Facilitated Birth Club for Expectant Mothers in NW3
About this Event
Pregnancy and impending motherhood can be such an exciting time. Wouldn't it be great to have others to share it with?
We are organising a facilitated Birth Club for Expectant Mothers in NW3. Kind of like a one evening NCT course, so you can meet your village before giving birth. They will be sooo important in your post natal daze, when your timetable will go out of whack for a little while -it will be so useful for you to have a group of people you can turn to during a night feed (at least, it was for us)!
This event is organised by Jessica Warne for Hampstead Mums.
What you will receive for your ticket:
Buffet dinner and drinks - catered for by Oliver's cafe
Pamphlet with information about navigating the local community with your newborn, tips from other mums and relevant new mummy information
Plentiful goodie bag with gifts from: Space Masks, Loveboo, Jessie Bakes, Ta Doodle Dah, The Lion Sparkles, Empower Me Doula" and Atlas Chiropractic to name a few
A chance to meet others with babies that will be of a similar age locally
(FYI this is a non-profit event)
About Hampstead Mums
Hampstead Mums is an inclusive community for local parents to share wise words, local knowledge and general parenting chat. With nearly 9,000 members the community has grown away from the pages of facebook and into the "real" world hosting many successful events including coffee mornings, playgroups and charity fundraisers.
We have been speaking to local mums and one thing that is still so needed is building a community for first time mums, lost between the incredible excitement and fog of trying to navigate a new world. We would like to make it a little easier and bridge the gaps that might occur. We will be hosting quarterly "Birth Clubs", a place for expectant mums to meet others with similar due dates within the community, learn some local knowledge that will be helpful during pregnancy and postnatally, receive some fab free gifts in a packed goodie bag and have a gorgeous buffet dinner.
About Jessica Warne
My name is Jessica Warne and I have been asked by Hampstead Mum's to host these meet-ups. I am an experienced Maternal Wellbeing Coach and a local mum of two. I understand how difficult it can be to make new friends locally when you have a new young baby. Turning up to a new mother and baby group can make you feel like you are right back in the school playground on your first day at school again. I will do my utmost to ensure that this feeling is avoided and help you to build connections and friendships with others so you can march into those groups together side by side.
I am also the founder of local charity Cocoon Family Support, who provide emotional support for those that are suffering with antenatal and postnatal depression and anxiety. With this background knowledge I will be offering some practical and emotional tips to those that need, helping you have as easy and calm a transition to parenthood as possible.
If you have any questions about the event before purchasing the ticket please do feel free to get in touch via email firstname.lastname@example.org. This event is open to all expectant mothers - if you do not live in NW3 but in surrounding areas then please do feel free to come along also.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
(To reiterate, this is a non-profit event)
