Massage helps your baby in many ways. It assists digestion, aids in sleep patterns, and helps baby and parents bond. A good time to use this technique is anytime after your healthy newborn is two weeks old. Set up an individualized class, register with a friend, or join in on a group class. $25 per family
We offer this unique class to help big brothers and sisters understand basic ideas surrounding birth and about their mother bringing home a new baby. Begin discussing how things will change before the baby comes home. Discuss what babies are like and their needs. Encourage the child to become involved in the new activities and decide on special times for the older child also. Extra material will be offered for a sibling who is attending a birth. This class can be specially scheduled for your family. $50/family for private classes.
