SERVICESInfant Massage & Parenting Consultation
Infant Massage Classes
Learning how to massage your infant will allow you to use nurturing touch to help your child improve relaxation, sleep, digestion, among other benefits. It is a wonderful and loving routine that allows parents and babies to share a positive interaction in their every day routines. In this class you will learn about appropriate oils to massage your infant, best times for massaging, as well as the whole massage routine. I will use a doll to show you how to do each stroke, while you and/or your partner practice those strokes on your baby. As a Certified Infant Massage Instructor I offer Infant Massage Classes in 3 different formats. Find the one that better suits your needs.
1. Private Infant Massage Classes – I will join you in the comfort of your home for a 1-hour class. You can purchase additional classes, as needed.
2. “Mommy Host” – Perhaps you have a lot of friends with babies or would like to meet up with your prenatal class buddies and have a group class with all your babies. This is a fun and more economical way to learn infant massage with people you already know. Pick a house/location and I will meet all of you for a 1-hour class. Additional classes or packages can be purchased too.
3. Community Locations – I also partner up with different locations in different communities and offer 3-week group infant massage classes. These can be held at stores, libraries, gyms, etc. Check our Upcoming Events to find out when/where the next group class will take place, or follow me on social media. These classes are targeted from newborn to age one. Ideal age range is from 1 to 6 months old or pre-crawling.

NEWBORN HOME VISITING
Newborn Home Visiting
As exciting and joyful transition to parenthood can be, it is also a time that comes with many challenges and surprises. After all, babies do not come with an instruction manual.
The Newborn Home Visit is a great way to transition into the new role of parenthood. With the help of expert observation and advice, we can learn together more about your baby. Babies are not all alike. They have their own temperament and develop at their own pace. Let me help you learn more about your baby and discuss topics such as child development, temperament, play, sleep, soothing, etc. You will not get this type of personalized information from any book and you will get the support you and your family needs to transition into this new role and give your baby the best possible start!
The Newborn Home Visit can be scheduled from birth to three months.
If you want more information and want to figure out if this service is right for you, don’t hesitate to contact me for more information.
THE NEWBORN PACKAGE
The Newborn Package
The Newborn Package is a great way to get the best services for your newborn. This package includes 3 home-visits, which include time for both infant massage and newborn consultation, as described in The Newborn Home Visit.
The first three months after birth, also known as the 4th trimester, can be overwhelming. Hormonal changes, sleep deprivation, and adjustment to new roles are a reality when you become a parent. Even if you have family support, it can be very helpful to have a professional come in and see things with a different lens. Let me help you and your family adjust to this new phase of your life.
The Newborn Package is suitable from birth to three months old.

Parent-Child Groups are a great way to get out of the house and socialize with other parents and babies. These groups are great for socializing, getting support, and get more information on child development and play.
These 5 week groups are targeted towards different ages, so you are receiving information that is specific for your child’s age range. We will talk about what to expect at specific age ranges, we will learn and practice different developmentally appropriate play, and we will also have time to discuss topics that are important to you, the parent!
These classes will take place at different community locations. See when the next playgroup is happening HERE.

New parents will get plenty of onesies and baby blankets. Why not give the expecting or new parent in your life an original gift that they will never forget? Give them the gift of a Loving Nest. Set them up with tools that will be helpful in their early stages of parenthood and give them a gift for life.
