Baby massage is a lovely way to get you and your baby smiling. The benefits of skin to skin contact are well documented and in this exclusive Happy Birth Club course, we will teach you techniques that help send baby to sleep, ease colic and wind and help you understand your baby’s cues. It's sociable for the mums and a great way to start your baby's circle of friends for future play-dates!
Taking place at The Little Gym, you’ll also get access to a FREE drop-in ‘Tumble and Tea’ after before our massage sessions from 2.15-3.45pm. Run by the Little Gym team, Tumble & Tea is a supervised developmental play session in the gym. And as always, there’s plenty of tea and coffee throughout!
.Monika has been a nanny for over ten years and is also a fully qualified Infant Massage Instructor. Warm, welcoming and very relaxed, she is the perfect host for our classes. Always punctual and organised, Monika is a dream to work with and helps our new parents in any way she can. Having worked with babies for so long, she understands that they are not robots - sometimes they cry, get hungry or need a nappy change! Nothing fazes Monika and I know you'll love getting to know her.
This course is suitable for babies aged between six weeks and one year old (preferably under six months so they’re less wriggly).
Please bring along a towel you don’t mind getting a little oil on. We provide mats and oil for the massage.
Organic Sunflower Oil with Vitamin E
Yes, absolutely. This session is open to everyone.
As we pay our practitioners per person, I’m afraid we aren’t able to offer refunds on our post-natal sessions.
"Great informative classes in a relaxed environment exactly what we were looking for! Loved all the laughter from our group, who new antenatal could be so much fun! We felt comfortable asking any questions within the class as the environment was relaxed with partners included in conversations. The obstetrician led and the place of birth evenings were very informative and something I could not have found in a book."
"Really informative and done in a relaxed, fun & supportive way. Having spoken to friends who have done NCT, this is streets ahead. Being a first time Mum, all the information thrown at you can be a bit daunting but THBC covers everything you need to know and more without over whelming you and with a lot of laughs along the way. The added bonus of the amazing midwife being on hand is invaluable and was an enormous support to us when I had a few wobbles after the birth."
"Amazing, holistic course covering pregnancy, labour and breastfeeding from all perspectives. Hypnobirthers, reflexologists, aromatherapists, obstetricians, nutritionists and more - honestly something for everyone to learn, from all angles! I cannot tell you how happy our birth was thanks to these classes. A fun, relaxed but informative way to prepare yourself for the most amazing experience of your lives!"
