Winterbelly Special! Infant Massage training for parents to warm up your baby's bits. Birthtalk! mom's group for you!

We will offer two winter sessions for Infant Massageon Mondays 6-7 pm.

February 28th-March 28th. 

All classes are held at the Birth Rhythms Studio in Oshun House.

Birth Rhythms will give 50% off this class to the first three moms who register before January 20th and include their birth story.

Each Infant Massage class is followed by our 90 minute Birthtalk! session. This group is designed as fun peer support for pregnant and new moms. We discuss a different topic each week and often watch birth and early parenting related videos. It is a drop-in class 7-8:30 pm for only $5. Come whenever you need some adult conversation and support from those who are going through the same phases of life!

I know there are many moms who have expressed an interest in Infant Massage, so I have tracked down an amazing teacher and a course that goes WAY beyond the basics for you. In addition to all the great research about increased mother-baby bonding, infant massage is now proving to be an excellent treatment program for mothers who are suffering from postpartum depression.

This is a hands on class for parents to learn how to safely and therapeutically massage their babies. You may come as a couple or alone with your newborn.

It consists of five 1 hour classes, once a week. Each class has a specific focus and covers a different body routine and concern ie: colic pains, growing pains, teething etc... Sunava will lead the class with a doll, and couples work on their babies.

You will need to bring a small bottle of natural oil( olive, , sunflower, shea butter etc..) If you wouldn't eat it you should not use it on your baby's skin!!

You need a blanket/and a change pad in case baby goes to the bathroom, as they are usually naked from the waist down. A copy of the book Infant Massage, A Handbook for Loving Parents by Vimala Schneider McClure is included in the class price. This is a great book and includes all of the pictures of the routines for the body.

The 5 week class is $150/couple.
