FAQ's - Frequently Asked Questions

What do I​ need to bring?

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.


Can my partner come too?

Can I bring twins to the class?

Yes, you can learn to massage them both together, or you can bring a second adult but this would be classed as two bookings.


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 nned 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.

What parents say.....

'Really enjoyable class. Sarah was fantastic and so patient, understanding and really passionate about the techniques, and seeing the babies progress/interact. Thank you so much we loved it'

Vicky (mother to 12 week old Elliot)


'It was lovely to spend time with my baby learning different massages and how they help with different things. It was also lovely to speak to other mum's with babies'

Gemma (mother to 9 week old Maisie)


"I really do recommend 'sootheababy' massages with Sarah Syms!   Calobe struggles with sleeping, breathing, headaches and sickness...we've just had our first session and he's fallen asleep within 5 minutes of Sarah leaving after finishing! He's fallen asleep much easier than he ever has before, he's not as jumpiy and his breathing is much clearer!! 
Thank you Sarah :) "
