Birthing / Parenting Class
Over the course of five weeks, parents or caregivers are taught a full massage sequence to support the health of their baby** and to cultivate connection between parent and baby. Parents/caregivers will massage their own baby while the instructor demonstrates on a doll. There are many benefits of infant massage for the parents as well as the infants, including a measurable lowering of stress hormones! Topics such as the benefits of infant massage, learning your baby’s cues, and understanding infant behavioral states are explored through group discussions. Special sequences and techniques to support babies with colic or digestive issues and babies with special needs or sensitivities are also covered.

**Babies 4 weeks to 1 year old. For older babies, private sessions are available.
