Our 5 week Baby Massage course is a relaxing, informal course helping you to further bond with your baby. It is also an opportunity to meet other local, new parents.
Baby Massage stimulates the body’s main systems and has a range of health benefits such as helping with common baby ailments; alleviating colic, digestive problems, sleep problems and skin rashes
Each week there is a focus on a different area of your baby’s body and you will learn a basic baby massage routine that you can safely and effectively practice in your own home
The recommended age for babies for this course is 8 weeks – 6 months. The course is generally more effective if your baby is not yet mobile.
It is advisable for you and your baby to have attended the 8 week check with your health visitor before accessing Baby Massage and we do give you the opportunity to patch test the oil our qualified trainer provides or bring along your own high quality, cold pressed vegetable based oil.
The cost of this course is £25. If you are on a means tested benefit or are experiencing financial hardship you may be entitled to support with this cost, please speak to us here at the Children's Centre
