Bumps and Babies

11.00-12.30pm
Cloistered in St. Michael's church hall on Cornmarket every Tuesday around noon is Bumps and Babies: an ongoing service provided by NCT Oxford, this is an often cosy but always friendly group of pregnant women and carers of babies.  Any stage of pregnancy is welcome, as is every baby until they can walk. We aim to provide a space that is warm, supportive and non-judgemental with no topic off-limits when it comes to pregnancy, birth and babies. But conversation isn't limited to just that! Our group has been called a haven in the city centre: somewhere free, safe to feed and change your baby without the risk of them being trampled by toddlers. Most weeks involve conversation, tea and biscuits with toys on play mats for the tinies. Many friendships have begun here, but the group is always drop-in and while most do not attend every week, everyone is welcome and welcomed back with a smile.

We have a great local resource table for baby and pregnancy focused services and businesses.  However our users are our best resource, whether it be a question about nursing bras or where to take your baby on a Tuesday morning, someone always has an answer. From time to time we have "taster sessions" from local relevant businesses and recently had Monkey Music, Baby Sensory and Clockwork Music all come to entertain us.  We also had two well-attended parties this autumn: Halloween (which had a photobooth for costumed tikes) and just before the holidays in December a raffle.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with this group.
