Join us for Virtual Infant Massage!

Would you like to learn to connect with your baby through infant massage? Would you like to learn about the benefits of infant massage? Would you and your baby like to make social connections in a supportive group environment?  There are two pathways for learning infant massage; 1) UConn Health Women's Center offers a one-session infant massage class. In this class you will learn massage techniques and massage routines that will help you bond with your baby. Class is held online via Zoom. Fee is $25.00. View class dates and register online.

and 2) UConn Health Parenting is offering a 4- week Infant Massage Course with Jennifer Vendetti, parent educator of infant massage.  Please plan to attend all four online classes.  This course is free and ideal for parents of newborns (babies ages 6 weeks to 4 months). Mothers, fathers, and other caregivers are welcome.  Naturally, this is a course where your baby will attend with you!
