Parent Space is a place for Mums and Dads of babies up to 12 months to explore different aspects of being a parent with a NCT qualified Postnatal Practitioner. Each session will give support, confidence and practical tips
Each session will run on a Friday 10:30-11:30am at Staines Congregational Church Hall (adjacent to our Bumps & Babes group). You can do them all, or just pick & choose the sessions which interest you.
Each session costs just £4 and includes entry to Bumps & Babes from 10am.
