When does the next course of classes begin?
Classes start every 5 weeks – see “Class dates” above or contact me for details.
How much is a course of classes?

Can I claim for this on my health insurance?
What if my baby has special needs?
It is wonderful that you would consider baby massage for your baby. Please call me to discuss baby’s special needs and whether or not we may need medical clearance. Baby Massage is simply nurturing touch – it is not a treatment so in most cases we should be able to go ahead.
What if my baby is premature?
There are many amazing studies showing the benefits of baby massage in pre term infants. Please call me to discuss your baby and whether or not we may need medical clearance. Baby massage is simply nurturing touch – it is not a treatment so in most cases we should be able to go ahead so that your baby may begin to experience all of the benfits of baby massage.
What if my baby is fostered/adopted?
It is wonderful that you would consider baby massage for you and your baby. One of the primary benefits of baby massage is the promotion of bonding and secure attachment.
Do I need to bring anything to the massage class?
Just bring your usual baby supplies. I will supply mat, towel, oil for you and your baby.
What if my baby is asleep when I arrive?
That’s no problem – class begins with relaxation for the grown ups. If baby is still asleep you can massage a doll until baby wakes. The strokes are repeated each week and you will receive a handout so rest assured you have lots of time to become competent in all of the strokes.
What if my baby needs to feed?
That’s no problem. Classes are baby led so you are free to meet your babies needs.
What if my baby is crying?
Crying is welcome at baby massage. Crying is a babys language. Your baby is probably trying to tell you something! Again classes are baby led and you are free to respond to your baby at all times.
How do I pay?
You can pay for your course of baby massage classes at the first class.
