Patchwork offer blocks of Baby Massage to help parents and carers bond with their babies and meet other people with babies of similar age, within our community. Our blocks not only involve learning a comprehensive baby massage routine, as structured by the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) but also include topical information time and discussion sessions which allow parents to share their experiences. The block encourages parents and carers to communicate with their babies and to promote nurturing touch within the relationship, we also strive to promote a peer support nature to the group.
Our blocks run for 5 weeks, classes are held on a Thursday, in the main room at the Pennypit centre. We offer a subsidized cost for our course, paying only £25 for the five weeks. We also run a crèche alongside this class, which can be used if you have an older preschool child as well as your baby. Classes are held in Prestonpans but are available to everyone within the health cluster; Prestonpans and Port Seton out to Longniddry.
Booking must be done in advance to attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place on our next available course.
