Daisy Birthing Baby Tinies

Daisy Baby Tinies is a weekly postnatal class for mum and baby in the ‘fourth trimester’ to help you learn how to use baby massage and movement to aid calming, soothing and connection with your baby.

When it comes to the new days and weeks of motherhood, any number of emotions can overwhelm us: Joy, anxiety, delight, fatigue, happiness, uncertainty, isolation or perhaps even low mood or challenging feelings. Daisy Baby Tinies helps new mums enjoy a safe and supported first few months with baby. This natural first step with baby on your continuous perinatal support journey takes the best elements of baby massage, baby yoga, postnatal yoga and mum & baby classes and support groups and wraps all of these together in a powerful 5 element model that allows you the confidence that comes from realising you can figure it out together.

Daisy Baby Tinies classes are for postnatal mums and their baby only and are booked in blocks of 6 weeks.  Tinies is for babies from 6 weeks to around 5 months. Each class is 1 hour long and costs £45 for the 6 weeks.

Your Tinies class is on a Thursday morning at 10am at Studio Sixteen, Otley Old Road, Adel, Leeds, LS16 6HN.  The next term starts on the 10th January 2019 and you can book your place here.

Smart Cells

Your baby’s umbilical cord is a valuable source of stem cells which can be collected and stored. These cells may be used as a crucial part of treating or curing an illness. Cord blood is the blood that remains in the placenta and umbilical cord after a baby is born, which are both usually thrown away after the birth. However, as this is a rich source of stem cells, it can be collected, processed and stored to be used later for potential treatment.

Based just outside London, Smart Cells are the UK’s first cord blood storage company. Collecting and storing cord blood from newborn babies has become more well-known over recent years, but many are still unaware of the fantastic opportunities it can give your child and their siblings throughout their lives.

More than 80 medical conditions, ranging from cerebral palsy to sickle cell disease and many more in between, can currently be treated using cord blood stem cells.

Smart Cells are currently leading the way in advances into stem cell research to identify more conditions and symptoms that can be treated using cord blood, with 20 stem cell samples released for clinical use since 2005 – this is more than any other private cord blood company in the UK.

Pregnancy and starting a family are full of special moments that you don’t want to miss. You only have one chance to store your baby’s cord blood. Contact Smart Cells to find out more.

Learn more about Smart Cells at their website or on social media:
