I’m writing to you because I’d like to share an important resource with you. Infant Massage USA is a national organization that promotes nurturing touch and communication through training, education and research.
Infant Massage USA works to empower parents and promote nurturing through parent-baby communication and responsiveness in addition to infant massage education. A major focus of their programming is to train and certify Parent Educators (Certified Educators of Infant Massage or CEIMs) who then work directly with parents and caregivers in their communities.
To help introduce you to Infant Massage USA, I included their values below and I encourage you to visit their website to learn more about opportunities to attend an Educator training, attend a parent/caregiver + baby class or support the organization.
Openness // All parents and babies—regardless of lifestyle, parenting styles, or choices— deserve respect, tenderness and warmth.
The Dignity of Parenthood // All parents love their babies and want them to be happy, healthy, and in peace. All families, parents, and children deserve support in this fundamental, human hope.
Honoring Our First Relationships // Early relationships can influence areas of development including intelligence, immune function, growth and sleep patterns.
Making a Difference When It Matters Most // Infant massage is an effective, inexpensive, and simple solution to help prevent many community issues by focusing first on family-level interactions.
Universal Access // Researchers, experts, professionals, and organizations underscore our belief that the knowledge, skills, and actions necessary for healthy relationships should belong to each person, family, neighborhood, and community.
Thank you again for helping to promote nurturing touch and communication and ensure that parents, caregivers and children are loved, valued, and respected.
