Course Details

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.

Course Details

A focal point in every class is our “What’s in the box?!” section where babies discover our theme for the week and we begin our sensory journey.
              Babies enjoy plenty of opportunity for free play in our social baby time, to discover the sensory theme for the week, based on our collaboration with Usborne Books, using their popular “That’s Not My…” series (including bubbles, lights, balls, scarves, ribbons and so much more!).
               Our highly trained yoga teacher will take you through fun baby yoga songs and routines, helping baby to stretch, relax and have lots of fun. Gentle baby yoga stretching has a host of benefits for baby and each class will go through all of these benefits for each move.
               There will be opportunity for baby to play in their own way, to interact with all the other babies and of course for adults to chat too. There is always time for education on infant development, feeding queries, sleep and any other concerns. This friendly class draws on peer support alongside highly trained teachers.
               Classes are designed to encourage the development of hand and eye co-ordination, fine and gross motor skills, speech, listening, visual development, play and laughter.

A fun and sociable babywearing dance class for all abilities. Suitable for those with babies from around 8 weeks (12 weeks post caesarean delivery).

Client feedback

I’ve just completed my first term of Tinies and have loved the chance to learn some baby massage and meet other local mums. Jilly is a great teacher and the classes have a lovely relaxed feel – I would definitely recommend and I’ll be returning for more classes.

Jilly has a talent for creating a really welcoming, friendly and safe space which is great for mums and babies alike. The classes are informative and fun, yet relaxed, and centrered around the babies, so it’s fine if one is crying, another is asleep and one is having a nappy change!

There is plenty of opportunity to talk with other mums during the class too. Jilly is amazing at what she does and has such a nurturing and natural manner with the babies. I would definitely recommend!

I have made some fab friends. We have a WhatsApp group where we share all the great, gross, up and downs of parenting. As well as just being friends who are there for each other when we need it. It’s been an awesome place for us all to make new and lifelong friendships. Without Jilly, I don’t think that would of happened.
