Baby Massage Classes

Baby Massage- our classes are taken by Tummy2mummy midwives/health professionals that hold a diploma in baby massage

Touch is baby’s first “language”. Touching, holding hugging and kissing promotes secure attachment between parent and child.

A baby’s motor development start from the head and moves down to the toes in the first year. Baby massage helps to develop body awareness and coordination as well as strengthening and toning muscles.

classes for babies from 6 weeks old

Benefits

  • Trapped wind and colic
  • Constipation
  • Teething pain
  • Blocked nose
  • Skin to skin contact, stimulating the release of oxytocin
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Regulation and strengthening of baby’s digestive and respiratory systems
  • Stimulation of circulatory and nervous systems

Group Classes

Classes run over four weeks, and we build on the massage stroke repertoire in each session. It takes time for babies to get used to the feeling of being massaged, so we will gradually increase the length of the massage each week.

Scales are available to have your baby weighed and as trained health professionals we can document weights in your baby`s growth booklet.

You will be supplied with oil and a hand out with all the strokes explained and pictured. Lots of time for questions with updated research evidence answers. Classes are limited to 8 babies.
