Each Baby Massage Cubs class includes a dedicated baby massage segment, purposefully kept to a portion of the class to avoid over stimulation.
As well as the well known benefits of massage, such as relief from colic, wind, constipation and teething discomfort, our techniques also provide longer term benefits such as secure attachment, reducing emotional distress, improved co-ordination, physical development, body awareness and brain development.
There will be plenty of opportunity to move, play and bond with baby in a gentle, calming class; all whilst helping baby gently integrate themselves with the world.
You will learn a repertoire of calming and soothing techniques, which will become a tool kit for you to use anywhere when needed.
Each week there will be time to explore different important topics such as babywearing (Jilly is a qualified babywearing consultant), baby sleep, baby development, feeding discussions, starting solids education and postnatal recoery.
You will also benefit from movement, core engagement, gentle stretches and awareness of posture whilst you focus on your baby. Our gentle movements, with baby, can ease symptoms such as the physical effects of feeding and holding baby, improve tone of the pelvic floor, gently knit back together the abs and bring balance and alignment back in to the spine and body.
Our classes run in Welwyn and Welwyn Garden City – perfect for those in Stevenage, Knebworth, Hatfield, Wheathampstead, Brookmans Park or Potters Bar.
