Learning Babies is a 6 week course for new mums and their brand new babies. Come and relax in a warm and inviting atmosphere where you can develop new friendships with other mums who are going through a similar experience to you. Each week brings a new focus, from self-care and adjusting to parenting to newborn behaviours and brain development. We love to see new mums grow in confidence and to watch their little ones grow too.

The first baby that we have is what we at The Stork Network like to call our "learning babies'. We have to make so many fundamental decisions about who we are as parents and what we believe to be the best care for our children and it's often our first babies who we make these choices with. They really define our morals, values and beliefs as parents and as a family.  Not only are we discovering who we are as parents, we are also responsible for the care and well-being of our new wee addition; this alone can be a very daunting thought and sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming. 

Our Learning babies course is designed to give you the information, support and guidance that many new mums need in those early weeks.  It is an opportunity to ask questions, seek support and ultimately meet other new mums in the same situation as you. Learning Babies is created and delivered by our Education Manager Zalie Doyle who brings to the course her knowledge, skills and a passion for new mums and babies.
