Becoming a mum is a very joyous but also stressful time; you can feel like you’re stuck in a cycle of endless nappy changes, feeding and trying to soothe cry’s. Baby massage enables you to have some wonderful one on one time with your precious little bundle, in a relaxed and calm atmosphere. When I do baby massage with my youngest daughter, Daisy looks all gooey at me and connects right into my eyes, I could just burst with love, every mom should experience that.

We run baby massage classes at Tesco Extra, Foxoak Street, Cradley Heath and Barnetts Hill Garden Centre Nr Hagley. We keep our group classes small therefore keeping a friendly, relaxed and cosy environment which enables mom’s and babies to get to know each other better, it’s lovely to watch the relationship of the babies grow over the five week period as they enjoying watching each other and having a little flirt! It’s always a little sad when a course comes to the end as the group have enjoyed their time together. Both venues have on site cafe's giving the the space and opportunity to relax and make new friends!
Angelic Little Ones also offer one to one tuition in the comfort of your own home, or if there’s a group of friends, why not host a baby massage course from the comfort of your own home. We provide a bottle of oil for massage and a booklet containing baby health safety, all massage moves including illustrations and the songs we sing during the classes for you to keep at home for reference.
You can book onto a course online via https://www.facebook.com/ALObabymassageandyoga/
Baby Massage Reviews:
“I took my son Noah to Susie’s classes and we thoroughly enjoyed all the sessions! Noah was quite unsure at first but Susie was very supportive and we talked through different ways to encourage him. He now loves our massage sessions! He always had problems with constipation, but massage really helps, Susie showed me which techniques to focus on and I can now help him ‘go’ if he’s struggling, which stops me from feeling so helpless. A really lovely class that I would recommend to everyone”
