Baby Massages, 3 sessions・Mirjam Vos I Amsterdam

July 17 @ 3:15 pm - 4:30 pm

To have full attention with your baby. Babies are not only very sensitive to touch, they also love attention and rest. During the massage, these aspects are fully interwoven.You will learn how to massage according to the so-called Shantala baby massage method – a centuries-old, simple method that is easily applicable. Through direct physical contact, you will understand your baby’s body language better.

You can ease bowel problems, constipation, agitation and overstretching. It may help your baby to sleep deeper or longer and find rest. But most of all, baby massage relaxes you and your baby, strengthens your mutual bond, and builds trust.

The course consists of 3 meetings of 1 hour (10:00 – 11:00) on the following dates:

  • 17th, 24th, 31st of July, 2024

About Mirjam Vos
The connection with my body has always been natural and fundamental. I was trained to become a dance teacher after high school (vwo). The arrival of our daughter (in 1990) inspired me to consider and set up a course I called Moving with your baby (Bewegen met je baby). After the birth of our son (in 1994) I became interested in Baby massage (including Shantala) and followed a two-year haptonomy degree programme at the University of Applied Sciences (hbo). I became increasingly interested in perinatal and parental issues and I have been running pregnancy classes since 1995.I trained initially to become a Pregnant & Fit instructor and then a course leader for Pregnant Together (Samen Bevallen). Later I became a teacher for these training sessions. I became an accredited Bowen therapist in May 2011. My focus during this complementary manual therapy was primarily on the treatment of babies, pregnant women and mothers, although I have stopped offering these sessions. Since 2012, Mindfulness has become a major area of focus.For my work as a Bowen therapist I graduated in 2016 summa cum laude in The Fundamentals of Medical Knowledge (Medische Basiskennis) from the University of Applied Sciences. My first book, Liefdevol bevallen (Birthing with Love), was published in 2019 (second print 2024).Personal contact and the exchange of experience has always been important to me. That’s why I work with small groups. I often attend deliveries as a way to stay in touch with expectant couples and babies. I keep up to date with the latest insights and developments through ‘education permanent’ by attending symposia and following refresher courses in a wide range of relevant areas of expertise. In the course of the 25 years that I have been giving pregnancy courses and baby classes, the Geboortecentrum Amsterdam has remained both my cradle and my practical base.
