Tippee Toes Music


Our class structure is designed for carers to fully participate in the class with their child and baby which is an extremely important part of the success of the classes. The more you take part in the music making and movement, the more your child will get out of it. Children learn by imitation and when they see you singing, playing musical instruments and moving to the music they will try to do the same. Website

The Shala - Postnatal Massage

The Shala
After the birth, post-natal massage can provide an invaluable opportunity for mother's to allow time for self-nurture. Ideally, all new mothers would have a massage as soon after birth as possible, to help the muscles release the muscle memory of labour, gently aid healing and help with spinal realignment. These are all important factors in helping your body to return to its pre-pregnancy state. Post-natal massage can be easily done with your baby tucked up beside you, or feeding. Website
