POSTNATAL REFLEXOLOGY

Postnatal Reflexology following the birth of your baby is invaluable for balancing, harmonising, enhancing physical and emotional well being.

After labour your entire system will appreciate being balanced back to a non-pregnant state, to help hormones stabilise and help adjust to motherhood. 

Regular treatments at this time can be beneficial to:

  • Nurture the mother, giving you time to relax
  • Ease pain and discomfort
  • Help with post-natal depression 
  • Aid healing after labour
  • Ease constipation
  • Induce sleep
  • Stimulate lactation

Research has shown that reflexology is excellent for maintaining or increasing milk supply enhancing bonding and breastfeeding as well as helping to reduce the effects of post-natal depression. 

Baby is welcome to come along to the treatment for feeding and cuddles or you can come on your own for complete relaxation.

BABY MASSAGE CLASS

Daisy Foundation Tinies baby massage classes are specially designed to be perfectly suited to your child’s age and developmental requirements. Below are the five elements that are fundamental guiding principals for the baby massage classes.

CALMING AND SOOTHING METHODS

In addition to the calming and soothing benefits of massage in each daisy class, you will also learn an additional repertoire of calming and soothing techniques, which will become a toolkit for you to use anywhere when needed. With the positive connection, awareness and understanding of your baby’s cues and your natural use of positive touch and movement, you are able to respond to your baby’s needs long before they become distressed. Teachers will share with you methods of calming which respond to all of your baby’s senses and needs, allowing you to find the methods that are right for you and baby at any given moment. You will find these new skills valuable perhaps during evening bouts of colic, comforting fussy babies or to ease the impact of cluster feeding. They will often become firm favourites at bedtime as you help your baby ease off to sleep. For our little Tinies, the re-creation of the rhythm, noise, comfort and security of the womb will help them in their transition from womb to the room. For our older Wrigglers as their communication changes, you will learn how to adapt these methods to suit their changing personality as they reach the different physical and mental developmental milestones

DAISY WRIGGLERS BABY YOGA CLASS

Suitable from approximately 20 weeks old.

WHAT HAPPENS IN DAISY WRIGGLERS BABY YOGA CLASS?

The baby yoga classes from the Daisy Foundation are perfect for little ones aged 5+ months. They combine education, baby yoga, support and you get to meet other mums (probably from the same area as you) who have babies about the same age as yours.

Daisy believes in positive touch and movement through massage and yoga being a natural activity between mum and baby rather than a formal routine to be completed. These methods of verbal and non-verbal communication help mum to understand baby’s behaviours, cries and language so that baby feels loved, valued and respected. Positive touch and movement between mum and baby helps nurture positive attachment, bonding, closeness and confidence to respond to your baby’s cues and needs.
