Me and my little boy Zack love Relax and Sing and we look forward to it every week! Corinna is friendly and welcoming and she also makes great tea and cake! I really enjoy chatting to the other mums and sharing stories. Zack loves the massage, yoga and singing! Would definitely recommend to anyone.'

'This class is amazing and fab for babies! After taking a massage class before and feeling very awkward as me and the other mummies mainly silently massaged our babies, this class is a totally different ball game. My little bubba is 4 months now and loves his Relax and Sing class. He loves the singing with the massages and yoga and I love the mummy chat that we have during. Corinna really makes you feel welcome and at ease. What's even better is my little boy sleeps for a good few hours after his class and the tea and cake at the end is a right mummy bonus! Deffo recommend! X x x ' Laura and George
'Corinna is fantastic, she has been great with my twins. They have enjoyed her lovely singing, and we have loved coming to this group. I highly recommend you try a session with your little one.'

'Absolutely loved the massage sessions. Grace was so relaxed and always fell asleep straight afterwards. Corinna is a lovely lady and shows you what to do and even provides you with tea and cake, perfect!'
Rachel and Grace
'Lovely class, so much more than just the baby massage. Lots of different ways to bond with your baby in the hour. Also so nice to share stories with other mummies over a cuppa at the end. Corinna is lovely and her baking is another highlight of the class!'

Please bring a blanket or soft towel for your baby to lie on, and another in case you need to partially cover them while they are being massaged so they don't get cold. There is a kettle at the venue if you need to make up a bottle, and there is also a microwave should you need it. Just bring your normal baby changing equipment and I will have everything else you need.
We use pure organic cold-pressed sunflower oil, which is safe to use on your baby's skin after the age of six weeks. I would recommend avoiding any synthetic oils on your baby, unless prescribed by a doctor. A good rule of thumb is that if you would use it on a salad, and eat it raw, it will be fine to use on your baby's skin. Fractionated coconut oil is another good choice.
Absolutely! I don't charge any extra for twins, and you can either bring a helper along to hold one of the twins while you massage the other, or you can allow me to demonstrate the massage strokes on one of your twins. I have several sets of twins currently attending classes, and have just started a monthly twins' massage session, so twin parents can connect.
I run monthly family classes at the weekend so dads are always welcome at these classes. These family sessions are not only for dads though, we've had grannies, older brothers and sisters, aunties and friends attending. Dependent on space, dads may also be able to come along to the regular weekly classes, so please just ask! Babies always love it when their dads come along, and the addition of male voices really adds a special something to the singing!
Babies from as young as three weeks old have started attending my classes. Very young babies may not tolerate more than a few minutes of massage to start off with, but they quickly adapt and benefit from the massage, yoga and singing. Don't worry if your baby cries, we are all used to it! You're welcome to change, feed, move around to soothe your baby, and dip in and out of the session as you wish. Even if your baby sleeps or feeds throughout the whole session, you will still have got out of the house, and met some lovely mums to share the highs and lows of parenting with!
I know that babies are not always predictable, so if either of you are ill and miss a class don't worry! I will always try and accommodate you with a catch-up class, which can be taken in any of the other weekly classes during your block, space permitting. I know how expensive parenting can be, so I don't want you to miss out!
