Touching is the first communication a baby receives. The mothers touch both passive and intentional provides for all of babies needs. But intentional touch can be offered by mom or others who are intimately connected to the newborn. Utilizing and integrating the techniques and traditions of baby massage into a newborns daily routine is a historically successful way to enhance bonding, stimulate weight gain and most simply bring joy into your life!
At postpartum visits with you and your baby, I will teach you one to one how to massage your baby. You may learn a stroke or a full massage, or a routine to relieve colicky tummies. As your baby grows and changes I continue to offer ideas and answer your questions to support you. Share what you learn with your partner, siblings and grandparents so they can give baby a massage!
I also offer Infant Massage classes at Ocean Wellness. Please check their calendar for dates.
