How we can help

Do you have questions about feeding, settling, sleeping? Are you having difficulties with settling your baby?

Newborn Course

There is so much conflicting advice around how to raise baby’s, this can leave parents feeling confused and unsure about what to do next. 

The transition into parenthood brings forth new feelings and emotions, perhaps unexpectedly!  Our newborn course is all about building your confidence as parents to trust your instincts.  We support you in the early weeks of parenthood as you and your baby’s relationship grows.  We have a focus on learning to read your baby’s cues and signals and how to manage their changing needs.

Our newborn course runs for 5 weeks, this gives you plenty of time to spend with us on a weekly basis as well as other parents with young babies all in a very relaxed supportive environment.

Each week we cover a different topic, and focus on how parents are feeling about their journey so far.

  • Breastfeeding with confidence
  • Newborn sleep cycles
  • Ways to settle newborns
  • Understanding newborn behavior
  • Infant massage
  • Developmental stages
  • Transition into parenthood – and much more!

Course fee:  $70
