New Baby Care

 

You’ve done the ante-natal course, you’re well prepared for the birth of your new baby - but what happens when you take baby home?   


All the preparation in pregnancy is aimed towards safe delivery of your baby, but there is
nothing available to help you prepare for the most important job of your life, that is, being a parent! Well that has changed now with our new course to help you to prepare for that vital role. Our team, led by Niamh Hannan (a registered psychologist) and including our parenting panel and a practicing midwife, has designed this comprehensive course to teach you valuable skills to guide you through parenting your newborn. From the normal anxieties new parents experience in the last months before baby arrives, those first few days and weeks of caring for your newborn right through to parenting for the first twelve months, our course will help you to build your confidence and equip you with practical tips and guidance to help you in your parenting role. 

 

Fathers are often forgotten in the lead up to delivery, with all the attention on mum-to-be. But fathers have a very important role to play, both during labour and when mum and baby arrive home from hospital, and of course for the rest of their lives. This course pays attention to the anxieties that dads-to-be experience, their questions, their hang-ups and fears - so that expectant fathers leave feeling more confident about their roles and how they can play an active part right from the start.  

 

Our coach will visit you in your own home and present a private coaching session on everything you need to know about parenting for the first year.   

 

Topics include but are not limited to: 

 

Bringing baby home from hospital
Those first few days - what to expect
Feeding - breast V bottle - your choice (a frank discussion)
Bathing, changing nappies - the practical stuff
Why is baby crying? What to do…
