Bumps and Babies - Stage 1 of our support network for parents.
St Paul's Church, Bishopton Road, Stockton TS18 4PE Map
Wednesdays 10am - 12 noon
Expectant parents and babies under 1 (pre-walking)
Bumps and Babies meets every Wednesday including school holidays (but not the one between Christmas and New Year). Bumps and Babies is a drop in group so you can attend as often as you wish. Soft play, chat and refreshments...simply that.
No structure, no speakers, no expectations that you will relate your birth experience to the rest of the group; simply a good opportunity to step off the world for a few hours, chat and have a drink made for you. So forget the housework, that can wait; come along for some social interaction without having to host people at home.
This is a group for everybody however you choose to feed your offspring. Microwave oven and kettle available for formula feeders, mutual support for breastfeeders; all welcome!
Suggested donation £1 per week to cover room hire costs.
Testamonial from Sarah, mum of Esme:
"As the first of my pregnant friends to have my baby, I suffered in silence about the difficulties I had with breastfeeding and coming to terms with what had happened at her birth, not wanting to scare the others before their time came. Going to 'Bumps' gave me the safe space to talk about how I felt with other new mums either going through it or who had recently come out the other side. Absolutely essential! I would reccommend it to everyone!"
