Emma runs an introduction to the course. Get to know the other mums and your little ones. Chat about your journey so far, what you have enjoyed and what you have found hard, what you have found useful and get tips and advice from others.
Week TWO, Play For Parenting:
We invite Clare from Oliiki to come and talk to you about how fun parenting can be, and how every day play can lead to wonderful learning for you and baby together.
Week THREE, Birth Stories:
ALL birth stories are valid. No matter how you had your baby from a home birth, in a pool, a planned or emergency Caesarean section or anything in between it is the start of your parenting journey and it can impact positively or negatively on that journey.
We invite Julia from Birth Trauma Resolution Herts to listen to your birth story, if you are happy to share and talk about how your journey started.
Week FOUR, Postnatal Recovery:
Pregnancy and birth makes changes in your body that sometimes you do not even realise until someone points them out to you. These changes can sometimes make it difficult to recover in the way you want to, they can also impact on your parenting experience. So come along to week four and speak to our expert Alex who runs The Penn Clinic in Hatfield to hear about what's normal and can be dealt with at home and what's not so normal and may mean you need to seek further specialist help for.
