Welcome to 'Bonding With Baby'

Hello!  I am Laura Henderson - a Certified Infant Massage Instructor and a Rhythm Kids Teacher - and the founder of ‘BONDING WITH BABY’.  In 2011, I set up my small local service in Aberdeen, Scotland running one day per week.  5 years on - I am pleased to be offering courses Monday to Friday & am excited to have been able to provide INFANT MASSAGE and RHYTHM KIDS COURSES to over 1,500 parents with babies in and around Aberdeen City & Shire. I believe in the importance of parents supporting each other & currently offer 12 small-group courses across 6 venues, with the hope that parents can meet other parents with babies in their local area.

On my 'Bonding With Baby' courses, I invite parents to 'Come relax & have fun with your little one'. Each 'INFANT MASSAGE' and 'RHYTHM KIDS' Course is baby-led and designed to be supportive and relaxing for parents to attend, therefore if your baby has any needs during class, such as feeding; changing; soothing, I ask that you respond to their needs how you would at home.  Both courses:

  • are parent-based education programmes - teaching parents skills which develop over the 6 week course and enhance the quality of time we spend with our baby (or babies!) at home 
  • provide relevant parenting & local information to support what we learn in weekly sessions
  • empower parents to provide nurturing touch with regular practice at home from the early weeks......and for years to come!  

In 2015, I was ecstatic to hear that 'BONDING WITH BABY' had been NOMINATED & VOTED FOR BY LOCAL PARENTS at the 'What's on 4 Junior' International Awards and on attending the Awards Ceremony I WON THE BEST POST-NATAL ACTIVITY IN THE UK!!!  The excitement continued this year as I was Nominated by local parents again this year in the 'Best Pre/Post Natal Activity' category!

So if you feel ready to start attending groups with your baby then 'Come relax & have fun with your little one' on my Bonding With Baby courses.  I look forward to meeting you & your little one(s) soon!

Kindest regards,


Certified Infant Massage Instructor & Rhythm Kids Teacher
