covid-19 policy & INFO
23 March 2020
As the situation we find ourselves in progresses we have decided to shut the doors to HQ for the moment.
Our class and workshop leaders will no longer be able to use HQ to record their live classes or downloadable classes.
BUT with that being said, we have launched DILAM @HOME and still have Zoom and Vimeo open for use. We will be facilitating our class and workshop leaders running classes from home, all done remotely.
As before our in house classes, baby massage and mindful meditation, will be available live online or for download, and hypnobirthing classes will continue to stay open and available live online.
Take care and stay safe

Following on from the government update today we wanted to let you know that we will be staying open as long as possible.
It’s important to us that we carry on offering the support you need if you want it.
The classes run by us – baby massage, mindful meditation and hypnobirthing – are continuing.
As some of our classes are run by teachers who are running their own businesses it is their decision if they keep on running the classes they hold at DILAM HQ. We will let you know as soon as we do if anyone has decided not to run a class or workshop but at the moment everyone is carrying on as normal.
Your safety is still the most important thing to us and all our teachers continue to sanitise all mats and equipment after each use. We ask that, as before, you wash your hands on entering and leaving HQ or use the hand sanitiser provided.

In light of the uncertainty we all face in our daily lives with the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we wanted to let you know of the steps we have taken at DILAM HQ over the past week to ensure we’re providing as safe an environment as possible for those of you without symptoms that want to continue attending classes. Our number one priority is the safety of our customers and class leaders.
Hygiene is critical
There’s still a lot we don’t know about Coronavirus, but it’s clear that maintaining good hygiene is absolutely critical. With this in mind, you & your child will be asked to wash your hands or use the hand sanitiser provided when entering and leaving HQ.
All soft toys and books have been taken out of use and if your child brings any of their own we ask that you keep them out of the reach of other children. All hard toys will be sanitised after every use. Most of our class providers use their own toys and have hygiene measures in place which you can find on their social media.
All general blankets and cushions have been taken out of use. Many of our class & workshop providers who use them may ask you to bring your own if you’d like to use a blanket or cushion in line with their own hygiene steps, and we ask you to do the same. If you’re attending a mindful meditation session any of the specialist cushions that are used are washed after every session.
As always, HQ and the facilities will be cleaned regularly and the floor steam cleaned as always. Mats are sanitised after every use.
We will be keeping a close eye on information coming from Public Health England and will actively seek updates too.
It’s important to us that we continue to provide the classes and support you want and need throughout this unexpected time as much as is possible. Our social media community isn’t going anywhere and our email will always be open should you have any questions.
Our hypnobirthing courses can be provided privately and online if you would prefer this to a class setting and Chloe can provide private baby massage sessions too. Natalie is providing online support for anxiety management and mindfulness meditation via social media when she can & all her videos can be accessed at any time on her social channels.
We’ll continue to monitor the situation, make changes and update you as needed.
