Parenting Workshops

My New Baby - New Parent Online Workshop

This online 40 minute 1:1 workshop provides an opportunity for new parents to discuss their new baby, focusing in particular on:

  • Normal newborn behaviour
  • Infant feeding
  • Sleep expectations
  • Your questions
Upon booking you will be sent a consultation form to complete, detailing what you wish to cover in particular to ensure we answer your questions.
 

Supported by Sian Aldis (IBCLC, Holistic Sleep Coach & Mindful Breastfeeding Practitioner) parents are given reassurance, information and support to fill them with confidence going forward.

These sessions are not in place of a breastfeeding assessment or sleep coaching service, but an opportunity to discuss your concerns and learn about normal infant behaviour from an infant feeding and sleep specialist.

From Womb to World - Antenatal Workshop

There is often a lot of focus on pregnancy and birth, with little time to think about what will happen once your baby arrives.

Together with discussion and teaching of the biological and physical aspects of breastfeeding, our unique From Womb to World antenatal workshop includes a focus on relaxation, bonding, breathing exercises, journaling and trusting our instincts.

Families are given time to explore their thoughts and ideas around breastfeeding and can leave feeling knowledgeable and empowered going forward.

  • How Breastfeeding works
  • What to expect in the first days post birth
  • Normal infant behaviour 
  • How to know if things are going well
  • When to seek further support
  • Discussion around any concerns
  • Mindful Breastfeeding
  • Questions to ask in hospital
  • Guided relaxations
  • Pregnancy, labour and postnatal yoga for you and your partner
  • Sleep information for your newborn
  • Comprehensive course folder for you to keep to support you post birth

This 6 hour workshop, taught by Sian Aldis (IBCLC, Holistic Sleep Coach & Mindful Breastfeeding Practitioner) and Luisa Lyons (Specialist Midwife, IBCLC, Tongue tie Practitioner & Yoga Instructor), takes place over 2 x 3 hour sessions.

Parents are equipped with the knowledge they need to breastfeed in the way they wish, with a focus on relaxing into parenthood and navigating the 4th trimester with their new baby.
