Baldock Baby Massage

Baldock Beauty & Relaxation

Minimising the risk

Keeping up to date with the most recent government and association guidance to keep you safe when you visit. Please note there have been many changes over the past few months and BBM is committed to being up to date an implement any necessary changes to keep you safe!!!


Risk assessments, cleaning regimes and communication has been specifically prepared to reflect BB&R / BBM services and venues. Working in Covid secure venues allows us to continue to offer classes inline with venue covid safe capacity.


Clients and parents have a responsibility to follow policies in an effort to do our bit in controlling the virus. 


Please note

Government guidance is continuously changing and this will be reflected in the way we come together.

Baby Massage​ 

Control the virus

If anyone in your household is experiencing the following symptoms;

Temperature

New cough

Loss of taste or smell

Visit the gov.uk website and follow the current guidance. 


If you have travelled overseas or into an "area of intervention" please wait 2 weeks before attending.


HAND WASHING 

Science still suggests that hand washing is more effective than hand gels (gels are fine if no sinks available) we are fortunate to have plenty of hand washing stations in our venue. You will be asked to wash your hands upon arrival. 


Do I have to wear a mask? 

The current guidance requires you to wear a mask where 2 metre social distancing cannot be maintained.

All my classes will have 2 metres social distancing. 


Our classes focus on parenting and nurturing skills as well as communication and development. It's important for babies to see your facial expressions and clearly hear your voice whilst massaging. I work with smaller groups to ensure we have the ability to safely do this. 

Ventilation

Scientific studies have show that good ventilation reduces the spread of covid-19.

I use venues with windows and door that open to allow the room to fully air before and after each sessions.  Extractor fans will remain on where possible and a window will remain a tad open, on the latch to ensure fresh air exchange. 

Heating will be on during the winter months.

Does the rule of 6 apply to covid safe venues?

No we are not restricted to the rule of 6 as we have all our covid safe practises in place. 

However, we do keep our groups. Normally 6 mum & bubs plus instructor.

Private groups and 1-2-1's are also available.

 

The government has issued guidance on the safe reopening of venues and community centres and halls.

The venue and individual group hiring the space is required to create their own risk assessments detailing how they are going to use the space and at what capacity they can do this safely.

Singing

New research has demonstrated that singing at a low volume does not increase the spread of droplets as much as previously thought. That there is very little difference between talking and singing in a low volume. This is GREAT NEWS for us as singing is such a lovely part of our course.

Course dates

Baby led classes

Babies are welcome whatever their mood.  Its normal for babies to cry and make lots of noise so never feel embarrassed about this. 

If baby needs feeding, changing or cuddling during the session please do so as part of our group. If baby decides to sleep through the session feel free to practise the strokes on one of my demonstration doll (they're cleaned after every use) or just sit back and watch and enjoy being part of our lovely group with your hands free to enjoy a cuppa. 

Can I attend a Baldock course if I live in a different area?

We welcome you from neighbouring villages and towns and have a free car park to help you access the course in Baldock.

Please note if your area is listed as an "area of intervention" at any point during your course, you are kindly asked not to attend.  We will find another way to complete your course or possibly join another course at a later date.  

What happens if there's another lockdown?

The government have committed to keeping covid safe businesses open.  Ours groups comes under New parent support group  as long as we follow the most up to date guidance we should be able to proceed even if more restrictions are in place.


However, if restrictions do not allow our group to meet we will look at the best possible way to complete the course.  this may take form in 1-2-1's, smaller groups or online meets.  Individual circumstances will have to be taken into account. Course that have not yet started may have to be postponed.  

Guidance will continue to be closely followed to keep you safe.
