Why massage your baby?
Baby Massage is a wonderful way to spend time enjoying your new baby and deepening your bond. Nurturing touch has been proved to have a significant positive and lasting effect on babies.
Baby massage is beneficial for all parents and babies, but especially for those born prematurely, special needs babies, babies with colic or constipation or mothers with postnatal depression.
Baby Massage Group Classes
I teach Baby Massage Group Classes in "The Old School House" in Delgany, Co. Wicklow.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, these classes will be run in slightly alternative ways in order to provide a safe environment for all involved, and to be in line with the general health and safety advice. We work in small groups but we have to use a large room in order to provide social distancing. Large rooms are not very warm and therefore we will not be able to undress the babies. During this 5 week course I will teach you all the baby massage strokes and you can follow along massaging your dressed baby, at home you can practice and enjoy a proper skin-to-skin massage.
The classes run on Thursday mornings from10.30am to12.00pm,
6 parents & babies
€125 for 5-week course
The course includes baby massage oil, handout notes, option to join our chat group in which I will post video tutorials so that you can practice at home and so that those who missed a class can still learn to new strokes.
Each class also includes some gentle parent & baby games/exercises and time for tea/coffee & chats.
