Baby massage is a lovely way to spend time with your baby, and a great way to connect with other parents. Research shows baby massage also may help improve your baby's sleep, help you communicate better with your baby and help with the symptoms of wind and constipation.
Over the five sessions you'll learn a series of strokes to massage your baby from head to toe.
