Don’t sit at home surfing the internet; get out and about with other mums and babies!
Your baby has arrived, you are filled with joy! Then why do you feel so alone? Nurturing Mums is here to help…
Postnatal is the new antenatal; instead of just preparing for the birth that will never go according to plan, we are encouraging new mums to take the leap into sociable and shared parenthood after they’ve had their babies. Why? It’s a practical way to get out of the house, a fun way of engaging with others who share a new role and a comprehensive way towards sorting all of the incoming baby information into a parenting style that they are comfortable with.
Feedback from our mums has been overwhelmingly positive:
“The Nurturing Mums course was just brilliant.”
“The Nurturing Mums course met all my hopes.”
“I have so loved the Nurturing Mums postnatal course and am actually sad that it’s over!”
There is too much negativity surrounding motherhood and mums often feel guilty from the moment they have their babies; breastfeeding, co-sleeping, swaddling…so many choices! Our non-judgemental, supportive atmosphere is perfect to allow mums to open up about their decisions and methods and share their emotions openly and honestly, without feeling judged. Nurturing Mums wants mums to enjoy their experience and treasure it for the wondrous new adventure that it is!
Nurturing Mums postnatal groups are held in informal, friendly venues where mums can chat, learn and relax. Guest speakers share their expert advice and answer questions on key topics including sleep, weaning, relationships and infant development. The course set-up provides mums with an easy and engaging way of learning practical parenting skills. In addition, a professional photographer takes precious mum-and-baby shots to treasure and an indulgent pamper morning gives the new mums a longed-for beauty treatment! There are goody bags for each mum and competitions to win useful and popular baby-related prizes.
Our courses have been so popular in the first year that we are expanding and now offer our courses in two venues: East Finchley and Crouch End.
