About the Event

Welcome to Beyond Birth, a NEW Mindful Early Parenting group for you, a new parent, to be the weekly tonic that you need to keep your mind in balance.

Beyond Birth has been awarded the Lux Life Parent and Baby Award for 'Best Online Early Parenting Mindfulness Guide' for 2021!!!

The Beyond Birth sessions are being delivered by Katy Williams of Birthscapes, a trained Occupational Therapist, Perinatal Wellbeing, Attachment & Positive Parenting Educator and Birth Trauma Practitioner.

The course will be held over 6 weeks, from Friday 01st October - Friday 5th November, 10:30-12:00 (note: Block booking required, £55 for 6 weeks). 

Each weekly session has been designed to ease the transition into  parenthood. Think of it as hand-holding across a wobbly bridge into an unknown place, providing you with reassurance and help in finding your feet.

You will learn skills to calm, soothe and tune inwards and you will be guided to explore your identity as a parent (be this your first, or subsequent baby); connecting with yourself, your baby and loved ones.

Beyond Birth focuses on your emotional wellbeing and offers support, ideas and explores questions that you may have, to build resilience, cope with and accept the challenges and joys, as well as finding the confidence to trust in your instincts and reach out for help when needed.

You will learn skills that help you slow down, connect, and ease the emotional intensity of early parenting, so you can enjoy and bank those first precious months instead of them going by like a blur.

By coming along to the Beyond Birth group course, you will meet other likeminded parents, start to find and build your tribe as well as ensuring that each week, you focus on you, decompress and move forward into the next week feeling refreshed and nurtured, confident and empowered.

The sessions use a combination of mindfulness, relaxation, self-hypnosis, breathwork, journaling and other therapeutic techniques, as well as providing calming techniques to use with your baby.

The weekly themes are:

1. Nurture

2. Emotions

3. Connections

4. Healing and Recovery

5. Nourish

6. Transformation

What to expect in each session:


-A discussion

-Questions and journaling exercise

-Mindfulness and relaxation exercise

-Calm baby soothing


-Songs & Story time

-Sensory & nature play


Following the group session there will be time for a cuppa & a chat (please bring your own food & drink).

We also hope to have Carrie Roberts, a sling consultant from One of Those Baby Carriers join us as a special guest to provide advice & guidance in relation to babywearing. 

Members will be invited to join a private Beyond Birth Mindful Early Parenting Group online, so that you can start to connect with one another and form long-lasting friendships to support you throughout your parenting journey.

This event has a group. You’re welcome to join the group once you register for the event.
