THE SOCIAL BABY COURSE (FOR New Parents)

This is an informal course over a period of six weeks. It is a great opportunity for you to meet other new parents with whom you may be able to share similar experiences with over a cuppa.

Each week there will be a guest speaker who will host an engaging session for you and your little one/s. These sessions include; baby massage, first aid for babies, Post-natal recovery and exercise with a Physiotherapist, singing and signing with your baby and Mindfulness for parents.

This course is primarily for first time parents with babies up to 5 months of age. However, if you feel you would benefit from the course for example if you have recently moved to the area, have Post-natal depression or have a reduced support network, you will also be welcome to attend.

Course Dates:

  • 31st Mar -12th Apr 22
  • 19th May - 23rd Jun 22
  • 30th Jun - 4th Aug 22
  • 11th Aug - 15th Sep 22
  • 22nd Sep - 27th Oct 22
  • 3rd Nov - 8th Dec 22

There are only 10 places on each course so early booking is recommended.

Please email: visions@rutland.gov.uk to book your place on the course. Please include your name/your child's name and DOB/contact telephone number and postcode.

Don't worry about being late to the sessions - we appreciate that things don't always go to plan with a new baby!

Please note, this course is restricted to families living in Rutland only. 

We look forward to meeting you (and your partner if they can make it) and your new arrival/s!
