Description

 

Our 'Your New Baby' course is the perfect opportunity for you to venture out, with baby, in those early weeks and meet new parents experiencing a similar journey as you. We can answer your questions and help troubleshoot any difficulties you may have.  And get the opportunity to join our community and coffee catch-up support group.

Babies are very welcome. Your baby can feed, sleep, cuddle and play throughout the session. It’s not a problem if your baby cries or is unsettled - we are completely baby friendly.

 This is a structured, but informal course, and our educators are highly skilled and have vast experience in working with new parents:

 Some of the topics covered in this 3-hour course:

  • Life with your new baby
  • Precious sleep - your baby's sleep and your sleep
  • Your crying baby - practical tools and techniques
  • Your baby's development - what and when?
  • 'Secure Attachment' and why it's so important for growing healthy brains
  • Taking care of YOU
  • Where to go to get support
  • Troubleshooting and Questions - is there anything you want to ask?

 At birthEd we want to create the best learning environment we can for you, your partner and baby. Our small class sizes mean that you’ll get an opportunity to have the best face-to-face training we can provide, and have all your questions answered.

 We understand that welcoming a new baby into your life, and family, marks a time of great change. Studies show that good social support, plays a key role in helping women cope with the transition to motherhood, and limiting or preventing the effects of perinatal depression. After attending our Your New Baby course, you will be invited to join our coffee group and be part of the birthEd community, where you will have an opportunity to meet other new parents.

Your New Baby is $30 for you, your support partner and of course, your baby.
