Cheshire Parenting Collective is a social enterprise that supports families, from pregnancy to preschool age. They set up the collective when they had children and found that there was a distinct lack of support in their local community. They set out to change this by creating a schedule of events, workshops and support for parents.
They have created a Fourth Trimester Course that seeks to help pregnant women prepare for life once their newborn has arrived. It is a 4-week course covering:
building your coping toolkit
infant sleep development
baby massage and positive touch
feeding (breast and bottle) with Jane Graves IBCLC
using a sling
looking after you
Within the sessions you will get to meet parents like you, get some much-needed nurturing, and feel more empowered to enjoy your newborn.
The course costs £50 and includes a free 2-week sling/carrier hire that it is worth £10. The sessions take place every Tuesday from March 6 to March 27th 2018. They will be held at Hazel Grove Methodist Church from 10.30am-12.30pm.
