WHAT WILL WE COVER over the 2 Saturdays on the 'Bump to Baby Prep' Course?

Session One (on Day 1) from 9.30 am to 3.30 pm covers:

  • getting to know your baby in the womb
  • helping you and your baby through the rest of pregnancy 
  • your baby and the stages of labour.

Session Two (on Day 2) from 9.30 am to 4pm covers:

  • helping you and your baby through labour and birth 
  • feeding your new baby
  • local resources, baby-friendly locations & sources of support

The course is delivered by Debbie Sutherland or Tracey Mansbridge (both are trained midwives & experienced trainers) & is co-facilitated by Clair Hobbs. The course is held at the Stratford Manor, just off the A46 between Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon.

Each couple attending will be given a pack of course handouts which includes key information on what to look out for in early labour, being aware of your baby's movements, as well as  information on local resources & sources of postnatal support local to where you live.

The Course includes refreshments; lunch is available to buy on-site, or you're very welcome to bring your own. We promise that you'll not be put on the spot, there'll be no awkward moments, nor any need for sharing embarrasing revelations over the 2 days!!

Following the 2-day Course, optional extra sessions are available for you:

  • a 'Dads2B' meet-up for fathers-to-be, co-ordinated by our linked 'birth-friendly' male practitioner! As a father & grandfather himself he'll not be shocked or shy of any subject! 
  • a 'MILK Matters' Workshop' - a more detailed look at  exploring & understanding feeding options. Especially useful for expectant mothers who'd like to understand more about how the physiology of breastfeeding works, and the skills that both babies and new mothers need to learn as part of the process. We'll also be discussing 'responsive' feeding in this session, and how this is important whether feeding naturally or via a bottle.    

NB/ (the dates & locations of these 2 workshop sessions are arranged with you during the main course, to fit in with what's most convenient for you!).

The 'Bump to Baby Prep' course is complementary to the afternoon or evening NHS 'Parentcraft' sessions, held either at Warwick Maternity Unit or in a local children's centre. We strongly support parents-to-be in accessing these free sessions as well, as the the content of these will focus more on the physical aspects of delivery, and will also enable meet-ups with other local people who are at roughly the same stage in pregnancy.

What our clients have to say

Amazing work, thank you so much for everything that you have done.

From Jane & baby D

Thanks for the baby massage Clair– C. has loved being massaged and it’s been great to have something I could follow-up with her at home. After a difficult birth and then me feeling so low and anxious, it definitely helped improve our relationship.
