FAQ's - Frequently Asked Questions

What do I​ need to bring to baby massage?

Just a towel, a cushion (we will be sitting on the floor), and the normal things you need for your baby when you go out.


What if my baby has medical needs?

You will need to check with your paediatrician to make sure they are happy for you to massage your baby.  If you have any further queries regarding your baby's medical needs, please get in touch to discuss how I can support you.


How old does my baby need to be?

From 6 weeks to crawling age is the ideal age for baby massage classes.


Can my partner come too?

Yes, partners are very welcome to come along at no extra cost.


Can I bring twins to the class?

Yes, you can learn to massage them both together, or you can bring a second adult.


What if my baby cries or needs to feed?

The sessions are very relaxed and you will not need to change your baby's routine when you attend. Just feed, change or comfort your baby when you need to and massage when they are ready. The class will continue and you can learn the techniques to try on your baby at a later time.


How long are the courses?

Group courses run over either 4 or 6 weeks, with each session lasting 1 hour. About 30- 45mins of this time is spent on massage. Individual courses run over three                   weeks.


Are you DBS checked?

Yes, I am enhanced DBS checked.


Have I left it too late after the birth of my baby for a postnatal massage?

It's never too late, 'once postnatal always postnatal 'is my motto and we will always be happy to massage you at any stage of your mothering journey.

Laura 35 weeks pregnant 


'Just had the most amazing pregnancy massage! When I walked in I was stiff and achey and by the time Sarah had worked her magic I didn't even struggle to bend down and put my shoes back on. I feel so much better; relaxed and energised at the same time. Definately a must.

Rebecca 35 weeks pregnant.


'I had the most amazing pregnancy massage from Sarah before my daughterwas born.  Sarah is very professional and passionate about what she does. It's an added bonus that she is a midwife to, so any worries and concerns she can put your mind at ease.  I was already booked in another one before due date but Imogen had other ideas and came a week early. We can not wait to do the baby massage course. Fully recommend having this massage before birth'
