MUMMY MEET-UPs, supportive 6 weekly discussion group meet-ups for new Mums.
Becoming a new Mum is an incredible, yet intense time.
Meet other Mums at a similar stage in motherhood. Weekly supportive, socially distanced discussion groups. Baby’s needs are of course always cared for, but the focus here is also on Mum wellbeing.
This course of 6 weekly get-togethers is for all new Mums out there. Our sessions are relaxed and informal with zero pressure for you (or baby!) to conform. We focus on creating non-judgmental, relaxed space to discuss all things motherhood. Never before has having a new baby been so isolating, we are here to support you.
Discussions revolve around the Mums who attend; conversations will go where they need to go… but we also have some hugely beneficial new motherhood insights to share. Topics include the truth about baby brain, expectation versus reality, mum-guilt, building your village of support and importance of postpartum nourishment (full list can be found on our website).
Participants will also be gifted access to our recorded ‘on-demand’ baby massage course to watch at home.
Classes are taught in Collingham, near Wetherby
Thursdays (Leeds school term time only) 11am-12noon and 12.30pm-13.30pm
Course suitable for Mums with babies from birth to crawling.
Instructor is Maternal Wellness Educator and Postpartum Support Professional, Certified Infant Massage Instructor (through IAIM, which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives) and Reflexologist.
