The course is available to groups, not part of our regular training calendar. If your mother’s group, pre-school group, friends or family want to take part, all we need is a minimum of 10 participants and you’re on.

This course is typically presented to new parents as a way of answering the many questions you have after you bring young Bub home. A lot of it will put your mind at ease knowing that quite a few people have trodden this path before you and survived! It’s fun, it’s easy, it’s a place to ask questions and get sensible answers. And of course, bring Bub with you, show off!
