What is baby massage?
Baby massage helps to create a love bubble between you and your baby. It provides the perfect environment to strengthen the bond with your baby, through touch, talk, smell, baby gazing, listening. Massage produces the love hormone, oxytocin.
Parents are babies first teachers and babies learn about emotions, feelings, and social interaction from their parents. As both of you will produce oxytocin through relaxing touch, this will allow you both to bond together, in a supportive, calm and loving environment. There is nothing better than switching off from the outside world and being present with your baby, letting them connect with you through their senses.
Baby massage has many health benefits too, such as relief from colic, constipation, congestion and even helps with teething. It can also aid the development of your baby's nervous system and improve the effectiveness of messages being sent from your baby's brain to other areas of their body.
This class will help to support babies' emotional development in order to help create a secure child who is confident to explore the world, interacting with others with the knowledge that he/she is loved.
This 5 week course is baby-led so throughout the sessions we will check in with baby to ensure they are happy and relaxed. If your baby would like to feed, cuddle or sleep during our session then they are more than welcome to do so, all strokes will be repeated the following week so you will be able to watch and join in when baby feels ready. And please DO NOT worry if your baby cries, it's okay, we've all been there, this is a safe space for you.
