The New Parent Course

Become the best parents you can be

Once your baby has arrived, we invite you to join us on a 4 week journey through your final trimester. A unique journey designed to support you and your baby in those early weeks.

We offer practical, informed support tailored to your unique circumstances.

We use aspects of the Beyond Birth Guide to support your mind and body, help you to navigate new feelings and add in some little tricks using baby massage and reflexology to help support your baby’s systems.

1. Sleep

Sleep! That number 1 thing all new parents want!

Our first class helps you to understand the physiology of how your baby’s sleep is made up. The hows, whys and everything in between!

We take a gentle, holistic approach to sleep, allowing you to feel happy and confident in the choices you make, and give you the tools to adapt your environment, schedule and sleeping aids. Including a reflexology
session for your baby.

We also explore how to adapt your own sleep and rest patterns to fit in with your baby's routine. Supporting you to feel more rested.

2. Feed

We are ‘pro feeding’.

We are ‘pro feeding’. Breast, bottle, mixed. However you want to feed your baby - We will support you. We will walk you through the different options, methods, how to get that good latch, nipple shields and how to deal with your partner if they are a bit pushy. If baby is hungry, they need to be fed. Bottle is ok - if you are struggling with breast, don’t sweat it.

Learn winding techniques, when they need to be fed and how they are asking for it.

Discover how making small changes to feeding at night can have a very surprising impact on yours and baby’s sleep.

You will walk away with additional ideas and options for feeding as well as local contacts to help you in your journey.

3. You

You, the birthing parent and your partner

Our pelvic floor and postnatal exercise expert talks through the recovery process after a vaginal or cesarean birth.

We talk about embracing our new bodies, and open up about the embarrassing things too! A great way to realise you are not alone, and shout out loud ‘why did no one tell me’?!

We then delve further into relationships, self-identity, compassion, postnatal feelings, and even sex and relationships.

Having a baby Is a big adjustment, it's good to open up and bond with other new parents and feel connected.

4. Play

What is play for a baby and what should I be doing to aid their development?

Sleep, play, eat repeat. Understand the milestones and developmental changes your baby makes through their first 6 months and what play activities are best for each stage.

You will get a hands-on shortened baby massage session and play activities to develop all 8 (yes 8) senses effectively.

At this early stage some of the simplest activities are the most important. That black and white book the hospital gives you is actually really valuable in those early days.

You will walk away with knowledge about all 8 senses, how to develop them in your little one and fun activities that your baby will consider as play.

With plenty of opportunity to ask questions, participate or just listen. It is important to surround yourself with people having the same experience, whilst in a warm and relaxing environment.
