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.
All parents and caregivers are welcome at Bump to Baby. For expectant parents we work with baby massage dolls to allow you and/or your partner to prepare for when your baby arrives. We also use dolls if your baby isn't feeling up to being massaged on the day.
