A complete package of support for you & baby
New Baby & Me, has moved online, redesigned and adapted for this format, extended from 10 to 15 hours, run over 6 weeks. It includes a mid morning catch up a few days after the main class and include’s a 1-2-1 chat with myself, pre course, a space for you to tell me how you are doing. Yoga and massage in the early months after birth can be at the heart of your postnatal recovery and your baby’s delight. Our New Baby & Me Course is part one of our postnatal programme, aimed at the first 3 months after the birth.
New Baby & Me sets you up with simple tools that you’ll find useful now and for months, even years, into the future with your children. You will develop real skills here on how to handle your new baby confidently, helping them to relax more fully. We will develop massage & movement for your babies with a focus on their optimal development.
Yoga in these early months can be at the heart of your postnatal recovery, but be assured we start small with simple movements to begin the journey of undoing and releasing tension held in your body post birth. Proper attention is also given to the rehabilitation of your core muscles.
This slower approach respects were you are energetically, as well as your baby who is often ‘in arms’ during class. The practice of mindful breathing within yoga helps you relax and gives you a tool to use daily in your new life as a mother.
You will have the opportunity to get to know others in the group, and share your experiences more fully in the Monday morning meet ups. Here we will discuss issues relevant to your new life with baby as well as considering your emotional wellbeing during your transition into motherhood. A supportive circle of women will increase your confidence in this new life chapter.
Class recordings and back up material are sent to you after class. So anything missed, due to caring for your baby, can be caught up with later that day or week.
Over the six weeks of the course, you will begin to feel reconnected to yourself, gradually growing in strength and confidence. This will leave you feeling nourished both physically and emotionally.

A huge thank you for everything on our New Baby and Me course. From the very beginning you helped to put me more at ease with the early stages of mothering and you encouraged me to trust my instincts when raising Jemima. The course was an invaluable way of not only learning new skills but also to connect with like-minded mothers, which has been so difficult during these covid times. I found the Monday morning catch ups especially beneficial as a space to talk about any concerns and ask questions in an honest, supportive and reassuring environment. Thank you so much for all of your guidance. I hope to be in touch soon about joining Mama and Me. – Joanne & Jemima
Lynn’s classes were my light in the early weeks and months of motherhood. Through her gentle yoga I started to feel stronger physically, and through the discussion and her caring approach, I started to feel much stronger mentally. She taught me the art of being kinder to myself and it has made me a much better, and happier, Mother and partner. Lynn’s classes are non judgmental and full of other mums sharing the same joys and challenges so it’s a great safe space to feel heard and understood and to meet other women sharing your experience. I will be forever grateful to Lynn for the impact she had on my baby and I, and I would recommend her classes to any new Mum. – Chloe & River
I wanted to thank you, after only two sessions of New Baby and Me, I am seeing a real difference. When Aria awoke post feed at 1:30am last night I resisted my usual urge to head downstairs resigned for a couple of hours of pacing out of bed and, instead, used some of the techniques you’ve taught us to get her back to sleep in our room. After a cuddle and an exchange of smiles, I laid her in her cot and used long dry massage strokes, talking calmly and gradually dimmed the lights. She was asleep within 45mins. My husband even asked this morning whether she woke at all in the night! – Hannah & Aria
Having done Lynn’s antenatal yoga class throughout my pregnancy, it felt like going home for the Baby and Me course. Taught with gentleness, kindness and a healthy dose of humour, the course was just what my daughter and I needed in those vital first months of getting to know each other. I’d highly recommend it for any new mum. – Shamita & Leela
