Baby Massage Workshop-Sunday, April 27th 3:30-5:30@Area Yoga/Montague-BabyBear with one or both ParentBears

First Workshop produced by "Mama Bears"! Open to all. 
Baby Massage Workshop on Montague St

Most everyone loves to be massaged, but do you know what massage can do for your baby?
Skin-to-skin is where your baby’s world begins. Through massaging your baby, you can stimulate mental growth, and foster lifelong bonding skills.
You can calm your baby, glide baby into relaxation, and promote good sleeping.
You can aid with your baby’s digestion and help to treat colic.
And your baby will love it!!!!

This is a two hour afternoon event for babies and parents (one or two) to learn specific baby massage techniques and routines, and to learn new ways of connecting with our new selves as parents, deepening our bond with baby, and strengthening a healthy sense of family well-being.

On Sunday April 27th from 3:30 to 5:30 at Area Yoga 144 Montague St “Mama Bears Picnic” will host Ellynne Skove, Perinatal Specialist and Director of GoGo Babies, for a fun yet serious “playshop” of Baby Massage and more. Everything you need for this event will be supplied, you need only show up in comfortable clothes as we are going floor style. Babies are 5 weeks through pre-crawl. We are a nursing and bottle friendly environment. Babywear is preferred, though there is some room for strollers.
The fee for this course is $55 per family, which includes a take home manual.  We have space for 8 families. We would love to have you!
