This question was asked at our October live Q&A session for To Baby and Beyond students past and present. Other questions that were asked are listed below.
Generally it is fine for all babies to be massaged from birth but they often cope better in a class situation from around 5-6 weeks. However, any baby taking part in a baby yoga class must have had their 6-8 weeks check, even if that has been delayed for any reason. It is important, therefore, for parents to have signed any declaration to this end, so that instructors are covered for insurance purposes.
Other questions asked at our October Q&A session include:
- How are classes going for everyone in this time of Covid, including running classes by Zoom etc?
- Do people provide handouts for parents in baby massage classes?
- Why is it not appropriate to massage baby after they’ve been immunised?
- What length of baby massage course do parents [and instructors] find to be the most appealing and effective? Do pay as you go classes work for people?
- Is there any training available for those wishing to teach baby massage with twins or other multiples?
- Do people run classes specifically for dads and are they popular?
