What will you get from coming to my baby massage course?
Baby massage has many benefits for both parent and baby and has been practiced in cultures around the world for hundreds of years. Furthermore, studies from around the world have shown that it reduces post-natal depression and can improve mother/baby relationships.
More than that though, we spend as much time in class having a cuppa and a chat as we do learning the massage. It is so important to be able to meet likeminded people who are also on the maternity leave journey. This is one of the most social classes you will come to!
