Welcome to Baby Choices
Baby Choices offers baby massage and baby yoga classes at St Paul's Church Hall in Heaton Moor, Stockport. Our face-to-face group classes on Thursday afternoons will hopefully resume very soon! Please register your interest by joining the mailing list below and as soon as there is a re-opening date confirmed you will receive a priority notification.
Baby massage and baby yoga are great opportunities to have fun and bond with your baby who can experience a mix of relaxation and beneficial movements. Massage and yoga can reduce crying and fussiness, ease stomach issues such as colic, as well as help to improve digestion and poor sleep patterns.
Our classes and workshops are suitable for babies of 4 weeks upwards. Through a combination of Indian and Swedish massage strokes and elements of Chinese reflexology we will learn how to soothe common baby ailments such as colic symptoms, sleep issues, coughs, colds and teething.
Our sessions are totally baby-led, so you can just feed, comfort and change baby’s nappy as and whenever needed throughout the sessions. You will be emailed a handout with a recap of each session's strokes plus a link to the class video each week in case you miss anything. No specialist equipment is needed for the class, just something soft for your baby to lie on and somewhere warm and comfy for you both to sit, oil is optional.
Next 3 week online term begins Tuesday 4th May 1-1.30pm
£15 for 3 classes including weekly support materials, the live Zoom sessions and lifetime access to the instructional videos. Suitable for babies from 4 weeks to 1 year.
The course will include:
relaxing routines designed to soothe your baby and help them unwind for improved sleep.
chest strokes to release congestions and ease snuffles, coughs and colds
tummy massage techniques which can help to ease digestive issues connected to colic, such as trapped wind, constipation, cramps and discomfort
get prepared for teething with a gentle facial massage routine
a mini social element each week and some positive tummy time positions

Our unique classes are a blend of beneficial yoga-based poses, songs, moves, and bonding moments. Yoga aides deeper sleep, reduces fussiness and encourages your baby to reach their milestones. Suitable for babies aged 10 weeks and over.
Your baby will move through their very own mini yoga-based routine, try fun action songs and stretches, dynamic moves such as swings, dips and inversion, plus a moment of calm relaxation times for you and your baby. If your baby is having issues with digestion, poor sleep or you're worrying about a lack of stimulation for them, then this class could be ideal for you. No specialist equipment or clothing is required for this class.
Next term dates TBC. Please sign up below and you will receive priority notification of new term dates.
About Baby Choices
Baby Choices is owned and run by Jenni Eade, mum of 2 and a fully qualified and insured, enhanced DBS-checked postnatal yoga teacher, toddler and infant yoga and baby massage instructor from Stockport.
"I have been a qualified teacher since 2005 and involved in Early Years work since 2017. After having my own 2 children I'm now passionate about empowering parents and carers through informed choices! My classes include postnatal physical, mental and emotional support and I offer inclusive affordable classes for babies and their families."
Jenni has trained intensively with Senior yoga teachers who are registered with both the Independent Yoga Network and Yoga Alliance Professionals. Baby Massage and Baby Yoga courses are certified by To Baby and Beyond, a training body who are accredited by the prestigious Royal College of Midwives.
I would definitely recommend Baby Choices for Baby Massage, Baby Yoga and Teething Workshops. My little girl and I have attended all three and loved them. Jenni is a fantastic teacher and interacts with the babies brilliantly as well as supporting parents through her classes and the early few months of parenthood!
I have certainly made the most of the Baby Choices classes whilst on maternity! I have been fortunate to attend all of the types of classes Jenni offers including Baby Massage, Baby Yoga, Teething Workshops and most recently Messy Play! I have absolutely love attending all the classes with Lottie and will certainly miss them when I go back to work! Highly recommend!!
