The course doesn’t end there!
Preparing for those early weeks and months with your new baby is just as important as preparing for birth.
With this in mind, this course includes:
A 2.5 hour group Zoom session all about postnatal planning and Caring for your baby.
In this session you will:
Create a postnatal plan designed to nourish you during those first foggy weeks post birth. You’ll consider everything from your ‘village’ that’s going to show up & help you, to food you might like to eat. We will discuss local professional support available [I will share all of my recommendations & resources compiled over the last 10 years working as a midiwfe in the local area] & things you can be preparing in pregnancy to set you up to thrive in new parenthood
Caring for your baby – Nappy changing, bathing, sleeping and what to expect from your newborn’s behaviour. Anything you want to know about caring for your new baby will be answered!
There will be a decent break midway through for you to come away from the screen, refresh and socilaise with the group on your return.
