WHAT TO EXPECT

The course consists of 5 x 90 minute classes in which we will learn the full baby massage and special colic routine, we will do this consecutively over a five week period. We will also talk about how we can adapt massage as your baby grows up- massage is not only for babies but can be adapted throughout a person’s life forever! 

During each class we will do some relaxation techniques for yourselves in order to help you and baby feel calm and relaxed throughout the massage/ class. We will also allow time for discussion and sharing ideas with a nice warming cup of tea or coffee!


A necessity if you ask me!

AND REMEMBER

  • Do not worry if your baby does not want to participate or if they need to sleep, feed, or have their nappy changed at any time throughout the class! This is all normal and OK. 

  • Some babies have slept through the entire session- remember this is also YOUR time and a chance for you to learn the massage techniques to be able to do them in the comfort of your own home, in your own surroundings and when your baby needs you or to be reassured.

"Cheryl is superb and her love for what she does comes through in abundance.
I wish the sessions could be ongoing as that time every week is so relaxing. Not only for my baby girl but also me.
It wasn't clicky at all (which can often be the case at baby classes) and I felt relaxed week on week going to the sessions.

I have already recommended Cheryl and her sessions to others in my NCT group and expectant friends. I would not hesitate to recommend Cheryl to others either"

"As a first time mum, I had the most wonderful time bonding with my son at mother nurture baby massage. He enjoyed each class and was always so relaxed afterwards, he even smiled for the first time during class and we made some wonderful memories. Cheryl was so encouraging and supportive throughout the course, and even provided excellent after care of advice and continuous guidance, ensuring I continued to carry it out successfully from home. This experience is a must for all mums!"

A Little About Myself

My Experience

Having worked in childcare for over 18 years as an educational play and learn EYFS nanny and in the superb play and learn centre that is Gymboree, Leamington Spa, I have learned a huge amount about nurturing at the key stage levels of development which I believe in these early years to be so important to help set the foundations for the rest of their precious lives. 

This lead me on to training in baby massage with the IAIM ( International Association of Infant Massage ) which is a


“global organisation and world- class standard for the training and teaching of baby massage. It consists of tens of thousands of people from around the world, who are passionate about ensuring that every baby receives nurturing touch as a fundamental human right” 

The IAIM uses four different styles of massage- Indian massage, Swedish massage, reflexology and gentle movements, during the five week course I will describe the benefits of each of these techniques.

Training to become a baby massage instructor has had a profound effect on me as an adult and I have come to the realisation that as our skin is the largest organ it is no wonder it has such an impact on us when we are nurtured, touched or massaged both as a baby and as an adult! It releases happy hormones known as Oxytocin and has such incredible benefits. 

My main focus and aim is to help parent's feel loved, supported, valued and honoured in their role whilst nurturing their own holistic well-being at the same time as their baby's. 

During each class we focus on breathing and relaxation techniques for parent's before we begin the beautiful bonding experience of the massage whilst always listening to babies cues. 

Please feel free to contact me for further information about the course and what to expect.
