The Women's Pavilion at WCH is excited to offer Infant Massage Classes and the many benefits these techniques have to offer to families. Parents will learn different massage strokes that can help relieve your baby of a variety of discomforts as well as enhance bonding, connection, and attachment. You will also learn what products and oils are safe to use with babies. You will learn to understand your baby's cues and nurturing techniques to respond to those cues. You will be taught an additional way to communicate with your baby through loving touch and massage.
Classes are customizable and are available in a variety of settings: private classes, group sessions, in-person classes, and virtual!
