Baby & You Classes

Our Baby and You programme follows on from antenatal classes and offer sound tips and strategies as you begin your journey into parenthood.

To see your baby smile, play and grow can be an extraordinary experience.  You will have feelings of tenderness and closeness and a sense of awe at the miracles of the ‘first milestones.

But with a new baby come uncertainties.  Your tiny bundle may rule the entire household through their routines, sleep patterns and behaviours.  This can be very challenging for a new parent.

Topics covered include:

  • Caring for a new-born including feeding, sleeping and settling and baby massage
  • The realities of the postnatal period
