The Parent and ChildCenter at BristolHospital is hosting a free focus group entitled “Infant Massage: Nurturing Touch.” This group will teach parents about the many wonderful benefits of infant massage – for both parent and baby. The workshop is hands-on, so participants will need to bring their baby as well as a few blankets. Prenatal parents will be provided a doll, which can be used to practice massage techniques in class. Massage oil and a packet of take-home instructions will be provided to each participant.
The program will run at the Parent and ChildCenter, 9 Prospect St. in Bristol on Wednesday, Jan. 29 from 10 to 11 a.m.
Pre-registration is required for this program, and space is limited. To register, call the Parent and ChildCenter at (860) 585-3829 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funding for this group is provided by a Nurturing Families Network grant from the Connecticut Children’s Trust Fund.
