Esther Jane Thompson, retired midwife and certified Infant Massage Instructor, invites you to join her for an afternoon to learn the basic Baby Massage strokes, benefiting new Mums and Dads and their babies from birth up to crawling.

What to expect

This is a hands-on workshop and includes lullaby singing, reading to your babies, and relaxation methods. You will learn the important ways to understand your babies’ cues.

What are the benefits?

Baby Massage can help with sleep and colic when practised regularly, as well as promoting bonding and attachment.

This is a safe and welcoming space, and Esther is on hand for any questions or worries you may have.

Each family will be provided with massage oil to take home.
