You will receive receive a bottle of oil at start of course and booklet and certificate at the end. 
This class will be a combination of 25-30mins baby massage and 25-30 mins parenting support discussions by Emma from Morethanmilk, a midwife and IBCLC consultant. 
The topics for discussion at the massage and support class will include feeding, self care and wellbeing, ages and stages of development and postnatal rehabilitation. 

The Nurturing Baby Massages classes follow the Birthlight training. 

They include gentle exercises for parents and babies, often including little rhymes and songs. 
The group classes bring parents of newborns together in a safe and friendly environment, encouraging parents to share their feelings, emotions and experiences without judgement or criticism. In these classes parents are taught how to understand and recognize their baby’s needs and desires by simply playing with and observing their individual baby. 
The classes are relaxed and fun. Parents gain confidence in their parenting skills as they help, and support each other. 

The classes develop over the course to include the following:
