Baby massage has a number of benefits. Not only is it a lovely way to spend time with your baby and bond with them, it allows you to become more confident in handling your little one and better at recognising their needs. It’s a fun and easy way to support your baby’s physical development, strength and stamina, as well as help improve baby’s sleep. And we’ve partnered with Martina from Mummy Care. to bring you another three-week virtual Baby Massage Course.
You’ll learn a developmental routine as well as specific strokes and techniques to help with congestion, colic, wind and constipation. The course is completely baby-led, so if your little one isn’t in the mood to join in, you can still watch and learn and implement the routine in your own time.
Classes are suitable for babies once they have had their six week check up to pre-crawling.
““It was great! Martina had a great relaxing vibe. Loved that she sent us the mummy care pack with all the info to apply what we learnt with confidence (and a lovely handwritten note).
“The Pachamama Baby Massage course with Martina from Mummy Care was brilliant – my husband and I learnt simple but effective moves to connect with my baby on a whole other level, and with some colic-remedy moves as a bonus! Our daughter isn’t even two months old yet but some of the massage moves have already made her gurgle and smile, so they are a definite keeper. Not sure if I’ll use the sunshine or pizza massage the most, but either way this course was a wonderful investment (it was actually a present, and one I recommend for new mamas because I may have overlooked it, but am SO glad I now have this extra knowledge/tool under my mama belt!).
“As with all the Pachamama content I’ve seen so far, the Baby Massage course was brilliant! Martina is lovely, very knowledgeable and engaging – and patient!”

WHAT YOU NEED FOR EACH SESSION:
- A mat or large towel for your little one to lie on (on the floor is preferable, but whatever makes you and baby most comfortable)
