The ‘Baby and You’ course is a 5-week programme, designed to follow on from your childbirth education class, after the birth of your baby. Each session focusses on a topic designed to help you adjust to the change in lifestyle and many new demands of parenthood. It is also a great opportunity to meet other Mums and their babies, who are at a similar age and stage to you.

Babies grow quickly and they go through a variety of stages. ‘Baby and You’ explores the first 6 months of your baby’s life and gives practical information about stimulation for babies, age-appropriate toys and the key milestones of your baby’s growth. The course also recognises the heavy demands babies have on parents’ time and attention. It is common for parents to feel a loss of independence, a huge lack of sleep and worries around emotional and financial changes.

Baby and You is run as a discussion group, giving you the opportunity to talk about your particular situation and your baby’s needs. Because all babies are unique with different needs and personalities, each ‘Baby and You’ session will allow you to discuss your baby’s individual behaviours, and receive tips, advice and potential strategies from our knowledgeable guest speakers and course facilitator, which you can adapt to your own situation.

The 5 session topics are:
- Feeding and Sleeping: with midwife Maura Byrnes.
- Birth Experiences & All About you: with counsellor Mary Braithwaite.
- Child Development: with PORSE Educator Moira James.
- Baby Massage: with Masseuse Fiona Blair.
- Babywearing & Postnatal Health and Wellness: with Cat Jenkins from the Tauranga Babywearing Group and Personal Trainer Anna Opie

New Mothers have found the ‘Baby and You’ course to be a wonderful source of support and encouragement for those first few months after the birth of their baby. We also welcome Dads who wish to come along as primary caregivers.

Baby and You sessions are designed for parents with babies up to around 12 weeks of age. Our Baby and You course is run on Thursdays, at the Tauranga Parents Centre, from 10am - 12pm.

You can also purchase tickets from the Parents Centre - taurangapc@xtra.co.nz or 07 577 1229
