Mindful Early Parenting Course
Beyond Birth is the award winning Mindful Early Parenting course created by Sophie Burch, aka The Mamma Coach.
Designed to be the weekly tonic that you need to keep your life in balance, with each session easing the transition into parenthood.
Beyond Birth guides you to explore your identity as a parent, and to connect with yourself, your baby and your loved ones and ensures that you take time to nurture yourself as well as your baby. By attending, you will be empowered to trust in your instincts and to reach out for help when needed.
You (and your partner) will learn skills to calm, soothe and tune inwards. These skills will help you to slow down and connect and they will ease the emotional intensity of early parenting. You will then be more able to enjoy and bank those first precious months, instead of finding that they go by like a blur.
By attending these sessions we are better equipped to deal with the emotional stresses and strains that we often experience as parents, particularly when traversing the early stages of parenthood.
Sessions use a combination of mindfulness, relaxation, wellbeing journaling and other therapeutic techniques over the 6 weekly sessions.
The weekly themes are:
4. Healing & Recovery
What to expect in each session:
A wellbeing talk
Questions & Journaling exercise
Mindfulness & Relaxation exercise
Calm Baby Soothing
Chat (& time for a cuppa)
From 2022 sessions have been held outdoors within the beautiful Gibside National Trust Estate, with your ticket including entry into Gibside. Come together with other parents / caregivers surrounded by nature within a "secret garden" reserved just for us. Beyond Birth will start again at Gibside from Spring 2023, and over winter sessions will be held indoors at lovely welcoming venues within the North East (see my bookings page).
I also offer 1:1 support to new parents, delivering the Beyond Birth program to you directly, online from the comfort of your home and private sessions with parents based in the North East of England, from beautiful venues, including The Wabi Sabi Studio in the heart of Hexham on Sunday afternoon.
