This online course is packed full of information on newborn development so you can understand your newborn baby, making it easier for you to help your baby transition from womb to world. 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.

The body adapts in so many ways during pregnancy. Release of the hormone relaxin leads to looser ligaments and in turn joints, plus major accommodations occur in the spine for weight distribution. Many of you ladies want to carry on leading an active lifestyle whilst pregnant but sometimes it is all just too uncomfortable and you have aches and niggles.

Well I am here to help you with those aches and niggles and remain fit and active for as long as possible enjoying the gym, walking, cycling whatever your chosen activity is – it might just be playing with your older children.

If I still haven’t convinced you how about this for some reasons why…….

  • Improved sleep quality
  • Lowers stress and anxiety levels
  • Lessens swelling of the joints
  • Alleviates muscle pain and cramps
  • Reduces nerve pain
  • Reduces the baby’s stress hormones

Appointments available now. £40 for single appointment of £215 for 6.

So if you are pregnant and want to know more, or a friend of yours is let them know and get in touch to book

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.

SHH Safe Health Happy

Tactile communication is our first form of communication. We begin receiving tactile signals in the womb, and then touch plays a critical role in parent-child relationships before verbal communication is possible. It is, in essence, the first sense we acquire, and it is astonishingly effective.

Aroma is a vital component of the Aromatouch Technique because it instantaneously prompts powerful emotional, physiological, and biochemical responses.

Safe Healthy Happy also offers baby massage plus classes, introducing a little more to your normal baby massage sessions.
