Newborn Swimming

Born from water, babies have an innate ability to move freely in this aquatic environment. Allowing gentle and calm floating re-connects a baby to their womb experience. We teach you how to handle your baby with a light touch, that still feels supportive, but at the same time allows the baby maximum freedom to move and open their bodies in the water when they are ready. Parents watch with amazement as their newborn baby relaxes in their hands and embraces the new experience.

As confidence grows we teach you to swim with your baby balanced on your chest and show you the positive practices that help baby progress from reflex to voluntary movement. It is not essential to swim with your baby; nervous or non-swimmers can still experience this magic through adaptations and support from the teacher or with flotation aids such as swim noodles or woggles.

These sessions are designed to allow you and your baby the time and space to simply enjoy the blissful experience of floating and bonding. 

The sessions are the perfect introduction to water, laying down positive foundations that lead onto and prepare for baby swimming classes.  Babies feed well and sleep wonderfully after a session in the water and parent’s confidence in handling their newborn is improved.
