Congratulations on your new arrival! Welcome to the world of parenting, and everything that it brings.
As you enter this new phase in your life, you may be looking for activities that you can enjoy with your new baby, or something for yourself to support your postnatal wellness and recovery.
At Life Spaces, we know that the early days with a new baby are such a precious time, especially for mum and baby, as mum takes time to adjust to life with a baby and to allow herself time to recover in the post natal period. With that in mind, we've developed a range of gentle, nurturing classes that you can enjoy with your baby, plus some treatments just for you.
With a young family of our own, we know only too well that life can sometimes feel a little overwhleming with a new baby, and so we've designed our classes and courses to provide an oasis of calm for you and baby.
All of our group classes are small in number, calm in environment and totally baby led. We allow plenty of time for babies to adjust, feed, change and of course cuddle with mum.
We support breastfeeding and you are welcome to feed your baby at any of our classes or sessions, we even have comfy sofas, plump cushions and free refreshments on hand for your comfort.
For babies who are bottle fed, we have bottle warming and sterilising facilities at all of our sessions.
No nappies or wipes?! No problem - we've got that covered too, with baby changing stations, and facilites for both cloth nappy and disposable nappy users.
