Womb to World Newborn Nurture is a 90 minutes baby massage session, in the comfort of your own home, designed to provide parents of babies aged newborn to eight weeks, or expecting parents, with wonderful techniques for bonding, soothing and settling your baby right from day one.

Most group massage classes take babies from 8 weeks, however I am able to offer you guidance on gentle touch and massage that can be used right from birth. These sessions support the early days of parenthood as they particularly focus on the emotional and attachment needs of your baby in the first 3 months and how to read your baby’s cues in order to be a responsive, nurturing parent.

We explore the amazing benefits of skin to skin, kangaroo care, still touch, settling holds, and simple massage and yoga for very young babies. I also cover advice and tips for soothing colic, promoting sleep, swaddling and the importance of tummy time and other key areas of developmental play.

These sessions are designed to help you to help your baby to adjust to life outside of the womb, which has benefits for your baby and for yourself. We will cover in depth the importance of the ‘Fourth trimester’ and what to expect in terms of how both you and your baby are biological wired to respond and connect with each other to ensure both your happiness and wellbeing, growth and development. See my blog on Fourth Trimester Care for more insight. A big part of this session will also look at self-care and self-love for mothers and fathers, and how beneficial this is for the whole family unit.

One to one sessions at home are particularly beneficial to newborns and parents, as it keeps the environment less overwhelming, and parents do not have the worry of a car journey with a very young baby. I can however also offer this lovely session as a small group workshop, such as for friends, NCT groups or other antenatal groups. I do have a limit on my travel outside of my base in Colchester, Essex, but please do contact me directly for information or booking via my Facebook page or online contact form.

BABY PLAY WITH LOVE AND YOGA♡  (from 4 weeks)

  • Also available as two part private workshops for age specific play and yoga (max 5 parents and babies)

These sessions explore “brain-building” by teaching you easy, fun and age- appropriate play activities to do with your baby at home, which boosts their brain development, physical development, language development, as well as supporting parent-baby attunement, bonding, love, connection and the power of touch.

These sessions contain carefully selected sensory and play activities, and teaches invaluable knowledge to empower you to understand your babies development needs. The opportunities you have to support your baby now does not only benefit them during infancy, but lays the foundations for school readiness and beyond.

You will learn some of the key components for fun, health promoting play, learn about the baby equipment to enjoy and those to avoid, as well as learning and experiencing the amazing benefits of baby yoga. The use of asanas (postures) in baby yoga has the benefits of improving circulation, aiding digestion, supporting weight gain, promoting brain to body connections and so much more. It allows babies to experience a variety of movements, promoting their body awareness and understanding of their body being separate frrom that of the mother. It supports later milestones and development by encouraging babies to MOVE and build their brain connections.

As a registered and insured health professional, I am able to answer any specific questions you may have regarding aspects of your baby’s development and advise you should you have any queries or concerns.

These workshops will be made up of just four mums/dads (multiples babies also welcomed) so that I am able to give tailored advice as and when it may arise. Workshops will be split into age specific groups for babies 4 weeks – 12 weeks, and babies from 12 weeks to sitting.

These workshops may also be booked for small groups such as NCT antenatal groups, or small groups of friends, or as a one to one session in your own home for 90 minutes.

  • Explore some traditional indian techniques for winding baby
  • Feel more empowered as a parent to soothe and settle your baby
  • Available as a one off 60 minute session in the comfort of your own home

These sessions work specifically on supporting babies with tummy troubles, such as trapped wind, constipation, and general tummy discomfort. This one to one session supports you to feel more empowered to respond to your baby in a gentle, nurturing way whilst working to ease some of the symptoms associated with colic and/or trapped wind and tummy trouble. Colic is defined by the NHS as the “name for excessive, frequent crying in a baby who appears to be otherwise healthy. It’s a common problem that affects up to one in five babies”.  It can include excessive crying bouts, particularly late afternoon and early evening, baby drawing knees up to tummy, arching back, and/or clenching fists, grunting, generally very unsettled and uncomfortable. Often these symptoms are linked to digestive discomfort due to baby’s immature digestive system, and also overstimulation.

During this one to one, you will learn a lovely remedial Baby Soothe and Settle ♡ routine to specifically work on your baby’s digestion, trapped wind, and any associated discomfort which will help to soothe and settle your baby. These sessions take place in the comfort of your own home and we can tailor the advice to your baby. Please contact me via my Facebook page or the online contact form to book a session.

ALL babies are welcome to my workshops, so should your baby have any additional needs, or have had a difficult start in life then please do come along. I have years of experience working with ex prem babies, and babies with physical and neurological delays and/or impairments. I also plan to run workshops aiming specifically at babies with developmental delays. These will be Baby Play with Love and Miracles ♡

 

"Love and touch builds your baby's brain." -Blossom and Berry

"Touch is a pool babies could bathe in all day; skin to skin contact is a puddle to jump in and out of. Both are rivers of love and joy and both can help your baby and 
child heal from emotional wounds" -Robin Grille
