Wednesday morning workshops are designed to support you and your baby through the first few months after birth (also known as the “fourth trimester” of pregnancy).

The transition into motherhood can be challenging – we are navigating new territory in our bodies, daily rhythms and lifestyle. The emphasis of these workshops is on constructive rest for new mothers, with simple baby massage routines to help you connect and bond with your newborn.

You will be encouraged to work through the stages of your postnatal recovery in your own time and also to include your baby.

Each session includes a presentation and discussion on a specific theme (e.g. nourishment, stability, sleep, pelvic floor).

After the session there is time for refreshments and more general chatting.

Between sessions you can access the Mother Nurture Online Course and a private Facebook group to ask questions or connect with other participants.

“I love how the class is for both the baby and the mum and how focused and natural it is – compared to all the ‘stuff’ that comes with other baby classes”

ZOE

“A lovely session with a brilliant balance between focusing on post-partum mum and ideas for yoga and massage with your baby. A great way to meet like minded mums and the coffee after was lovely.”

16 minutes of simple yoga for calming down and easing lower back pain.
The practice is gentle and suitable from about six weeks postpartum onwards, sooner if done with care. The class includes constructive rest, bridge pose, two soothing twists and knees-to-chest pose. For your baby we sing a soothing lullaby and take them on a flying trip to the Isles of Man, Skye and Mull.
