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.

Class is held at the Bronson Battle Creek Outpatient Center-- conference rooms E/F, on the second level of the outpatient center near the elevators.

Please bring a baby blanket and dress in comfortable, layered clothing.  The room will be warm to help the babies stay warm.  Oil for massage will be provided in class.  Baby dolls will be provided for those who wish to learn infant massage on a doll (i.e., foster, adoptive, pregnant families).

    In these days engagement is a must-have for any organization. No matter what metric you consider, the company with more engaged employees is going to outperform the company with less. So how do we create organizations with high engagement? Plus how do we build high engagement during tough times like low unemployment, restructuring, high turnover and others. Please join us to discuss and learn more about leaders who engage their people during difficult time. Please join HelpNet and special guest speaker Jim Marshall to discuss and learn more about leaders who engage their people during difficult time.
