Baby Massage classes in West Sussex

Little Touches is a 5 week course from the International Association of Infant Massage. We focus on learning the ancient art of Infant massage, deepening the bond between you and your baby, learning your baby’s cues and creating a safe space for babies and parents to connect, bond and relax.

Week after week we learn new strokes in the routine, as well as recapping the previously learned strokes to give you the confidence to be able to complete the massage at home with your baby.

Baby Massage is a magical first class to attend with your baby. During our 5 week IAIM course you will learn how to massage your baby, using age old techniques and strokes.

Becoming a new mum, whether it’s for the first time or the 4th time can be daunting, scary and overwhelming at times. Taking time to slow down and connect with your baby is one of the most beneficial things you can do during those early weeks and months.

Coming along to My Baby and Me massage classes provides weekly opportunities for you to connect with your baby through nurturing touch, to learn your baby’s cues and understand what they are telling you, learn the ancient art of Baby Massage and build friendships with other families. Part of our class that parents love the most is our Mother Circle, a time after the massage for babies to sleep or feed and for me to nurture you. I make all the tea’s whilst you chat, discuss the highs and low’s of parenting and support each other.

My class is baby led and there is never an expectation to massage your baby in our circle. I will give you the tools and skills to be confident enough to massage your baby at home at a time that is right for them.
