Newborn Baby Care Workshops

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. Our exclusive Newborn Baby Care Workshop is practical and informative; preparing you for caring for your little one.

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 development plus all our experience as midwives and mothers.

A practical and fun interactive workshop you will learn about normal newborn behaviour and how to care for your baby – nappies, bathing, sleep, crying, soothing and settling and much more …

The workshop 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.

“It was really insightful and we feel just that little more in the loop about it all. You covered a lot of ground and we feel much better informed.
We didn’t know quite what to expect from the session but your delivery was really easy to take in and it was so encouraging, just the words we needed to hear! We came away saying “We’ve got this!”

Positive Feedback from Newborn workshop

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

“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.”

“Practical aspects very useful.”
