Baby Massage

We offer antenatal, postnatal, baby massage and stay and play sessions. Baby yoga will be arriving early in 2022. Belle’s Babies offers group classes, 1-2-1 sessions (virtually or physically) and in the future will be offering drop in social sessions for those who have attended a baby massage course.
Our group sessions are suitable from new born onwards and if needed can be adapted to suit movers.  1-2-1 sessions are suitable for all ages and needs of children and can be adapted to suit individual needs. 1-2-1 sessions can be held at your home or virtually via video call.

Classes are run as a 6 week course covering all aspects of baby massage. Sessions 1-4 cover each area of the body separately with a recap of the previous week. Session 5 is a full run through of the baby massage covering all areas. Session 6 is used as a recap week and social session where we also explore mental well-being of parents and each parent/carer is given a parent well-being pack.
All classes are provided with a starter pack which includes important documents to complete prior to the course, information on what to expect, information on what you need to bring and a free bottle of massage oil to be used in classes and at home.

You will also get access to support from your instructor to ask questions when needed outside classes, including a free video call to support you at home if you require additional support. In addition you can join the closed Facebook group for digital copies of handouts, refresher videos and support.
