Event description

Description

Changes happen during pregnancy that create the foundations for your baby’s future health and development. Parents who understand the developmental journey of their growing baby, and themselves, and what this means for their baby’s needs will be;

· better able to make healthful choices

· better able to provide empathic and responsive care

· better able to adjust to the demands of parenthood

· less anxious about the changes to come and more confident in managing them

This 90 minute workshop is suitable for women at any stage of their pregnancy and we encourage partners to attend as well. We will cover a range of topics with 3 key themes:

· Preparing you for parenthood,

· Equipping you in giving your baby the best start in life

· Understanding pregnancy as a time of change.

The workshop will be delivered by Vanessa and Carly, a registered Health Visitor and Dietitian respectively, and will cover all aspects of Nutrition and Nurture at this key stage of early life. Topics covered will include:

· Good nutrition in pregnancy and how nutrition in the womb impacts a child’s health in later life

· Morning sickness – what helps?

· Body image in pregnancy – feeling good about your changing body weight/shape

· Establishing a healthy relationship with food and becoming a role model for your child

· Feeling confident about your abilities as a parent

· Exploring parenting styles

· Understanding how emotional bonds grow between babies and their parents.

· Developmental stages of your newborn

· How will I feed my baby? The pros and cons of breastfeeding, bottle feeding, and combination feeding and how to make an informed decision that suits you and your baby

· Supporting siblings with adapting to your changing family

Workshops are a maximum of 15 people and the price of £35 includes a hot drink, plenty of evidence-based information to take home and a goody bag.

The Wheatstone Inn is an informal venue located just outside of Gloucester (next to the bowling and Premier Inn). It is easy to access, has plenty of parking, and provides the option to purchase breakfast before the session or lunch afterwards.

Please note that partners pay a concessionary rate of £5 which includes a hot drink (we envisage you being able to share the goody bag!).
