These sessions are for mothers and babies.
They aim to strengthen bonds in the early days of
motherhood and help mothers get to know their babies.
A baby-friendly atmosphere is created where it is possible
to build confidence and learn baby yoga together.
Births are de-briefed and strategies are shared for
creating structures around sleep, feeding and activity.
There is opportunity for thinking about how you want to be
as a mother in your family situation.
These groups form a basis for continuing self-help
afterwards in a non-competitive, supportive way.
The postnatal group was 100% excellent as a forum to open
up to the other mums and stabilise our early friendships
into wonderful, solid ones. Great in every way - the baby
massage and yoga, exchanging tips and fears. I am part of a
local NCT yahoo group where I have friendships but it lacks

really difficult first few weeks. This went well beyond the
call of duty and was so much appreciated by me and P.

The postnatal group was fundamental for me to be able to
talk about the first weeks/months - the exhaustion,
confusion, guilt, anger, sadness, helplessness - in a safe
space with other mothers, but also with someone who took
the lead and was 'external'.
The feeling of connection and safety with everyone in
the group definitely stemmed from having gotten to know
each other during both the yoga and couples' classes. I
don't think the same kind of connection could have happened
without those two parts.
