What We Do
At our lovely mom and baby wellness centre, we offer midwife services on appointment, stimulation groups & baby massage classes
Tshameka, meaning ‘we play’ in Setswana aims at providing children with stimulating and versatile activities at home.These boxes have been designed for the time-strapped and moms who cannot make it to stimulation groups for different reasons. The boxes have no specific age category as we believe that all babies develop at their own pace.
They are versatile and offer between 4-9 activities. The boxes are handmade with love and have pre-packed activities. Both the child and parent are encouraged to be creative in how they execute their activity boxes to create tailor-made activities to each childs need.
We have a qualified baby massage teacher on board who offers weekly classes to moms with babies under 12 months. Baby massage is advised for newborn babies to
Our stimulation groups are run by a qualified Occupational Therapist with a special interest in pediatrics. We aim at providing the optimal environment and stimuli to encourage your baby to explore and learn. Throughout my years in assessing and intervening with children, I have found an alarming correspondence between understimulation and school performance. On the other end of the spectrum, we see children who are unable to attain optimal school performance due to being predisposed to overstimulating play groups being run by unqualified professionals.
As Occupational Therapists, we believe that every child deserves equal opportunities. Our stimulation groups are graded by levels and aimed at thriving children, the children with development delay as well as disability. In this way, we provide inclusive stimulation to all children, and afford our moms with a chance for social interaction, too.
We keep our classes small, to ease into social play and to not be overwhelming to our little cubs. In his way, we are able to track each child’s development and intervene where necessary to help our children to thrive. It is also a lovely opportunity for moms to meet and socialise over a warm drink and some snacks for both mom and bub. Our classes range from 6 weeks- 3 years old.
We have a lovely, well experienced and well learned midwife at our centre that takes bookings by appointment.
