Beyond the bump
Becoming a new parent is an incredibly exciting experience but you do need to plan for it – otherwise, it can become overwhelming.
Join us for our newborn care workshop, helping you to prepare for your 4th Trimester.
Your baby’s 4th trimester starts at birth and goes on until your baby reaches 12 weeks of age. The term is used to describe a period of great change and development in your newborn bundle – as they adjust to life outside of the womb. It will also be a time of great change and development for you and your partner too – believe me – having your baby to care for outside the womb does present a huge challenge!
Beyond The Bump workshop is designed to give you evidence-based, realistic information to help you both manage. After the birth of your baby you will possibly feel as though you are on a continuous ‘night flight’ for the first few weeks and find it difficult to maintain any type of routine/schedule. It is important to be kind to yourselves and try to take your days one day at a time.
