Courses and Worshops
A 4 week course learning the art of Baby Massage and all its benefits. The class is suitable for babies from 6 weeks to approximately 9 months, or crawling. Baby Bloom Development provides a relaxed, friendly and non-judgemental environment and group sizes are kept small so as babies are not over-stimulated. Mats and cushions provided. You will be given your own bottle of fractionated coconut oil and a certificate upon completion, as well as access to an online baby massage course, access to our Baby Bloom Buddies Facebook group and our Baby Bloom Buddies Card!
Come and share a special time with your baby!
Classes run regularly at Mothercare Torquay and Premier Kickboxing in Newton Abbot. Both venues are calm and quiet, are easy to get to and have plenty of free parking.

An Introduction to Baby Massage
A fantastic way to begin practicing baby massage with your little one. This workshop leads on perfectly to our 4 week baby massage course. During the 90 minutes you will spend some special time with your baby bonding, connecting with other parents and learning some new skills to settle and soothe. Suitable for babies from 6 weeks until crawling, the course includes a bottle of fractionated coconut oil, a certificate on completion and £5 gift card for any Baby Bloom Development course.
Due to the success of our previous Self-Care workshop, I’m pleased to announce that I’ll once again be teaming up with the fantastic Tropic Skincare Consultant Lucy Wills to offer new mums and partners a 1.5 hour special of nurturing, bonding, relaxing and self-care.
This friendly and relaxed session is for mums, babies and partners (Dad, Granny, Auntie our friend)
Mums will enjoy a full hour of pampering, product testing and demonstrations from the lovely Lucy Wills of Tropic Skincare, a multi-award winning natural and cruelty-free beauty company. This is a fun opportunity to explore some of the beautiful products, get skincare advice, relax, and have a chat with a hot drink and biscuits!
Whilst mums are busy, Sophie will be leading a baby massage session for babies and partners. They will learn a simple baby massage routine for the legs and feet, as well as soothing strokes to help relieve tummy troubles and colic. They’ll be shown some calming holds and settling techniques for your baby and there will be an opportunity for some tummy time and gentle play.
Following this, there will be the chance to socialise, have hot drinks, biscuits and fruit, chat with other parents, relax and ask us any questions you may have.
This session is suitable for babies from 6 weeks to active crawling and open to all, whether you have attended a class with us before or if you’d like a little introduction to baby massage.
All mats and cushions will be provided.
The cost is £20 for the 90 minutes and will include a bottle of massage oil, hot drinks, sweet treats and a free gift bag.
