Massage allows you and your baby to bond through positive touch, connecting the two of you, allowing you to get to know and understand your baby. It gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your love for your child, giving them a sense of security. As a mother myself I know how important this is.
Your baby learns how to enjoy being touched and understand that you want to communicate with them. Many studies have shown that regular massage can help a baby fall asleep faster and easier, aid their digestion, improve their skin condition, boost their circulation, help develop and grow their muscles and also improve joint flexibility and strength.
It is a fantastic way of supporting your baby's development and by touching your baby you are actively helping your child.
Over 4 weeks we'll build up a nurturing full body baby massage routine you’ll feel confident performing on your child, along with an additional colic routine to help with trapped wind and pain relief. You’ll learn the best time to massage your baby, about permission signals and cues.
The class is a small, friendly and welcoming space. Each session starts with a parent relaxation exercise and a conversation about different aspects about parenthood.
It is suitable from birth to active crawling, though we can always look at developing the routine as your child learns to crawl and becomes a toddler. The earlier you start with Baby Massage the more comfortable they’ll be, and the more that you’ll both gain from taking part.
Don’t just think of the course as being the time you’re in class, you will both get much more out of it by taking the skills that you learn and using them daily.

From the first session, Becca radiated kindness and warmth, an atmosphere that was calming and relaxed. We loved our time there and looked forward to our Thursday mornings. With helpful handouts after each session, I felt empowered to use the techniques at home with my baby. Becca went truly above and beyond to accommodate everyone in class, we felt so looked after. The course helped strengthen my bond with my daughter, she loves being massaged and I love massaging her.
The whole course from start to finish was excellent. It was my favourite part of the week… Becca made it a very enjoyable, safe and relaxing atmosphere. The massage itself has really helped my baby sleep better and it’s a great bonding time for us, I massage him almost daily before bedtime.
A wonderful course for both mom and baby, allowing time for bonding, relaxation and leaving moms with a new, useful skill. Becca was friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her for your baby massage course!
We really enjoyed our Baby massage course with Becca... a great way to bond with my baby. Becca made us feel very comfortable during the sessions and I highly recommend signing up for her classes!
This course was fantastic – it was the right amount of time, and the quality of teaching was superb, as were the materials! Not only have I the benefits of baby massage but successfully completed the course!
Becca’s course was so useful and engaging; I loved learning about the benefits of baby massage and the strokes we learned really help my baby relax and calm her upset tummy too. Becca was highly professional, knowledgeable, flexible to the babies’ needs and just lovely – Becca always made us feel at ease, whatever mood baby was in!
