Warwickshire Central branch run an Early Days drop in alongside other activities at St Marks Church, Rugby Road, Leamington Spa. CV32 6DL on Thursday afternoons (Bumps & Babies / Early Days session is 2-3.30pm). There are numerous groups running at the same time and same place and there's something for everyone. There are opportunities to discuss parenting, ask for information and support, and to just get out of the house and meet other parents! Please see the Kaleidoscope events page for full details.
This drop in costs £1 per family and is for all prospective and new parents / carers. There is a led programme of discussions hosted by a qualified NCT Postnatal Leader to help give people a chance to talk, make friends, share hints and tips as well as giving some time and thought to themselves over refreshments. The timings are flexible as we understand the reality of getting out with a new baby. We also understand that babies need feeding, changing and sometimes cry and we work around all this. If your baby cries a lot, this is the place to come and meet others who understand!
There is also free, open to all, breastfeeding drop-in with a qualified NCT breastfeeding counsellor. A mother can experience difficulties feeding her baby, whether it is her first or fifth. The breastfeeding counsellor can help you work through these difficulties offering a listening ear and some practical information and support. Expectant parents can also talk through any queries or past experiences.
