Description

INFANT MASSAGE FOR PARENTS & CAREGIVERS

Infant massage is a great way to improve bonding and communication between babies and their parents/caregivers, and increase confidence in parenting. It can help reduce stress and depression in both babies and parents. Infant massage has been shown to help regulate babies’ sleep cycles. It can also help with gas, colic and digestion.

This class is for parents or primary caregivers and their babies who are at least two weeks old and haven’t started crawling. Twins and triplets are welcomed.  For families of multiples, please make sure you have one parent/caregiver in class per baby. Some families (such as those who are pregnant, or planning to adopt or foster) may choose to learn infant massage on a baby doll, which will be provided in class.

Medicaid is accepted and financial aid is available.

The class will be held in the basement of the Bronson Gilmore Center for Health Education, Classrooms 3A & 3B
