Event description

Description

Being on parental leave shouldn’t mean you have to lose touch with your profession.

We believe that if everyone felt more comfortable bringing babies along to professional events and kept their toes dipped in the working world whilst taking a little time out, it would not only improve confidence and create a more balanced parental leave experience but also be beneficial for our babies too!

PLUSbaby is a baby friendly one day educational and wellbeing event for doctors to which babies under the age of 1 are very welcome.

Our aim is to make it as comfortable as possible to bring your baby along should you wish to!

Lectures will be of interest to physicians and surgeons of all specialties, they will include topics that are both useful to some as clinicians but to all as parents.The lecturers will be consultants or specialists in their field and happy to answer your questions.

Topics will include:

  • Early life nutrition for the prevention of allergies

  • Dealing with behavioural issues in children (by Dr Caroline Fertleman, consultant paediatrician and author of Your Baby Week By Week)

  • Maternal mental health & transitioning to motherhood (by Dr Emma Svanberg, clinical psychologist and The Mumologist)

  • Being a medical parent – the good, the bad and the nanny

There will be a breakout room filled with soft play that will be a safe space for babies to roam and explore. We have arranged a Baby Sensory class to take place once the lectures have finished and also a session on mindful parenting from The Breathe Academy.

Baby changing area plus a quiet breastfeeding and expressing room will be available.

There will also be hot/cold drinks and a buffet lunch stocked with finger foods that will make one handed eating as easy as possible!

You will receive a certificate to certify your attendance.

PLUSbaby is a not-for-profit conference for medics, with all proceeds going to Whittington Babies.
