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

  £30 per couple / £25 if doing our hypnobirthing course.

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.

Taught by Katheryn,an experienced midwife, hypnobirthing practitioner and a mother of three.  She has specialist training to perform the NHS Newborn and Infant Physical Examination (NIPE), and is a Baby Massage Instructor and Breastfeeding counsellor and Peer Supporter.

Please note that this workshop does not include breastfeeding.  This is covered in our Breastfeeding workshop

Feedback from our Newborn Care Workshops:

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

“Overall information was excellent. Reassurance and mindfulness.”

“The best bits were practical exercises – nappies and swaddling. The non-prescriptive approach.  Katheryn gave us information so we were informed, but left us to make the ultimate decisions. We had the chance to ask as many questions as we wanted.”

“The practical aspects of this workshop were very useful.”
