A typical session:
We always start with a treasured ritual of morning tea as a time to connect with each other and chat. Each session follows a similar rhythm of learning some theory, a brief relaxation before you massage your baby, I demonstrate the weeks massage strokes and techniques and you follow along, then there's some time for discussion and we bring the class to a close. All of this happens while responding to the children as they need you or as they play. You and your baby are welcome in any state, without judgement! We're always in the lounge so it's nice and warm for your little one.
“It’s been wonderful learning about baby massage with Dagmar! My son and I have loved the experience. He recently had his first cold and the face massage helped a lot with his congestion! This course has helped me feel more confident as a mother. Dagmar is a loving person who I’ve enjoyed talking with and getting to know.” - Alice
“My baby is a lot calmer before bed and if she has a tummy ache, it really helps. I loved how Dagmar explained the benefit of each massage technique.” - Khloe
“It was a lovely way of spending time with my son and to learn new ways of calming and relaxing him. He sleeps much better and it's just a nice 5-10 minutes at the end of the day with him. Dagmar was very welcoming, and the morning tea was a lovely start to the course.” - Hannah
