This baby massage class with Calm Waves Hypnobirthing & Massage teaches you lots of massage techniques that will relax, calm and soothe your baby. You’ll learn some wonderful techniques to help soothe colic and tummy troubles. You’ll also learn some really effective ways to encourage tummy time, in a gentle and fun way, and also learn how your baby can make friends with gravity!
The group courses are held in the lovely midwife clinic, Verloskundige Pratijk Helende Meesters in Amstelveen (opposite Amstelland hospital).
We start each session with some holding and reassurance techniques, with your baby fully clothed, until your baby feels happy and content. Once your baby is ready, we then begin the massage with their clothes off (using soft towels to cover the areas of the body not being touched), using some lovely organic oil (provided). Relaxing music is played while we gently soothe our babies with some light nursery rhymes, and lots of relaxation breathing to help parents relax. The last session is an exciting sensory class which the babies love!
Each session is 1.5 hours long, with some relaxing time at the end for tea/coffee, snacks (and some yummy homemade cake!) and lots of time to chat.
Other family members, dads, mums, grandparents, and siblings are welcome too!

About your teacher:
Hello, my name is Miranda and I am a mummy to Forest and Daisy! I’m originally from the UK, one of 6 daughters to my wonderful parents. I lived in Singapore, India and now here in the Netherlands.
I’m so passionate about everything massage, pregnancy and birth related. I never thought I would be!
Giving birth, and becoming a parent, is a huge journey, a life-changing experience. I truly believe that if a woman has great support by her side, she can have the most positive, empowering birth experience. This is why I became a doula. A supportive and encouraging birth partner can be positively birth-changing! HypnoBirthing courses help birth partners to be wonderful support. For some, they feel they need an experienced and skilled female support too, and that’s where I can step in. I’m a birth doula and love to support and empower parents through their journey, whether they birth at home, in a hospital, without pain relief, with all the pain meds on offer, or via c-section. Every single birth deserves preparation and love and support.
I became a Holistic massage therapist in the UK in 2009, and have been learning more and more since then through experience and trainings. I enjoy working with pregnant women especially. A woman’s body goes through many changes during pregnancy, and birth, and massage supports those changes, while nurturing her, making her feel wonderful.
I’m also a fully qualified Baby Massage teacher, having trained in London. Baby massage is a powerful way to communicate and bond with your baby, helping to build your confidence whilst supporting and encouraging your baby’s development. Touch is so important for a baby’s development.
I have been lucky to have helped 100’s of families whilst living and working in Singapore, the UK, and now here in the Netherlands, and have experience teaching and supporting in hospitals and in more intimate venues and private homes.
I can’t wait to be able to help and support you through your pregnancy, birth and baby journey!
