Baby's hand massage

Every Birth Matters

Baby Massage

Take time to bond and form an amazing attachment with your baby. 

Being touched and caressed,

being massaged, is food for the infant.

Food as necessary as minerals,

Vitamins, and proteins.

Every Birth Matters baby massage course enables new parents to feel supported and empowered in their new parenting role. Over the sessions we build up a variety of rhythmic strokes carefully designed to soothe and calm young babies with the use of organic sunflower oil.

Baby massage is entirely baby led and we follow the babies’ cues to ensure it is an enjoyable experience for you and your baby.

I know becoming a new parent can be overwhelming and often isolating so this one to one service in your own home is relaxing.  I have done baby massage with all of my children and I have loved every minute of being able to just be with them, benefiting their health and well being.  If your baby needs to take a break for a feed or a cuddle, your baby’s needs are always the first priority. In each of the sessions we spend time learning baby massage; using songs and rhymes, as well as understanding the benefits of the massage techniques we are using.
