Baby & You

Baby & You is a three part, daytime course for parents to attend with their new baby (0 – 4 months).  This course is designed to build on the parenting skills that you have developed during your Child Birth Education class and the early days with your new baby.   This class is a time to ask questions and deal with issues as they arrive whilst helping you to understand and cope with your role as a new parent.

The three sessions* are:
