Mammas Early Days is a social and educational course. We know that babies at this stage are unable to tolerate lengthy classes and need to feed, sleep and change ad hoc, so the requirement on baby is light and the class is very relaxed. We focus on supporting new parents in navigating the early days of their baby's life, providing a friendly and non-judgemental environment where parents can meet others at the same stage of life, and have somewhere warm and welcoming to come to.
The topics we will cover are:
- Infant sleep
- The fourth trimester
- Post natal recovery
- Baby reflexology and newborn appropriate massage
Mammas Baby Massage is a progressive course where you will learn how to massage a different part of baby's body each week, leading up to being able to complete a full body massage.
We are age appropriate, baby led and responsive to their cues, starting off gently and adding in some sensory time and basic baby yoga moves as the course progresses, when they are able to handle more stimulation.
Baby massage is a fantastic way to bond with your baby while learning to ease symptoms of common baby complaints such as teething, colic and indigestion. It is proven to improve baby sleep, reduce crying and also supports baby's body awareness and integration of their senses.
Mammas Baby Yoga is a lively class incorporating gentle stretching and movement for babies with plenty of songs and some sensory play.
Baby Yoga is age appropriate to support the emerging skills of sitting up and crawling, as well as developing baby's crucial skills including coordination, body awareness, strength, balance and spacial awareness.
Babies of this age love movement. They are discovering themselves as well as other babies and this class aids in introducing them to new sensations and early socialising.
Mammas Sensory Song & Social time does what it says on the tin! At this age babies are little explorers and this class indulges their curiosity for the world with games such as 'What's in the box?' as well as songs, parachutes, twinkly lights, bubbles, puppets and lots more.
The aim at this stage is to stimulate and entertain baby, which will hopefully result in a happy baby, a nice long nap and a break for mum!
