  1. I did the baby massage class in June/July 2018. I thought it was really good, in particular the tummy massage – I use it every day, I found it brilliant for wind. I also use the legs and hands especially after bath time when applying moisturiser to my little one.
    The atmosphere in the class is really relaxed so it was easy to ask questions etc. I found the discussions after the massage great. A specific topic is covered every week and the advise offered was practical and relevant. It’s done in a non preachy way – just facts and experiences of other new moms so it doesn’t feel like your being lectured. As a new mom you get loads of unsolicited advice that’s not always welcome and can be condescending so it was ideal to have a safe space for sharing with other new moms. Adeline also encouraged us all to go for lunch/coffee and meet up after the course. We have a WhatsApp group and contact each other on it. It’s ideal to have a network of other moms in the area with babies around the same age.

  2. I have recently finished baby massage classes with Adeline. I found them really helpful with baby issues such as wind and tummy issues. Adeline gives very practical advice. The discussion part of the class is excellent for mammies to discuss different stages of their babies development. I did baby massage with my first child also and was delighted to come back and do it again with my second. I am still in contact with both groups of mammies which is great for asking questions related to our children. I would definitely recommend Adeline’s classes to any new Mother.

  3. I can not recommend Adeline’s baby massage class highly enough, I joined this class when my daughter was 7 weeks old and learned so much. Her class is broken down into two sessions, the first part of the class is dedicated to baby massage which my little one loved and the second part of the class focuses on discussion on all baby related topics which I found the most beneficial especially as a first time mum, I learned so many helpful techniques on sleeping routines to tips on helping a fussy baby to enjoy the dreaded tummy time. Adeline is so friendly and helpful and a wealth of knowledge on all baby related topics and I would recommend this class a must for all first time mums.

  4. I recently completed the baby massage class with Adelaine.Ifound it absolutely brilliant. I learned some fantastic massage techniques for relieving wind and helping my little boy to chill out. The setting is warm and cosy and the chat after the class is really informative and helpful. I met a great bunch if girls and we now meet up regularly.

  5. Baby massage is a fantastic class. I started when my baby was 3 weeks old and found the special tummy massage excellent to relieve wind. Met a great group of Mammies whom I’m still in touch with. It is a great way to bond with baby and a great social activity for Mammies. Adeline has endless knowledge and the discussion section of the class is so informative and it is reassuring to hear from other Mammies. The cuppa and chocolate is a bonus!!

  6. My son had alot of problems with wind and reflux in the early days. Joining baby massage class helped so much as I learnt so many things from Adeline and it was also nice to know you werent the only one with an upset baby. Adeline is very thourough in her work and makes sure your 100% confident in what she has thought. I met alot of other mums and Adeline also pushed us to go for lunch and i am so thankful she did. Since doing baby massage i am able to settle my son much faster and he is much more relaxed i have joined the pilates since and i am loving it and greatful for what i have learned so far

  7. I was having difficulty settling my little one in the evenings and during the night so I enrolled in baby massage hoping to pick up some tips. Not only did I learn massage techniques to help soothe my baby but Adeline provided numerous practical tips and information on many baby related topics. Adeline provided a warm friendly atmosphere for talk and discussion. This is my third baby and I can honestly say that it was the best run parent and baby class I have attended. Adeline is extremely organised and focused and ensured we got the maximum benefit from the class. I would highly recommend this class to any parent.

  8. I began the baby massage classes with Adeline in April last year. It was such a lovely experience and I will be recommending it to anyone I know with a new baby. My daughter really enjoyed the interaction in the classes and it was a lovely bonding experience. It was a relaxed, friendly atmosphere thanks to Adeline’s approach and her encouragement to get to know each other. Adeline has lots of great advice and I enjoyed the cuppa and chat at the end of each class. Would highly recommend.

  9. I completed the baby massage class this summer and can genuinely say that it was lovely experience. Not only did I learn a new skill in massaging baby- which my little man loved- but also learned so much from other mothers based on their experiences with a new arrival in the household. Adeline is a natural teacher and provides an informal and friendly environment for mothers to share their views- while also providing the tea/coffees and obligatory chocolate bars!

  10. The baby massage class us the best thing I did for myself after having my baby. I learned do much in the class from massaging my baby to all the hints and tips from the discussion after. This is my second time to do baby massage with Adeline and i have recommended it to so many people. It is so enjoyable.

  11. I recently attended the Baby massage classes with my baby boy. I would highly recommend the classes to new mums. It’s a great way to meet other mamas whilst learning a host of massage skills for your new baby. Adeline has a wealth of knowledge for all things baby related and provides a flexible relaxed environment to learn baby massage.

  12. I started the baby massage classes when my baby was 5 and 1/2 weeks old. I really enjoyed the classes. They were so well organized and focused each week. I loved learning how to do the baby massage and my little girl responded really well to it and I’m still using it months later. I also thought the coffee and chat after the class was so helpful as a first time mother. I learned loads from it and got great tips from Adeline and the other mothers in the class about sleep, feeding, development etc. I would highly recommend this class.

  13. I attended the baby massage classes as My little man was having trouble with wind. I learned lots of techniques which not only helped to release wind but helped my baby to relax. From a first time mothers perspective it was fantastic as I got to meet other mothers and made some great friends. Adeline creates a very relaxed atmosphere and has a vast knowledge of all things baby related. I really enjoyed the classes and would highly recommend it to all first time mothers.

  14. On the recommendation of my sister I recently attended the baby massage class when my little boy was only a few weeks old.
    My little boy thoroughly enjoys his massages. In the beginning he had some problems with his tummy which the massage really helped while his digestive system developed and now he is just enjoying the massage for relaxation purposes. I find massage is such a lovely way to bond with my baby.

    This however is only the beginning of the benefits of Adeline’s baby massage class.

    The way in which the class is structured is lovely. Adeline begins by teaching the massage techniques. This is followed with a cup of tea and biscuits and wonderfully informative discussions about everything baby related. Adeline provides a wealth of knowledge and reading material online also so when baby brain rears its ugly head you have a way to recap on the information discussed in class.

    Best of all, for me anyway, was that Adeline had us set up a supportive whatsapp group and encouraged us to go for lunch after the class. Our group continues to meet weekly for lunch, walks, nights out etc.

    I found Adeline to be thouroughly professional, but more than this, her class was so supportive, fun and relaxing. Joining her class was the best thing I could have done for myself and my baby abd I would highly recommend it (and have to a few people already) to anyone.

  15. I did baby massage with Adeline when my little girl was 3 weeks old – I’m a first time mum & wanted to get out of the house & do something nice with my baby…..little did I know how much it would benefit us both – I met other mammies in the same boat & made really lovely friends, my baby loves our little massage routine & Adeline provides a great open class with lots of baby discussion & topics – I couldn’t recommend the class highly enough!!

  16. Adeline’s baby massage classes are excellent. I would highly recommend any mam to do it. I did it when my little boy was 2 months old and we both loved it. Massage is a lovely thing to do with your baby. The massage techniques are taught in a fun and relaxed way, for the first half of the class. The second half of the class is a discussion (with a cup of tea!) about everything baby related e.g. sleep, learning and development, over stimulation. I learnt a lot during these discussions. There is always lunch afterwards if you can make it. It is an excellent support group and Adeline always encourages this. I met some lovely mams in the area and we continue to meet up.

  17. The baby massage classes with Adeline were the best thing I could do as a new mam. It was a brilliant thing to look forward to on a Monday. Learnt great massage techniques and a great way of bonding with my baby. But also learnt so much in the discussion part of the class and it was so lovely to get a hot cup of tea handed to you! Have made a new set of friends through this also. Would throughly recommend this course to anyone.

  18. Brought my 10 day old baby to the class,
    Was great to learn the massage techniques
    Especially for sleep and tummy problems
    Overall massage is only half the time
    Rest which I found most useful was
    Discussion on all things baby related
    And meeting new moms, Nearly 5
    Months later and we still meet every Wednesday. One of the best things I did for myself and the baby

  19. Did baby massage when my little man was 4 months old. Was a bit anxious before the first class but that was soon squashed when I got down there… was so sad when the 6 weeks ended. They were fantastic classes both for my little man and for me, connecting up with women who were also in the same boat as myself, being a first time Mam!!! Adeline is amazing, the massage and general baby tips I picked up have really helped me along the way! Would highly recommend this class to anyone who wanted to do something special with their little ones!!
