Past Event

Intuitive Baby Massage Course with Jane Tetley

Enhancing parent and infant wellbeing through massage

Baby massage is a gentle way for parents and their infants to connect and to gain from all the benefits if has to offer.

About Jane

I am an Infant Massage Instructor and a Nurse with a background in Midwifery and Child Health and have worked with families over many years in varied settings. I believe that by nurturing and supporting parents and encouraging then to trust their own intuitive ability to parent they are then better able to nurture and support their infants.

The course runs an hour a week for four weeks. Each week builds on the content from the previous week and by the end of the course you will feel confident with the various techniques.
