About the courses
Parents who come to our 5-week courses learn much more than confidently massaging their baby in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
At flourishing baby you will be carefully guided through each stroke whilst also learning to recognise your baby’s feedback, thus growing in confidence, observation and relaxation, three important ingredients for you to create the happy and serene environment for your baby to flourish.
In our classes, only you massage your baby whilst the instructor demonstrates on a doll. We ask permission from the babies before massaging and always follow their cues. This helps develop communication between you and your baby, as well as feelings such as trust and respect.
Our classes are baby-led, so if your baby falls asleep or needs a feed, a nappy change, or is having a tearful moment, it is all fine! you will be given your space to attend these needs and will be offered the possibility to practice on a special doll, so you do not miss anything. Furthermore, there will be many opportunities to catch up, as strokes are reviewed each week and handouts are given as a reminder.
Flourishing baby follows the comprehensive IAIM curriculum, which covers touch, movement, relaxation, interaction and communication, plus the special colic routine.
Groups are kept small and friendly and include time for informal parent discussion where you can exchange ideas and experiences.
