The Baby Brain Postnatal course is designed to support you through early parenthood, connecting you with other new parents and providing you with information to navigate new parent life.
The course will be held OUTSIDE, with weekly walks and discussion themed around baby development, making decisions as a new parent, some of the challenges you may face as a new parent, as well some of the highs.
Support will be provided by an experienced postnatal practitioner, qualified in new parent education, and the course provides an opportunity to connect with other new parents in your local area, and continue that conversation on your own WhatsApp group.
Each week, you will receive educational resources and tools to help you on your journey, in addition to the weekly meets to chat about the themes and connect with other new parents.

Please ensure that for walks you have everything that you need available for the duration, including a pushchair or sling for your baby. If the weather is dry, we can hold our sessions sat down socially distanced outside, so on those dates which we will chat about in the WhatsApp discussion beforehand, please bring a suitable blanket to sit on with your baby.
There is also an opportunity to stay after the session for a coffee and a bite to eat at The Coop if booked in advance: Please get in touch with Hazel at the Coop to arrange this.
