About our baby massage classes

Baby massage is a calm and relaxing way to spend time with your baby. Baby massages have many benefits including:

Supporting and understanding baby’s needs, supporting the early bond between parent/carer and baby, Improving sense of wellbeing, Increasing confidence in recognising baby’s needs, Improved positive interaction with baby, Improved sleep for baby.

The course runs for six weeks, and each session is an hour long. Massages will not take the whole session to allow time for feeding, sleepy babies or babies that just need cuddles. Through the session you will have the opportunity to talk about your baby and your experiences as a parent so far.

What age is best for taking part in the baby massage classes?

At around 8 weeks old (and after your GP check up), your baby will be mobile enough to benefit from our baby massage classes.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring your own changing mat and a towel or blanket so you can wrap baby up when you’ve finished the massage.
