This three-day intensive short course will give you a qualification in birthlight baby massage. You will also learn a wide range of practices for supporting new mothers and enhancing their interaction with babies aged 0-4 months.
Included are beautiful flowing birthlight baby massage sequences, mini baby yoga moves and early postnatal recovery for new mothers. We look at how to include fathers and other family members and how to create a warm and nurturing atmosphere where relaxed bonding and enjoyment can naturally occur. The course integrates theory with practice and where possible we invite visiting babies to our practical sessions.
The course is open to:
- Health professionals (nursery nurses, health visitors)
- Children centre’s staff (such as Sure Start Staff)
- Qualified Birthlight teachers
- Mothers, through the Mother’s route to Training, conditional to the reading of the anatomy and physiology of infants before attending the course
Students are required to bring a weighted, life-size demonstration doll to the course. They are an essential for teaching baby yoga as part of teaching practice and once qualified. They can be purchased from our online shop just click on 'dolls' in the item menu.
