Once your baby is born you can book in for Lynn’s New Baby & Me Course Looking at life with baby in a practical way by learning the art of massage for your baby that deeply calms and relaxes you both! We also make time to discuss life as a new mum it is a huge life transition we all share moving from Independent women to Mother.

For anyone thinking about attending this – go for it! I can’t recommend it enough. Lovely class lead with Lynn’s usual thoughtful sensitive style. My partner said this was the best class we did before Roh was born (and I dragged him to lots of different things). We’re 8 weeks into parenthood and I’ve called on what we learnt in this workshop a lot so far, helped by great material Lynn sent by email afterwards. – Claire

I wanted to thank you for your amazing workshop that I not only thoroughly enjoyed but also found extremely useful and well prepared. It brought together things I read in books or heard, in an organized and relaxed manner. Most importantly, it helped me to feel more connected to my baby and way more confident that I can do this 🙂 Seeing other people and hearing the questions and topics discussed, allowed me to understand that I’m not the only one going through this and this really does seem doable now!! :-)) I can’t wait to meet my baby and start our journey together. – Julia

Thank you so much for the course, we left feeling so positive and empowered about our own abilities and instincts to come. It was tremendously grounding and calming to attend the workshop and really resonated with both us of. I felt like it sifted through all the information in piles out there and cut through to what is logical and practical. I for one found the swaddling and sling demonstrations particularly useful, youtube is great but there’s nothing like watching it in person! We also definitely learnt a good toolkit list and I feel like we now have more ideas up our sleeves to try. – Victoria

We live in this crazy age when so many so-called ‘parenting’ books and courses seem specifically designed to undermine parents’ own instincts, disempowering us all in the process. Lynn’s workshop for life with a new baby did precisely the opposite: in a supportive, enlightening, reassuring and highly enjoyable afternoon she offered expert advice that we discovered chimed with our own parenting instincts, at the same time as providing invaluably practical tips on feeding, sleeping and baby-wearing. We left feeling confident and excited rather than clueless and terrified. –  Clemmie

Thank you so much for your wonderful workshop that we both found incredibly helpful in terms of all the practical tips and the pragmatic approach advocated for responding to a new born. It was positively packed with information and allowed the opportunity for plenty of discussion and interaction, we welcomed the emphasis on being responsive to your baby rather than having to comply with the prescribed methods of parenting that are overstated and asserted nowadays. I would certainly recommend this workshop. – Cassy & Mike
