Courses at The Nest
I am excited to be teaming up with The Nest parenting hub in the centre of Holmfirth to offer 4 week WEEKEND courses to new parents!
The courses offer the same fantastic Raising Babies content, condensed down into 4 weeks and for a reduced price! Scroll down for the full course curriculum and venue details.
The next course takes place on Saturday 10th June and runs until Saturday 8th July (no session on 24th June), from 1-3pm.
Week 1: Talking about birth experiences, the postpartum period so far and settling into life with your baby. Includes an introductory baby massage and reflexology session.
Week 2: We’ll talk about realistic developmental milestones, baby play and what to expect in the first year. We'll explore tummy time activities and have a mini sensory session.
How to calm a crying baby: Practical strategies that really work and identifying underlying causes (covers colic, burping, reflux and looking out for allergies).
Week 3: Understanding baby sleep: Nap routines and understanding what’s normal, establishing bedtime routines and looking for sleep cues.
Includes a postnatal yoga session to stretch out sore backs and shoulders.
Week 4: Infant first aid essentials (covers infant CPR, choking, burns, seizures, fevers, head injuries and more) and recognising common childhood illnesses.
Includes an introductory baby sign language session.
