Baby spa class held at Lakewood Health System

Lakewood Health System will be offering a unique and fun class called Baby Spa from 6-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20 at Lakewood Health System's Main Campus.

This interactive class is for parents, grandparents and caregivers interested in learning about infant signing, infant massage and aromatherapy. Infant signing is an innovative communication tool parents can use before their child is able to speak and even walk. After learning how to use infant signing, parents will receive a baby signing reference to take home.

Andrea Broughten, Lakewood Health System's certified infant massage therapist, will lead the infant massage session. Parents will learn how to use infant massage to help alleviate pain from common infant problems like colic and constipation.

The aromatherapy session will give parents information about the benefits of using the sense of smell during labor and in the stages after the baby is born.

There is a cost for the class, and each participant will receive a free gift. Participants are asked to bring a doll to practice massage techniques on. To register, call Gayle at (218) 894-8623 or call Nola for more information at (218) 894-8586.
