baby massage classes

A lovely way for you to express your love for and bond with your baby

WHAT IS BABY MASSAGE?

Baby massage is gentle, rhythmic stroking of your baby's body with your hands. As part of your massage routine, you can also gently manipulate your baby's ankles, feet, wrists and fingers.

The soothing strokes of your hands stimulate the production of oxytocin, the feel-good hormone, in you and your baby. Oxytocin is the hormone that gives you that warm, loving feeling when you hold your baby close or breastfeed them.

What are the benefits?

Massage can help your baby to:

  • strengthen their attachment to you
  • cry less
  • sleep better
  • stay calm and relaxed

There are lots of ways that baby massage can benefit not just your baby, but you and your partner as well. Giving your baby a massage can lift your mood and help you feel more empowered as a parent. It comes naturally to chat and make eye contact with your baby as you massage them. The time you set aside for a massage is a special time together.

Baby massage can be great for Dads too. Some Dads may miss out on a lot of the hands on care of their baby, especially if they are at work and their baby is breastfed. A regular massage with Dad, perhaps at bedtime, can become a routine that helps to bring them closer.

FEEDBACK FROM MY CLIENTS:

“Kate’s baby massage course was a great way for me and my newborn to get to know each other and spend a quality time together in the early days. Kate has such a calming influence and soft voice that kept all the babies happy. I shall miss a Wednesday afternoon at yours Kate, not just for the tea and biscuits! Thank you"

"Absolutely fantastic massage course. Great pace and Kate was a fantastic teacher and host. You made us and our little ones feel so welcome in your home.

Would highly recommend to everyone. Thanks Kate!"

Louise

"What a lovely baby massage course! It was so lovely to spend quality time with my baby learning techniques to calm and relax her. Kate provided a warm and welcoming environment which was completely baby led.

I met some lovely other mums and we all got on very well during the course, so much so we often over ran due to lots of 'Mum chat'. Thank you so much Kate!"
