Baby Massage FAQs
Who is baby Massage for?
Baby Massage classes are for parent and baby, the mother or father of the baby will massage their baby whilst learning the routine.
How old does my baby need to be?
Baby massage classes are for babies aged 8 weeks to pre crawling.
What should I bring with me?
A familiar blanket for baby. Everything else including mats, cushions, and oils are provided.
What if my baby cries?
We don't mind! You may find that your baby cries during part of the massage session. This is completely normal and does not mean that you are doing something wrong or that your baby does not like what you are doing. If your baby begins to cry during the course you are the best judge of whether to finish the massage or continue. Try to identify why your baby is crying by listening to his different cries. If you feel your baby has had enough, try again another day. Remember you are learning about massage together. If you have an active or sensitive baby, then keep sessions short. A little bit of massage works wonders!
What if I miss a session?
If you miss a session, don’t worry we repeat everything each week and you can catch up with anything you are unsure of. If you need extra help, just ask.
What qualifications do you have?
I am fully qualified Baby Massage Instructor accredited through Blossom and Berry. . and fully insured through Westminster Indemnity Insurance.
How do I book?
Have a look at the bookings section and see what class you would like to book onto then either call or e-mail me to book.
Classes are about learning about how you can communicate, soothe and connect with your baby. It is better to do a minute of massage with a happy baby rather than keep up with the session if baby doesn't want to join in. There will be plenty of opportunity to practice later in the course or at home, the classes are taken at the babies pace, as each class is baby led, there is no pressure on you or your baby and you can tend to your babies needs i.e. feeding, nappy changing and giving cuddles when ever you wish to in the class.
