Baby Massage

Learn the art of baby massage, a wonderful way to enhance bonding and communication with your baby, alongside promoting health and wellbeing.

Baby massage gently soothes your baby while improving sleep, colic and tummy upsets. With loving touch you can improve and support physical and social development, while enjoying time with your baby.

  • Improves sleep
  • Enhances bonding
  • Relieves stress and tension
  • Supports development of the nervous, circulatory and gastrointestinal systems
  • Increases muscle tone and motor skills

Our baby massage course runs for 5 weeks, slowly introducing new strokes each week. This gentle introduction enhances the experience of massage for both your baby and you and allows time to get to know other parents and discuss topics relevant to parenting and massage.

Cost $70.00

“The baby massage course with Simone was invaluable.  She taught with passion, clarity, warmth and humour.  I left having the confidence to massage my baby at home and having met some lovely new friends.  I would highly recommend this to anyone.  Thank you so much Simone for sharing your extensive knowledge and passion for baby massage with us.” Candice

The Maternal Journey baby massage course was fantastic.  We loved the respectful approach to both mums and babies and so appreciated the relaxed baby friendly and baby centred space in our busy lives.  Simone is very warm, generous and knowledgeable.  One of the best facilitators I’ve experienced.  As a mum I found the skills I developed empowered me more as a mother and my baby certainly enjoyed it!  I could not recommend this course highly enough!”  Sasha

“Absolutely loved the baby massage course.  It not only helped let me connect with my baby but to meet other women and share experiences, allowing me to feel like I was not the only one going through a massive learning curve on my own.  My daughter really loves massage, it is part of our every day bath routine.  I definitely recommend it!”  Katrina
