This is a group class of up to 8 parents/carers. Together you will learn how to do full body massage, as well as special techniques that will help your baby if they suffer from a specific condition such as colic, constipation or wind.
The 5 week First Touch Program can also be taught in private sessions in the comfort of your own home anywhere in the Southern Highlands, NSW.
Mimi Infant Massage is happy to arrange courses at a time and location convenient to your mothers groups, playgroup or friendship group. Please contact us for more details.
Mimi Infant Massage Instruction courses are for parents and carers of children aged from birth to 12 months and are delivered by a fully-trained instructor.
Baby massage helps you and your child gently and happily transition in to their new world by surrounding them with gentle touch, rhythm, smells and sounds of comfort.
Not only will you learn how to confidently use massage and touch, but you will also gain confidence in using your voice, movement and other forms of communication to help soothe, settle and communicate with your little one.
Our baby massage course helps to promote a healthy relationship between baby and parent/carer, establishing trust during the special bonding and attachment process.
The aim of The First Touch Program is to support and promote the development of healthy, secure attachment relationships between parents and their baby.
The First Touch Program is identified by medical researchers as the 'Gold Standard' and highest quality program of its kind. The First Touch Program is the only one of its kind in Australia that has been extensively researched. The First Touch Program has a number of key elements that are brought together into a low-cost, evidence-informed and effective program to support early relationships between babies and families.
• healthy touch
• cue recognition
• other interactions
The courses are held in an intimate group setting of no more than 8 families in a relaxed and friendly environment.
The course is designed to support you, as an individual, to use and adapt healthy touch and other types of interaction in ways that suit your own parenting style and choices, as well as the unique (and often changing) needs of your individual baby.
Together you will learn how to do full body massage, as well as special techniques that will help your baby if they suffer from a specific condition (such as colic, constipation or wind).
You will learn how to correctly massage the legs and feet while enjoying a sprinkling of topics and discussions.
Some people prefer to have intimate sessions with their baby and instructor in the comfort of your own home.
If you have a group of carers that would like to learn Infant Massage, or you can not find a course time or location to suite, please get in touch and Linda will co-ordinate a convenient time and location for you.
A truly special gift for a new parent or carer.
Vouchers can be purchased for the 5 week First Touch or the one-off Touch and See group or private sessions.
Bonus Gift: I now offer a wonderful bonus gift of a year's subscription to Headspace Mindfulness valued at $150 for parents/carers who complete one of my programs and provide feedback via a survey link which I will happily provide to you.
Mulungi Infant massage (MIMI) was fabulous. I was at my wits end when I made the initial phone call to Linda. The whole experience was liberating, from the first call to the end of the sessions. Zoe loved it and the more we practiced the more relaxed we both were. It helped with everything from her reflux to her general well being. We practiced mostly everyday and my older child often jumped in for a bit of ‘welaxing’ too. Linda, I cant thank you enough and I can’t recommend it enough to everyone with a baby.
Linda gave me a warm welcome, Roan was very happy to have the one on one time with mum and it’s great to know baby massage
I took up Linda’s offer from MIMI Infant Massage to learn the First Touch Program to see if massage could help Amelia relax about being touched and stroked. Amelia could cope with some skin contact but soon let me know to stop quickly. During the program, I was able to see which parts of Amelia’s body she would allow to be stroked and which to leave and come back to later. I learned her non verbal communication cues which were so helpful. I continued on and practiced what Linda had taught me. Thank you so much Linda. I highly recommend learning the First Touch Program, the classes were relaxed, gave me information with handouts and above all, Amelia likes her body!
