Beyond Birth is the award winning Mindful group for you, as new parent / caregiver and your infant (aged 0-12 months). It is designed to be the weekly tonic that you need to keep your mind in balance, with each weekly session easing the transition into parenthood. Think of it as hand-holding across a wobbly bridge into an unknown place, reassuring you and providing you with help in finding your feet. You will learn skills to slow down, calm, soothe and tune inwards; and you will be guided to explore your identity as a parent (be it your first, or subsequent baby), connecting with yourself, your baby and loved ones. With such skills helping to 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. These sessions use a combination of mindfulness, relaxation, self-hypnosis and other wellbeing techniques delivered over 6 weeks. Some aspects you may be familiar with, and others not. You don’t need to have heard of or tried any of this before now to find it easy to use and simple to apply to life with your baby. Learning how to engage in these practices whilst with baby is invaluable as so often finding regular alone time can be difficult if not impossible. Coming along to these sessions helps you carve out time just for you where you can focus on your own needs and give yourself permission to let go. The weekly themes are: 1. Nurture 2. Emotions 3. Connections 4. Healing and Recovery 5. Nourish 6. Transformation What to expect in each session: ● Introductions ● A wellbeing talk ● Questions and journaling exercise ● Mindfulness and relaxation exercise ● Calm baby soothing ● Affirmations ● Gratitude circle ● Chat At the end of each session there will be time to stay for a chat, cuppa and something sweet to eat as well as time for baby to play. The course lasts for 6 weeks and can be booked for £55. You will be provided with a journal book and pen to use in the sessions. Sessions are held at Explorers Forest School, Wylam from 02nd July in their gorgeous new building with bi-folding doors that bring the outside inside. There is car parking nearby. Please bring your own yoga mat. You will be emailed further instructions before the course begins and you will have the opportunity to join a WhatsApp group for members where photos are shared and you can connect with other parents. Receive £5 off your first session with the code BBWYLAM at the checkout.
