BABY MASSAGE & THRIVING MAMAS COURSE

These sessions provide a nurturing space for you to learn how to massage your baby as well as connecting with other parents and gaining support for your parenting journey

Baby massage is simple to learn, fun to do, and there are many benefits for both parent and baby. You’ll feel close and connected.  You’ll gain confidence to soothe and calm your baby. You’ll be helping boost your baby’s development – brain, nervous system, digestion. Fabulous for calm babies as well as those with wind, constipation and colic. 

Karen will guide you to stretch your own body to relieve tension, to breathe and enjoy a guided meditation to explore the challenges that parenting brings.

While you enjoy a delicious morning tea there is plenty of time to connect with other parents of small babies, to discuss the issues concerning you including sleep, feeding, settling, postpartum emotions, relationships and navigating challenges. You will feel heard, seen and nurtured in these precious sessions with your baby.

With around 30 years of working with families as a mother, friend and childbirth educator, Karen brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to facilitate these sessions. At the centre of all Kate’s care are sensitive and responsive parenting practices that recognise the uniqueness of each baby and parent.

VILLAGE MUMS CONNECT

Find your Tribe

I still remember how much I craved the company of other mothers with new babies after my boys were born.  I wanted to hear that I wasn’t the only one who was tired, overwhelmed, sometimes madly in love and other times feeling desperate.  I wanted to relax and not feel judged.  I wanted to understand why it was so hard having a new baby and just be in the company of women who understood.

That’s why I’ve created Mums Connect, so that you can join us as soon as you wish after the birth of your baby to feel normal and relieved and encouraged and supported, by me and the other mums.  

You can relax.  I’ll look after you and make sure you’re comfortable, and you’ll leave feeling refreshed and a bit lighter, and maybe with a few new ideas to try out.
