Beyond Birth Classes
What is a Beyond Birth class?
Beyond Birth is an indoor group session for parents with babies of any age up to 12 months, or who are not yet confident walkers. The session is run by The Milk Hub in collaboration with holistic sleep coach & parenting expert Lizzie Noble from Parenting Explorers.
The Beyond Birth classes focus on supporting parental mental health and well-being in the postnatal period, using a combination of mindful and wellbeing parenting tools.
The sessions provide support for parents as they transition to life with a new baby. Together, we explore different ideas and strategies which have been expertly blended by professionals to support your mental health and wellbeing with life as a new baby. The transitional period when a new baby arrives is one of the most challenging and transformative times in our lives, and with the support of the tools discussed in the class – we will help you to build resilience to help you cope with the challenges and enjoy the feel-good moments in parenting.
This is your postnatal community, your parenting village.
What previous attendees have said about the Beyond Birth course:
“The sessions are great – it’s the first time I’ve felt like I’ve been surrounded by like minded people. I’m learning some amazing techniques and it’s helped me way more than anything else.” Mummy N
“The sessions are an opportunity to meet and share about early motherhood in a safe space…we start with a grounding exercise and an opportunity to share our happy and challenging moments from the previous week. Then there is a focus for each session which is led by the course leaders with some guided relaxation. I have throughly enjoyed the course and grown.”
