Touch is the first sensation a baby develops in the womb and establishes the
nurturing communication between mother and child. When a baby is born, his vision is still fuzzy,
but touch is highly developed and is a primary way he can make sense of the world.
Baby Massage is scientifically proven as a simple, cheap and effective technique for supporting an infant's development.
Babies who receive regular touch, thrive physically, cognitively and emotionally.
Massaged babies gain more weight, show increased motor skills and neurological development.
They have stronger immune systems, cry less, have lower stress hormones and sleep better.
Baby Massage is also effective in establishing the mother-baby attachment.
Mothers are happier, less stressed and more attuned to their baby's needs.
As a qualified Occupational Therapist, Registered Nurse, Midwife and mother of three,
I encourage you to embrace the opportunity to connect, communicate and nurture your precious little one,
by learning the techniques and benefits of Baby Massage.
Bonding that will last a lifetime.
