Practical Baby Care

Not your ordinary antenatal class. This 3 hour practical and fun workshop is all about preparing you for the day when you first hold your baby in your arms.

Suitable for parents-to-be at any stage of their pregnancy , the session includes:

  • Baby Care Basics – a hands-on chance to learn how to hold your baby, dressing, nappy changing, cord care, bathing, winding. Expectations around feeding and sleeping are also explored.
  • Baby Safety – make sure you are up to date with recommendations and guidance for keeping your baby safe.
  • Parenting choices – reuseable and disposable nappies, babywearing, routines and being baby-led, your choices are uncovered!
  • Baby Calming – learn to interpret baby’s cues and techniques for calming your baby’s cries using the concept of the ‘Fourth Trimester’.
  • Role of dads – how dads can bond with their little ones and how they can be actively involved in caring for them

Our antenatal workshop will enable you to explore your choices so that the decisions you make for the care of your baby are individual to YOU, YOUR unique family and YOUR individual baby.
