Newborn Baby Care Workshops

heartsOur exclusive Newborn Baby Care Workshop is practical and informative; preparing you for caring for your little one. Impartial and evidence based. Helping you and your baby adjust to life on earth – including baby soothing techniques such as baby massage. 

 “We loved it, and it gave us lots of confidence.  I would recommend it to anyone.”

Preparing for birth is really important, but as midwives we realise that a very important part after the birth (the baby!) is often left out.

This workshop aims to provide expectant parents with confidence, knowledge and skills to care for their newborn in the early days. The focus is on you as a parent being the expert on your unique baby.

Impartial and evidence based on the latest research on brain and emotional development for babies plus all our experience as midwives and mothers.

A practical and fun interactive course you will learn how to care for your baby, as well as relax and embrace the changes that parenting brings

For baby

  • Learn how to change nappies, care for their skin and umbilical cord
  • Safely hold and carry
  • Deal with crying, soothe and settle
  • Get more sleep in the early days
  • Aid the bonding process for Mum, Dad and baby
  • What you actually need to buy for your baby
  • Normal newborn behaviour
  • A simple baby massage routine
  • How to spot the signs that your baby is unwell

For you as a new parent

  • Relaxation and breathing techniques to adjust to changes

The course complements our Hypnobirthing course, which focuses on pregnancy and birth, so you can be fully prepared. But it can also be taken as a stand alone workshop.

Feedback June 2017

“Practical aspects very useful.”

“Overall information was excellent. Reassurance and mindfulness.”

“Best bits were practical exercises – nappies and swaddling. The non-prescriptive approach.  Gave us information, so we were informed, but left us to make the ultimate decisions. Chance to ask as many questions as we wanted.”
