Free Workshop During Support Group!
Studies have shown that infant massage by an infant’s mother has a host of benefits for both mother AND baby.
Infant massage, when done regularly, decreases maternal depression, encourages infant weight gain, and increases melatonin, a hormone which regulates babies’ sleep cycles. We will teach you how to give your baby a massage and also discuss how to create a bedtime routine that works for the whole family.
This workshop is led by Salus University occupational therapy graduate interns with facilitation by Dr. Lauren Sponseller. In addition, they will be available for one-on-one screening appointments, following the workshops, from 12:00-2:00 pm.
This workshop is FREE and no registration is required. All babies are welcome!
All workshops, classes and Support Groups are held in our 3rd floor Education Room. Please enter the building through the door at the top of the ramp off the parking lot and head upstairs.
