Postnatal Course

My Little Bubba in association with AllAboutAntenatal is offering postnatal support to help navigate the months following birth.

Each session explores a different postnatal theme and the aim is to help (1) support you in the new challenges you will face as your baby gets older and (2) provide a forum to meet other mums (and dads!) and develop your social and support network.

Rather than booking onto the whole course, we felt it was more useful that you book onto each session separately, and therefore you attend only those sessions which you think will be useful for you.

We do not have an online booking system yet (watch this space!), so register your interest and we will contact you with dates and more information.

Currently all sessions are on Zoom, but we aim to hold them in person as soon as we can.

The following sessions are available:

1. Baby Massage (3 sessions)

Baby Massage is designed to build your confidence and understanding of massage relaxation techniques. In 3 sessions, you will learn a sequence of baby massage strokes that you can use at home or out and about, to suit you and your baby. This course is suitable for babies and their parents or carers from newborn up to 8 weeks old up. So come along, and join our small interactive sessions run by friendly trained facilitators.

It is a huge step going back to work, at whatever age your child is.

8. Social

When circumstances allow, we will be running a social for parents to meet up. Having a support network is so important when you have children, other parents who are going through it at the same time, or have already gone through it. You will meet people at each session, however, we will also run a social gathering to enable local parents to meet each other and create that support network.
