I often pop into Pavilion Cafe in Dulwich Park - it's the perfect spot to take in the beautiful surroundings and they serve delicious food too.

Jelly Babies Baby Massage

St Hilda's Church
My classes run over 5 consecutive weeks and last around an hour. Each session begins with a relaxation for you and we then focus on a different area of baby's body. We will cover a full body massage for baby and I will demonstrate a Colic Routine. There will be time for discussion after each class and the aim is to spend some quality time bonding with your baby by using a combination of gentle moves, loving, nurturing touch and singing soothing lullabys. The classes are very relaxed and friendly and it's a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and spend some quality one to one time with your baby. Families with babies from newborn to one year are welcome but we also discuss how we can adapt the massage for the growing child, from crawler to teenager. Website
