Research Interests:

The main goal of my research is to study the relationship of infant massage and parental satisfaction, childcare, childbearing attitudes, maternal anxiety and parental expectations. There are several benefits, psychological and physiological, not only for the baby but also for the caregiver. While doing the massage parents tend to know and recognize the baby better, e.g. what he needs, what calms him, etc.

Ongoing Projects:

The importance of infant massage in baby’s development and parental competencies (PhD project)
