Photo Shoot for Active Mum

Monday 8/12/14 at Castleknock Community CEntre, Laurel Lodge, D15

Would you like to get some professional pictures of yourself and your baby for free?

I am looking for some mums and babies to help me get some good images to use for my website, posters etc.  I am booking the community centre room for an hour.  In that time we plan to get some good images of the following:

–        post-natal pilates (with Sinead, the post-natal pilates teacher)
–        mum and baby yoga (with Hilary – classes coming soon)
–        baby massage (with Hilary)

The photographer, Dee Organ will take photos throughout the hour, of Sinead and myself teaching, of you and your baby in different positions as they would be in the classes, and of you and your baby interacting together..  I will be given all the digital images a week or two later, and you are welcome to have copies of any of the pictures that feature you and your baby.

Because I plan on using the images for Active Mum publicity I will ask you to sign a waiver saying that you are happy for me to use the images for that purpose.

 

Who is it suitable for?

Mums with babies aged 6 weeks to 1 year.  Babies aged 7-12 months won’t be suitable for the baby massage pictures, but will still be able to participate in the pilates, yoga and general interaction shots.

If you have a friend who might be interested do pass the details along – you do not need to have been attending classes with Active Mum already in order to join us.

 

Photo Shoot Details

11am – noon on Monday 8/12/14
Castleknock Community Centre
Laurel Lodge Road, Dublin 15

 

Booking

The photo shoot is free, but please let me know if you are coming, as we need only 8-10 mums and babies.  Please contact 0877402236 or lorna@activemum.ie.

Baby Massage in Castleknock, D15 on 3/3/14

baby/ infant massage course

Spend quality time with your baby learning how to give your baby a massage, and meet other local mums for friendship and support.

I will teach you strokes that are safe and appropriate for you to massage your baby, so that you can enjoy it as a regular activity at home.

The massage class which I teach was developed by Vimala McClure who is the founder of the International Association of Infant Massage and is taught all over the world.

You can be sure that you are receiving a quality class as I am accredited by the International Association of Infant Massage and am a member of Baby Massage Ireland. This also means that you can claim back up to €100 off the course cost from your insurance company.

I have a first class degree in psychology and philosophy and a masters in womens’ studies which along with qualifications in counselling skills, first aid, teaching and over 13 years of experience teaching adults means that I am well placed to teach the course.

As a sling consultant I offer help at the end of the class if you are considering getting a baby carrier or sling.

The benefits of baby massage include:

  1. Relief – may help relieve constipation, wind and colic pains.
  2. Relaxation- during the massage and also may help baby sleep better
  3. Stimulation – stimulating the muscles and nerve pathways.
  4. Interaction – great for bonding between the two of you.

You will get a receipt for your payment on the first day of the course, which you can send off to your health insurance company to claim the full or partial cost of the course back.
