Our BabyNatal Developmental Baby Massage courses are friendly and supportive 5-week programmes that incorporate song, sign, sensory play and mindfulness alongside development baby massage.
Join us for 5 relaxed sessions in our group classes across Bristol, or book private 1:1 sessions in the comfort of your own home. Parents will be taught a variety of techniques to soothe, calm and relax their babies whilst supporting their babies development. Sleep, digestion, colic, and teething are some of the topics discussed in class enabling new parents to seek any support they may need.
Courses running at Yogafurie in Bishopston on Monday morning, The Skyboat Cafe in Redland on Wednesday afternoons and The Bean Tree Cafe in Staple Hill on Wednesday mornings. We also run Saturday sessions at The Skyboat Cafe and Bean Tree cafe for Dads approximately every 8 weeks.
Our class schedule is flexible – we know how busy life is as a new parent. Just let Anne know if you can’t make a class and we’ll try our best to find an alternative.
Need to join mid-term? No problem. Just email [email protected] and we’ll find a space for you and your baby.
You will learn massage, holds, gentle movement and relaxation to support you and your baby through your ‘fourth trimester’ transition and beyond.
The classes are especially designed to calm, soothe and relax your baby, supporting their natural development.
Classes combine developmental baby massage alongside song, sign and sensory play creating a fun class for you and your baby.
A perfect opportunity for you to bond with your baby and learn useful calming techniques.
You can seek support and guidance around sleep, digestion issues, teething and colic. Meeting other parents in this relaxed group setting can give you a valuable support network.
What massage oil do you recommend? I usually use coconut oil although any natural oil is great. All the massage can be done clothed if you prefer not to use oil on your babies skin.
Can I bring my partner? Of course, just let me know in advance so I can check their is space for an extra person.
Do I need to bring anything? Apart from a Skyboat cafe you will need to bring a mat. You will also need to bring a blanket for baby to lie on and your choice of massage oil.
Can I book on another course of baby massage after completing one course? Of course, its great when parents join for a subsequent course. Once baby is around 5/6 months you can also join my Mum and Baby Yoga course.
Baby Massage courses are suitable from birth to crawling, then you can move on to our Mum and Baby Yoga course!

I’m Anne, a mum of four and a Natal Family antenatal and postnatal practitioner.
Bringing 4 children into the world has been a great challenge and I’m sure will continue to be a learning curve. I adore the baby stage and love meeting parents starting their journey into parenthood.
