Becoming a parent can be tough; that’s why we think you deserve a bit of a helping hand in those early times.
This course is designed to give you practical ways to help you parent more effectively, whilst also giving you the social support you need as you find your feet in your new role.
We’ll teach you baby massage techniques that you can use wherever you are with your baby, that will help alleviate common problems such as colic symptoms, trapped wind and constipation, as well as promoting positive attachment, strengthening muscle tone and improving the quality of sleep. In turn this will help encourage your own confidence in parenting your baby by giving you tangible tools to help soothe them, encourage positive interactions with your baby, reduce postnatal depression rates and…improve quality of sleep!
We also want to make sure you’re well supported during those all-important early days of parenthood which is why we actively encourage you to make friends, chat and support each other with a dedicated brew time after the physical component of the class. Each week has a loosely themed topic of discussion but as the priority is supporting you on your journey this may flex to meet what’s been happening to you as the weeks progress. Example topics include labour debrief, maternal mental health, following your instincts, baby sleep, feeding, relationships and returning to work.
This course is suitable for all babies from 4-6 weeks old until crawling. Course dates follow Stockport schools’ term dates and therefore number of weeks and cost per term will fluctuate. All caregivers are welcome however if the adult in attendance isn’t the mother please be aware that a large part of the group will have a maternal focus.
