Join a small group of parents and babies for an intimate hour and a half group each week. Our space is warm, cosy and clean. We want you to feel as relaxed as possible to facilitate a deeper connection between parent and baby!
Over the course of five weeks you will learn massage strokes for all areas of your baby’s body; legs, stomach, chest, arms, back and face. You will also learn strategies for specific relief of colic and gas as well as comforting holds and gentle touch. Infant massage is a means to enhance the dialogue between parent and baby. Massaging your baby is an interaction, a gentle communication through nurturing touch, eye contact and voice that is steadily built up slowly and with synchronicity with your baby over the course of the five weeks.
We offer lots of opportunity for review and practice so that you can be sure to walk away feeling confident with your new skills.
During each class we set aside time to discuss various parenting topics. We explore relevant topics such as infant cues, behavioral states, and calming strategies that will help support you along your parenting journey.
During this course, you will receive:
- The IAIM parent handbook: weekly handouts with diagrams and explanations of each new technique
- Relevant articles and extra reading material.
- Refillable bottle of pure, plant based massage oil.
- Certificate of completion after all five sessions
