How touch can nurture

The importance and benefits of touch originate pre-birth in the womb. They further develop through birth and the toddler years into adulthood, and continue as we age. Touch is one of the first senses we develop. From vibrations within the womb to the parent-child touch, it forms the foundation of early childhood development.

Who doesn’t love a hug, a kiss, a hand on your shoulder, muscles being eased into relaxation through massage, or holding someone’s hand. The importance of this sense extends throughout our life; further than sight or hearing in our older years

Touch stimulation relieves stress and promotes overall wellbeing physically and mentally. We need touch to thrive as a baby – and as a mother post birth. I’d like to be there for you when you get home.
