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. Easing 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 psychotherapeutic 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. 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 and a cuppa. The course lasts for 6 weeks and can be booked for £55 or £10 for single ticket if dropping in (as providing you with flexibility is of utmost importance). You will be provided with a journal book and pen to use in the sessions. *Parents booking onto the 6-week course or 4 or more single sessions will also receive a mini gift to support your self-care practice.
