The Postnatal Course
The postnatal course takes place on Wednesdays but of course with the babies! It is every other week, over an 8 week period. The Course includes feeding support as required, a baby massage session to learn the techniques, a slings and carriers workshop with Tessa from Beyond Babyhood and a session with our women’s health physio Chrissie Edley about your postnatal body. It primarily gives you the time and space to discuss you and your postnatal recovery – everything else is about your baby, but this is about YOU!
The Prestwood postnatal course which has mums from local villages as well as High Wycombe, Aylesbury, Amersham, Chesham and Wendover takes place on Wednesday mornings at Nanfans Ballet School in Prestwood.
The Cookham postnatal course takes place on Wednesday afternoons In Cookham and has mums from Marlow, Maidenhead, Bourne End, Wooburn Green and surrounding villages.
The postnatal course includes plenty of tea, cake and biscuits which is even more crucial now that you’re taking care of a tiny human! (and doing a great job at it!) The mums also go for a pub lunch after the last session, which is usually a tradition that continues after the course has long finished!
The Full Combined Course
The full antenatal course plus the postnatal course. This includes phone/text support in between as needed from a midwife and follow up emails with further information in between classes. It also includes all course materials and goodie bag plus a comprehensive handout!
I know pregnancy can be a tricky time financially so I welcome payment by instalments, as long as it is paid by the first date of the course. I also subsidise places on the course for those who need it, just drop me an email. Single parents get the postnatal course for free when they do the antenatal course or hypnobirthing with me, because – I’ve been there!
