Aimed at mums to be who are due very soon and new mummies.

Understand how your baby’s digestion works, what their sleep patterns are and what you can do to recreate the womb.

It’s packed with hours of content for mums to understand their newborn development, techniques to settle and soothe baby, baby massage strokes and baby yoga movements to help wind and lots of self care tips for mums too.

There is also a section on Mummy Care. With self care advice, meditations and content on returning to exercise and pelvic floor health, it helps you to adjust during this transition period too.

This fourth trimester course, which has hours of content. is £19.99.

Not only do you get lifetime access to the course to learn in your own time but you also get access to a private Facebook group dedicated to mothers during the fourth trimester where I will be regularly appearing to offer support, guidance and answer your questions.

SeBeau Health Visiting

Our Antenatal classes are unique in that their focus is on preparing you for the practicalities of caring for your new baby. Whilst most antenatal classes focus on preparing you for labour and birth, we feel that it is just as important to be prepared for those early weeks and months once you take baby home. Written and delivered by Kim a mum and experienced Health Visitor based on the thing’s parents have often told her they wished they had been told before they took baby home.
