How it works

Rubba-bubba specialises in small and relaxed classes of 10-12 mothers and babies to avoid an overwhelming environment, ensure quality of teaching and to provide individual support. All class massage oil, soothing music, downloadable handouts and tea and refreshments are all provided in class at no extra cost. Baby massage  and Baby yoga is such a special and valuable gift to give your baby, it’s so simple but very effective!

We now offer Baby & Child Sleep Coaching so your child can learn, grow and develop as they should.  And so that care-givers can benefit from being rested to function and cope with the day.

We also offer informal First Aid for Babies and Early Days Sessions with Tash – for those who need little help with starting a routine, need feeding support, not sure where to start with weaning or just need a good chat to make sure everything is going ok – these wonderful baby’s are life changing and don’t come with a manual!!

Benefits

The Benefits Of Baby Massage and Baby Yoga

Touch is very powerful. We use it naturally and without thinking to calm, relax, reassure or heal. A simple hug says a lot. For example if our baby is upset, we may cuddle them or rub their back.

‘Babies have a biological need for close physical affection. Nothing is more important to their emotional, physical and intellectual development than a comforting cuddle or a loving touch.'(Dr.Lin Day, 2008).

Massaging your baby or doing yoga is an extension of this natural impulse. Infant massage has been around for thousands of years, however in the UK, it has only become popular in the last 10 years. It is a wonderful way of spending quality time with your new baby doing such a simple and beneficial activity together. Studies show that not everyone has ‘love at first sight’ with their baby; (after an initial wave of maternal feelings) nothing can prepare you for this amazing journey as a parent-but we can make it easier on the way!

Constipation much better, he’s going daily now and colic definitely seems a bit Better! He’s really enjoying the massages too, so glad you came when you did, I’m definitely seeing an improvement so thank you very much ? x

I really enjoyed our newborn colic session with Tasha. My little one had been struggling with colic at nights and with help and understanding from Tasha improved a lot. My little one loved her daily massages and has settled into routine and is all round a happier baby. I would highly recommend Tasha

The long lasting benefits of regular baby massage and baby yoga for infants and parents include:

  • Improves the special Parent-baby bond especially for parents going back to work
  • Effectively reduces symptoms of colic, painful wind & constipation
  • Helps stimulate and support baby’s co-ordination, circulation, digestion, learning & language development
  • Encourages baby to sleep better & for sustained periods
  • Alleviates nasal congestion & teething pain
  • Proven to reduce post natal depression
  • Improves skin integrity
  • Boosts self esteem & confidence in new mothers
  • And most importantly- a relaxing & fun activity for both parent & baby

Our Testimonials

Such a wonderful experience – I’m so glad I signed up.

I was anxious about being in a group environment, but needn’t have been. Sarah couldn’t be more warm, welcoming and understanding.
She creates a lovely, relaxing atmosphere and a great opportunity to bond with our tiny new humans and have some relaxing time with a cuppa!
I really cannot recommend these class enough to all new mums (even if you’re a bit anxious like me)
Thanks so much Sara! xx

I’ve absolutely loved my first term of baby massage with Sara!

We have learnt such invaluable skills such as how to deal with tummy troubles and teething through massage. My baby always falls asleep in my arms after each session so I can enjoy the relaxing chat with the other mothers after. Fantastic for a first time mum like myself to have a supportive environment to be able to attend each week. Also, having the opportunity to have external speakers come and talk to us from a variety of backgrounds is fantastic!

Harry’s sleeping is amazing.

He will go down between 7pm – 7.30pm, sleep through until between 5am- 6am for a feed and will then sleep on average until 8am! It only took a few nights and he improved dramatically, within the week he was sleeping through. He has 2 day naps now of about 1.5hrs, he’s eating amazingly too. We all feel so much better from finally sleeping!
