BABY MASSAGE & NURTURE

Welcome to the amazing and often terrifying journey of early motherhood. It’s bloody miraculous that your baby has found it’s way onto this earthly plane, but it is entirely normal that you may still feel a little lost at sea. My classes are designed to help you and your baby to ride these choppy waters, by sharing, supporting, relaxing, bonding, offloading, laughing, and even crying with other mums sharing in your same boat. The goal of all my sessions is not to “fix” but to to create a healthy and open environment for each of us to “flourish” in the challenges that are a natural part of motherhood.

“The course exceeded my expectations.  I found the massage tremendously therapeutic for me as well as for my baby, and really feel that the engagement and bonding that the massage facilitated has been invaluable to both of us.  She loves her massage sessions and attending the course has given me the confidence to spend time just ‘being’ with her, stroking and talking to her without feeling “I must do the ironing/I must put the dinner on” every time she has a quiet moment!”

“Excellent.  Very relaxed and baby-friendly.  Julie is a very encouraging instructor, completely unphased by tears and tantrums of the little ones, and endlessly patient in teaching us all.  She has a great sense of humour and I was particularly touched by her exceptional kindness to Matilda and I.”
