Mother & Baby Massage Session - Part 1 (babies less than 3 months)
During a Mother & Baby Massage Session, we look at containment and helping your baby relax into his/her new environment. Babies in the first few weeks of life are overstimulated by their environment and the amount of handling that takes place. We personally do not advise mothers with babies in the first 3 months to take part in a programme that entails a full body routine. Instead we devise a programme that will be tailored to your babies’ individual needs.
The session is split between you and your baby, and lasts 60 minutes; 45 minutes Postnatal Massage for you and, a 15 minute Baby Massage. This runs throughout 2 sessions over 2 hours. For more information click here
