These friendly, informal and free online group sessions run once a week, for 3 weeks, every month! These sessions are FREE to all pregnant mums living in the Basildon, Billericay, Wickford, Thurrock or Castlepoint areas of Essex.
We will be sharing lots of useful information about pregnancy, birth and being a parent. You can also chat with other expectant mums in your area, share any worries or concerns you may have and ask questions. We’ll cover:
You and your wellbeing (healthy eating, keeping active, changing body, emotional wellbeing) hosted by Terina
Preparing for labour and birth (birth plans, birthing positions, labour bag, managing contractions) hosted by Chantelle
Practical baby care (nappy changing, bathing, safe sleeping, feeding your baby, car seat safety) hosted by Debbie
A few days before each individual session the host will contact you via email and provide you with a zoom link to join on the day.
After the session you will also be invited to join a private group space for all mums who have attended these sessions which will allow you to access chatrooms, ask questions and view the resources that have been shared with you. All you need to do to access this is register on this website.
