Over the two sessions, all the strokes for a full body baby massage will be demonstrated. Massaging your baby brings many benefits. It can soothe an uncomfortable, restless baby or it can be a time for applying emollient creams on a baby with dry skin. It can promote a feeling of wellbeing for the baby and the carer. Massaging your baby focuses on cues, both given to the baby and received from the baby. This can strengthen the connection between baby and carer, as early communication skills begin to form.
The baby massage course will be run by Denise Holland from Baby Connections. She is a local mum and Community Nursery Nurse with Walton’s Health Visiting Team. Denise particularly enjoys the work she carries out with supporting mums and babies in the early weeks, as they get to know each other. She has undertaken extra training, in order to offer this service, independently, from her health care professional role.
