I teach parents and caregivers how to massage their babies in a safe way, using a combination of Swedish and Indian massage strokes, reflexology and gentle yoga movements.
Baby massage has been known to help babies with conditions such as colic, ease discomfort from growing pains, promote relaxation which leads to better sleeping patterns, and even post-natal depression in new mums.
At Bump to Baby, we see baby massage as an integral tool that promotes nurturing touch, bonding, attachment and development. All of my classes are baby-led - your baby is the teacher, you are the expert, I'm just there to guide you. Having a new baby can be pretty confusing and isolating at the best of times, so I wanted to make sure this is a service that provides support, guidance and practical wellness for all parents and caregivers.
I have a special affinity for young parents and caregivers, being one myself, and I understand that it comes with its own unique challenges. With that in mind, I have a course specifically designed for young parents to provide a safe, judgement free space, so you can discover new ways to bond with your baby and get to know other people in the same boat as you.
I also have a course dedicated to all expectant parents, where we work with baby massage dolls to allow you and/or your partner to prepare for when your baby arrives.
