Carrying your baby in a sling

You and your baby every day
_

Would you like to learn about different ways of carrying your baby in a sling? Or learning to massage him or her? Our midwives offer complimentary courses at our maternity ward.

Carrying your baby in a sling

We offer mums and dads a babywearing course, given by midwives, to ensure that the baby is well positioned.

This course is based on the following features: 

 

  • Learning how to use a baby sling, to protect the baby’s back, and the back of the parents.
  • Becoming attentive to the child’s needs so that he/she feels reassured and safe and to prevent him/her from getting upset.
  • Establishing a bond and a sense of closeness with the child.

 

Baby massage

Likewise, we offer an approach to baby massage. This approach is guided by Ayurvedic/Thai/Traditional Western practices and has benefits such as:

 

  • Rest and relaxation.
  • Stimulating the child’s bodily, cognitive and affective dimensions.
  • Helping improve digestion and relieve any colic so as to improve sleep.

 

These services are reserved exclusively for the clinic's patients.
