Caring for you as we would for ourselves

The Thalasso/Therapeutic Baby Bath®

Created by Sonia Krief, the Thalasso/Therapeutic Baby Bath is a treatment for newborn babies. It offers a space for emotional expression and the freedom to move in a familiar environment: water. It provides a time of listening and relaxation... but also a return to the memories and sensations experienced during pregnancy and birth.

For whom?

These baby baths are for:

  • premature babies
  • babies born by caesarean section
  • babies delivered using a vacuum or forceps
  • baby and parents are separated at birth
  • cases of difficult deliveries

But more importantly, these baths are for all babies to help to reassure them and overcome anxiety.

By whom?

The bath is given by a nurse from our maternity unit, a babywearing instructor and certified in Thalasso / Therapeutic Baby Bath (approved by Sonia Krief).

Practical information

One session lasts approximately two hours, and includes taking a detailed history, the bath time itself, followed by skin-to-skin contact with the parents.
