Baby Massage brought to you in the comfort of your own home!

We may be on lockdown, socially distancing to keep ourselves safe and well. But part of our well being includes social interaction, making friends and sharing our experiences. Unfortunately, at the moment, we can’t do that face to face in person. But we can do the next best thing.

Baby Massage brought direct to you on line via Zoom. Zoom is a simple app for your phone, tablet, laptop or computer. It allows us to still hold classes face to face but in a secure virtual space. Everyone can see and hear each other, we can still learn, laugh, smile and gain the all important social contact that you and your babies need.

We have 2 courses starting Thursday 23rd April to 10am and 1.30pm. Our normal booking procedures and allocation process will apply. To apply for a place on one of the courses please complete our application form. You will be notified by text on Monday 20th April to confirm your place.

We have a very limited number of places on each course. To apply please complete the booking form below.
