Ten persons from across the province gathered to begin the process of becoming Certified Infant Massage Instructors with this 4 day intensive training. We wish them every success on their journey to certification.

Thanks to our volunteer babies and their lovely parents! We couldn’t have done it without you!

IAIM Infant Massage Instructor training will be offered in Ottawa in early 2019.
