I love running my baby massage courses and it is so much more than a group to do with your baby. I run small groups so the sessions are informal and friendly – this means you can chat and ask all the questions you need about life with your young baby. The sessions can be a giggle and we can also have some tears – from mums and babies – and that’s all fine and the sessions can be as relaxing for the mums as well as the babies.
In each session there is obviously baby massage but there’s also conversation, tea and cake. The sessions can be relaxing, informative and supportive and it’s great to watch the babies respond to being massaged.
It can help you to settle and soothe your baby, it can help to relieve your baby’s trapped wind and constipation and it can help you feel more relaxed and able to help your baby. Babies can sleep really well afterwards too!
There are four sessions in a course, which run at the Birth, Baby & Family Centre in North Shields. Each course costs £35 and it includes handouts, massage oil, tea and cake – all you need to do is bring your baby. You can even do the course with your baby again for a reduced course fee.
Baby massage is an absolute favourite of mine – it’s a really enjoyable and relaxing afternoon. And as I am a pregnancy, birth and parenting practitioner, I am on hand for information, support and reassurance.
Courses run on Thursday and Friday afternoons – just go to the massage page for course dates
