After the experience of birth, its time for you to develop a connection with baby in a different way. Infant massage has huge benefits for mum, dad and your little one. Touch is a very powerful element in human bonding, as are communication, both verbal and non-verbal, and prolonged eye contact. It is a superb way to connect skin to skin, body to body, touch to touchand of course eye to eye. Infant massage encompasses and supports all these vital aspects of bonding. Delayed bonding may occur due to situations such as premature birth, recovery from caesarean, medical complications, adoption, lack of physical and emotional support and post natal depression. In these cases Infant Massage can begin to heal, soften and recreate the elements of bonding.
Infant massage has many benefits including; Stimulates production of oxytocin (Oxytocin is a hormone which can be produced by both male and female persons during massage. It is useful as a pain reliever and has a calming effect on the person.), Promotes waste elimination, Relieved teething pain, Helps digestion, Improves blood circulation, Promotes better sleep, Improves connection with mum and dad, Relaxes baby, plus many more but best of all, the parents learn about their baby and baby learns about their parents.
Partners can especially benefit from infant massage. It gives them time to connect and interact with their child on a deeper level than day to day contact provides.
