NEW MUMS CONNECT MORNING TEA

Your safe space to venture out with your new baby

Socialising again can at first feel daunting. Once you feel comfortable to take your baby out, we would love you to join us for our monthly morning tea with other mums and babies.  It’s a great opportunity to connect with women who are all going through similar experiences, share your stories and benefit from a sense of normalcy again – what a relief!  Wear your pyjamas if you wish…there is no judgement here!  We have seen very close friendships blossom out of these groups that last beyond ‘the baby years’.  Your session is facilitated by Karen Shlegeris, founder of Birth & Baby Village and new mama nurturer. 

Membership includes one morning tea.

Non-members: $15 per session.             

Baby & Mama Wisdom Q&A sessions

  • Returning to work.
  • Bedroom issues.

CALM MAMAS

Your safe space to explore the adventure of motherhood

Whether you’re experiencing this for the 1st, 2nd or 4th time…having a new baby can be an intense time for mothers.  It can bring a mix of joy and stress as you learn to adapt to the changes in your life and your growing family.  This course gives you a safe space and time to explore your changed world, acknowledge the challenges that come with parenting, find ways to cope and adapt, and share the load with others who understand and care about your story.  

Cuddle, feed and snuggle with your baby while you chat.  Each week our small group of mothers will explore a different theme, share morning tea and end with a guided relaxation.

Baby Sleep workshops with our Sensitive Sleep Consultant

Does your baby sleep through the night?

Sleep for your baby is important, however, YOUR sleep is equally as important. How to get a baby to sleep and stay asleep is one of the biggest concerns you’ll have as a new parent.  You may be told a lot of conflicting advice, which can be confusing. We understand that you just want to know what’s best for both your baby and your family.  Our Sensitive Sleep Consultant will give you simple information and options to suit every family in this short workshop.  Alternatively, you can book a private consultation to resolve your individual issues.
