Baby Massage @HQ

From: £12.00

Classes are suitable for babies from 6 weeks old (provided they have had their 6 week HV check & have no headlag) up to 2 years. Although Developmental Baby Massage can benefit babies up to the standing/walking stage, it’s best to note that classes are best suited to babies who are not crawling yet.

With Chloe Westmore: Tuesday mornings 10-11.30am

If you’d like to book the class as a group of 6 or more please book a private group session.  If there are less than 6 adults in your group please email hello@doitlikeamother.co.uk

 

Booking essential by 9:30am on the day of the session

You can also choose to buy a six or ten session block for a discounted rate.

 

Due to the changing nature of the guidelines regarding COVID-19, if for any reason we’re unable to run the class in-person, once you’ve made a booking for an in-person class, your booking will be moved to the online version or postponed to the next available in-person class.  The option for a refund will be available in extenuating circumstances and upon request.
