Connecting parents, carers & babies

Baby-led by an experienced professional

One can read numerous articles about the benefits of baby massage, and I can attest to them all.

I have seen under-confident, new parents learn to relax and flow with their babies. For me the key is about being in tune with yourself as a parent/caregiver and listening to your instincts;

after all this is your baby and you know what is best for your child.

Benefits of massage for your baby (and you) ......Helps to strengthen bonding with caregivers | Regular massage can soothe your baby and help them sleep better | Stretches and relaxes abdominal muscles and lifts diaphragm - helping to relieve colic/constipation | Allows baby to strengthen back and neck - through pushing up/swimming motions .........
