Frequently asked questions
What if my baby arrives or I'm unwell and I can't make my massage appointment?
Feel free to book your massage with confidence, as we have a no charge cancellation policy. We will check with you via text to confirm your appointment the day before.
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.
What do I need for my home massage appointment?
We will bring everything for your appointment and will just require a space to set up the couch, preferably downstairs.
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?
Babies can be safely massaged from birth, but 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.
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.
Can I bring twins to the class?
Yes, you can learn to massage them both together, or you can bring a second adult.

When practising with your baby, never rush or force anything. If you feel stressed or tense, just take a break and come back to the practice later. Always ensure that you feel safe, secure and confident with the way you are holding or working with your baby. Never do anything that you do not feel comfortable with.
If your baby is unwell, it is best not to attend the massage class. If your baby is crying excessively and cannot be comforted, he/she may be ill.

It is not recommended to practice in the 24 hours following your baby’s immunisations.
