Through a nurturing touch, baby massage provides a loving, fun and positive interaction that nourishes a baby, promoting health and development. It is a holistic, natural way to promote the health of our babies, and can deepen the bonding, improve parenting skills and encourages our little ones to grow up with care and compassion.
Baby massage is known to benefit both mother and baby as babies who are massaged sleep longer and have less colic. Mothers who massage their babies are less likely to suffer from postnatal depression.
We offer a small, friendly local group where each week mums are taught new strokes and all about the benefits of baby massage. The instructor Natalia Ubieta provides a nurturing, supportive group to the mums and gentle calming music is played to help soothe the babies. Natalia Ubieta works as part of the Mum & Baby Clinic at the Centre and can provide much needed support to a mum if she is experiencing any issues with sleeping, feeding, routines, weaning, teething etc as her teams are geared towards helping mums with these types of problems. Guest speakers from the Mum & Baby team often come at the end of the group to talk through any issues mum may be experiencing.
The group is suitable for babies from 6 weeks old and the course lasts 5 weeks and provides a calm and loving environment for mum and baby.
