Pips Newborn Workshops

This session is one of my absolute favourites to teach, not only because I get to coo over newborn babies - although that IS one of my favourite things to do! - but because I know first hand just what a difference it can make to your early months together.

As a Blossom and Berry trained Soothe, Settle and Sleep Instructor and Colic Consultant, I am here to support you as you and your little one get to know each other. You can attend this workshop once baby has arrived, or during your pregnancy, and it is best suited to babies from birth to 12 weeks of age.

 

The transition from womb to world is unsettling to your baby, and you are their safe space.

 

In the womb, your little one was warm, held, rocked, soothed by the sound of your heartbeat, and buoyant in amniotic fluid with food supplied through the umbilical cord.

 

Now that they are here, they are in a new world of bright lights, smells, sounds and temperature changes. They are now having to wear nappies, clothes, and communicate their need for food... and without the ability to speak, all that they can do is cry!

This workshop will give you a deeper level of understanding about newborn behaviour, and you will leave with a tool kit of techniques to use at home, from calming holds, winding techniques and massage strokes. You will learn to be more responsive to those subtle cues baby gives, and you will have the chance to take part in a baby massage routine (I bring along plenty of dolls for practice incase baby is sleeping or feeding, or if you are attending during pregnancy), and you will be sent a lovely printable handbook to support your first 6 months together. We will look at how to introduce soothing sequences to support better sleep, and - perhaps most important of all - how to look after your own needs whilst taking care of theirs.
