Baby and You

Baby and You

 "Early parenthood is a life-changing experience into which we all go unrehearsed"

Babies grow quickly and they go through a variety of stages. The ‘Baby and You' programme is a great follow-on from antenatal classes and offers sound tips and strategies as you begin your remarkable journey into parenthood.  During the five sessions, a facilitator and guest speakers explore the first 3 months of your baby's life and give practical information about on topics including postnatal realities, identifying physical, emotional and relationship changes and how to cope with those changes, feeding, sleeping, infant care, baby massage, first aid and much more. 

A dad's evening is also offered that provides an opportunity to ask questions about baby's development and the transition to fatherhood.  A St John's representative will also discuss important first aid topics.

Many parents find the information and support in the ‘Baby and You' programme extremely helpful in managing the challenges, and making the most of the rewards, that a new baby brings to into their life. We believe strongly in the strength of the support networks in getting through those early months. Firm friendships are often formed between course participants, through shared experiences and understandings.  

Here are some comments from recent attendees: 

"Having all the different speakers was helpful and gave me opportunities to explore aspects I hadn't considered."

"The most helpful aspect was info presented by guest speakers (especially First Aid), and being able to talk with the course facilitator who was very supportive and knowledgeable."  

"Safe place, caring facilitators and participants"
