Infant Massage Workshop for Birth & Postpartum Professionals

Infant massage is a tool that every doula, newborn care specialist and nanny needs to know.

This infant massage workshop goes beyond any book or YouTube video. It is seven hours of hands-on practical experience, real conversation and teaching moments, not only for you but also for your clients.

When we look to build relationships with infants, infant massage is always suggested. It’s especially helpful as a means of building bonds between an infant and their secondary caregiver. Some of the most exciting aspects of infant massage are its impact on baby’s sensory development and brain development. Infant massage also benefits baby’s immune system, physical development, and communication skills.
