Please read these guidelines carefully before you attend your first class.
Parents work with their own baby.
When practicing with your baby, never rush or force anything. If you feel stressed or tense, just take a break and come back to the practice later. Always ensure that you feel safe, secure and confident with the way you are holding or working with your baby. Never do anything that you do not feel comfortable with.
If your baby is unwell, it is best not to attend the massage class. If your baby is crying excessively and cannot be comforted, he/she may be ill. Never practice on a distressed baby, or if your baby is limp, pale, has a temperature, or any difficulties breathing. Please seek appropriate medical help.
It is not recommended to practice within 24 hours of your baby’s immunisations. You are still welcome however to come along to the session and you can either sit and watch and then practice at home or you can join in and practice the strokes on a doll instead.
COVID COMPLIANT CLASSES
I am so excited to welcome parents and babies back to face-to-face classes but there are some changes to how classes will operate to keep everyone safe. Please ensure you read the following and sign to agree the conditions.
MASKS - masks or a face covering MUST be worn when entering the venue and in all common areas within the venue. Once you are sat in your designated space you can remove your mask. However, if you get up to use the toilets, or move around, you MUST pop your mask back on.
All mats will be at least 2 metres apart and you will be asked to stay in your area.
Unfortunately I am no longer able to provide cushions for people to sit on, however you are welcome to bring your own as we will be sat on the floor for the duration of the class and the floor can become uncomfortable.
please provide your own towel or blanket to use for your baby to cover over areas that we are not massaging, and any toys that will make baby feel at home (nothing over-stimulating).
Please DO NOT ATTEND class if you have any of the following symptoms;
o a new continuous cough
o a high temperature
o a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell
· You will be asked to sanitise your hands on entry, and on leaving the venue.
· We must ask you to follow one-way systems when indicated.
· We require that you inform us immediately if you test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of attending a class with us.
YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE A COVID MEDICAL QUESTIONNAIRE PRIOR TO ATTENDING THE FIRST CLASS AND TO KEEP THE TEACHER NOTIFIED OF ANY CHANGES IN YOUR ANSWERS BEFORE EACH CLASS THEREAFTER.
IN THE EVENT OF ANOTHER LOCKDOWN, LOCAL OR NATIONAL, OR CLASSES NEED TO BE STOPPED DUE TO AN OUTBREAK OR NEED FOR QUARANTINING, CLASSES WILL RESUME ONLINE VIA ZOOM.
