Free virtual events for pregnant & new mummy's


If you haven't joined the new Mummy's network that I recently created, please do so. You can read about it here. I've been busy behind the scenes getting other businesses involved, and those who will be 'missing out' on antenatal classes, pregnancy yoga, midwife appointments, breastfeeding support etc. You can't go to them, so I'm bringing them to you!! This way we'll also all still be supporting our amazing local businesses as they need you now more than ever. I'll be putting together a timetable of online classes that you can join, completely free. Keep this page bookmarked to check out the updated timetable, and turn notifications on in the group too as that's where these events will be broadcast, along with lots of other free resources.

OVERVIEW


UPCOMING



I hosted over 50 classes (see below) during the Coronavirus lockdown, but this has now come to an end due to the guidelines easing and me returning to photographing your babies. However, you can still watch all of the talks and classes back at your own leisure. Take a look at the list and click to view the content.
