With Yvonne S. Hiebert, MSE, IMH-E®, CEIM

Learn calming techniques to relax and connect with your baby.

Registration required. Please call 608-437-5021.

For over 30 years, Yvonne has worked in center- and home-based settings with infants, young children, and their families. She has degrees in Early Childhood Development & Education and Early Childhood Special Education and has completed the UW-Madison Infant, Early Childhood, and Family Mental Health Certificate program. She is endorsed as an Infant Mental Health Specialist: IMH-E®. Yvonne learned about infant massage with her sons (now in their 20s) and found that the experience deepened her connection with them and helped everyone through some very fussy times. After personally experiencing the benefits of sharing massage with her boys, Yvonne became a certified educator of infant massage (CEIM) through Infant Massage USA (the official affiliate of the International Association of Infant Massage) in 2000 and received additional training through the medically-endorsed Gentle Touch® Parent-Child Program.
