“Germaine has a real gift for instructing infant massage. Germaine’s manner is soothing and accepting of sleep deprived and vulnerable new moms and dads. She creates a safe space to learn to massage our babies. She gently keeps the pace of the class moving while always keeping the babies care (fussiness, need to nurse etc.) first in mind.” ~ Patty
