Becoming a new parent can be challenging. So wouldn’t it be great if you could learn how to massage your baby creating a deeper bond and enriching your relationship with your baby?
5 Reasons to have Baby Massage
By learning to massage your baby, you are helping your baby to learn about respect, caring and love. Both you and your baby will benefit equally from giving and receiving massage, especially as your baby maybe struggling to adapt to life outside the womb.
Bonding with your baby is not always an easy period and can sometimes be a stressful time for both you and your baby.
Baby Massage is a powerful sensory therapy that provides a range of psychosocial and physiological benefits from birth to childhood.
