ABOUT ME

My name is Leveta and I am a registered general nurse, have a Bsc in Health Science, and a Diploma in Systemic Psychotherapy which is a talking therapy. I currently work as an independent health visitor teaching IAIM infant massage classes for babies and parents. All health visitors are trained nurses and its an additional course and covers among other things child development and a whole host of useful skills. If we don't know the answer then we might know some one who does.
I first used massage with my second daughter, who is now 25, and saw the benefits firsthand. That's us being cheeky in the picture in France.

In 2008 I trained and qualified as a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) following a 4 day course with the International Association of Infant Massage in London. The association has instructors all over the world in 30 countries. Sometimes we share texts which is fun if you can speak the language. Our next international conference is in Paris.
We are also expected to annually update our strokes and take on any new research through country wide refresher courses held each year. I recently spend a day in London with Cherry Bond and other CIMIs (see her book for parents with babies in NICU ) learning about the needs of premature babies and infant massage. In my work I have found that baby massage definitely helps mothers to connect with their baby, especially when labour has been a bit tough or if they are feeling a bit low, and tearful. It is also said to be helpful if mummies are suffering with depression after birth. Mother hood can be a lonely job and our classes bring people together.
It also helps to build that special relationship called bonding which doesn't come on automatically it usually has to be worked at by mummies and babies, not forgetting daddies.
We love to see babies from 6 weeks as this is the perfect time for IAIM Massage.

ABOUT MY CLASSES

I run one to one and group classes which consist of:

- Five classes of 1.5 hours each, run over 5 weeks
- A full body massage routine and a short routine to help with colic
- Detailed handouts to take home
- Time for questions and a chance to share experiences and health advice from a qualified nurse and health visitor registered with Nursing and Midwifery Council of Great Britain

Massage oil and mats will be provided, you just need to bring a blanket to keep baby warm.

The course is suitable for babies from one month to crawling and the strokes will be demonstrated on a doll while you massage your baby.

Premature Babies....we are staring classes for babies that have been born prematurely peep at my face book page for more details or contact me for a chat, come with your baby friends from NICU and all grow big together.

ONE TO ONE SESSIONS AND PRIVATE GROUPS
I also offer one to one sessions in your own home or private classes for NCT and other groups of parents who would like to attend a course together. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
