Breastfeeding classes for new mums and mothers-to-be


As a lactation consultant, midwife (certified in France) and a mother of a three year old (just weaned) I would like to offer to breastfeeding mothers and mother-to-be some classes to talk, share about breastfeeding, baby's cares....

I believe that mothers groups are very useful when you just give birth, especially in a foreign country!

Classes will be every first and third mondays each month from 10:30am-12:30pm in my place in Azabu Juban. I will ask JP¥1,500/per classe as participation fees (Sweets and drinks included :) )

Please email me for more details: celia.hughes@mac.com

While pregnancy is a wonderful, special time, there is often lot of discomfort. Hormones that are very necessary for this amazing process can cause a variety of both physical and emotional issues.  Don't suffer!  Support the well-being of you and your baby with a professional pregnancy massage.

I'm Lisa, New York State licensed massage therapist at Club 360.  I'm also fully certified in both Pregnancy Massage and Medical Lymphatic Drainage.  Did you know that a professional pregnancy massage not only combats the aches and pains associated with pregnancy, but reduces swelling, enhances mood and even LOWERS the chance of premature birth?  That's the documented medical research!  There is NO research indicating that professional massage is in any way linked to miscarriage.  If you have been advised against massage by your Japanese doctor or turned away by local establishments, please come see me.
