Baby Massage

Spend quality time with your baby. Learn how to give your baby a massage. Meet other local mums for friendship and support.
I will teach you strokes that are safe and appropriate for your baby. You can then enjoy it as a regular activity at home together. The classes are relaxed and give plenty of opportunity for you to get to know the other local mums in the class. I am qualified through Baby Massage Ireland and is affiliated with the International Association of Infant Massage, which means that you can claim back up to 100% of the course cost from your health insurance.
