Simon and Sarah, Antanatal Class
We both very much enjoyed the Baby Calming class and found all the information very useful. The course covers a lot of practical tips to help sooth your baby as well as the logic behind it all, all of which isn’t covered in NHS parenting classes. It’s inclusive for both mums and dads and we both feel much more confident, prepared and excited about becoming parents and being able to care for our baby. Madaline was excellent at delivering the session. She has an abundance of knowledge and experience and was able to answer all our questions as first time parents. She made us feel both very welcome in her home, which definitely added to the enjoyment of the class. We would recommend the class to future parents and will definitely be encouraging our friends to book up.
Suzy & Cammy 4 week course
Thank you Madaline for the very informative and enjoyable Baby Calm course!
I really enjoyed having the opportunity to talk to other mums about Cammy's birth and being a mum for the second time. I learned new techniques to help to calm Cammy and it also helped me to realise that though some things didn't work for my daughter, this didn't mean they wouldn't work for Cammy. In particular, I found the swaddling, (which my daughter didn't like at all), and baby carrying techniques have worked really well with Cammy.
The small group size & relaxed pace gave us mums a chance to get to know each other well and it was no problem if the babies needed fed or changed. Madaline also encouraged us each session to look back at the week we had had, to acknowledge the milestones past, and to celebrate what it means to be a mummy! I know how difficult it can be to leave the house with a tiny baby but I would strongly recommend that people go to the class when their baby is as young as possible to get the full benefits both of the techniques you will learn and the company of other mums.
Julie & Matthew 4 week course
I am really happy that I came to the class when Matthew was 3 weeks old, I would even recommend that mums go to the class at 2 weeks as from the 1st week I learnt so much that I could have used the techniques sooner. Also it would have saved me a lot of worry. Not only did I get a lot from the techniques that Madaline taught but I also got a lot from talking to the other mums and sharing my feelings and learning hints from them. Madaline carried the classes
out in a very relaxed way which allowed us all to relax, learn and share experiences in a lovely atmosphere.
