Baby Massage with VanessaDoula

Introducing Baby Massage with Vanessa

I am now teaching Baby Massage classes after completing my training with Blossom and Berry. I aim to enhance your experience of being a new parent with safe spaces to practice and explore baby massage.

  • During class you will learn strokes to soothe your baby and offer real benefits to their development.

  • You will receive Organic Massage oil (Sunflower seed or Coconut) and handouts you can refer to at home so you can continue the massage at home.

  • Each class will cover different parts of the body and over the weeks will build up to a full routine. By the end of the course you will feel confident and empowered.

  • Every week we will have discussion time to chat over any worries you have. We may discuss issues such as teething, sleep or feeding. Your input will help to build up these session topics so you find the information that you need.

  • You will have time for lots of social connection through chats and cake.

I will be hosting classes at North Merchiston Club starting in April. Please get in touch if you would be interested in joining a class.
