New Baby & Me Postnatal Training Days

Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou!  It was a pleasure to meet and learn from you. You have an amazing way of looking at giving care and empowerment to women and I feel you have changed my practice forever. Such a refreshing change to learn from someone who is clearly so passionate about the job they do…and so made for it!  – Sarah Smith Midwife

A unique training created by Lynn Murphy, our postnatal expert at the Active Birth Centre.

Are you a Doula, NCT, Pregnancy Yoga, Active Birth, Hypnobirth or Baby Massage practitioner? If so this training could be great CPD for you, indeed all those who are already working with pregnant women, and/or new parents, who would like to develop ways to continue working after the birth and deepen the quality of what you offer in the postnatal period. Also for those exploring the possibilities of working with new mums & babies this training could be a wonderful stepping stone into the area, creating good foundations from which to explore how to take there interest forward. 

Based on her extensive and innovative postnatal work over the last 20 years Lynn is delighted to offer this training to all professionals working with women in the early postnatal period. Three days to discover simple yet effective tools to extend and develop your work in helping new families develop secure attachments.

In the form of three separate days, that when all attended complete the training with add on of observation of Lynn’s classes. You can attend the days as stand alone study/CPD days. Dates below for Jan & Feb, they will be repeated later in the year so ou can start the process with one of the days and continue later in the year if you wish.

Information is important for new parents helping them to make good parenting choices from an empowered position. My aim with this training is to help you fill a gap that is often there in the support of new families. For those of us working with new mothers our role is to facilitate a place of non-judgment and support were women can feel safe to open up to others while exploring what is normal to expect at this time. Then through the simplicity of touch, yoga and the breath alongside openhearted dialogue and discussion women can discover their mothering skills and the enjoyment that can be had when one does not feel alone. You will observe the mother and baby relationship blossom. – Lynn Murphy

This training will inform and enrich your present work helping you to plan workshops and classes relevant to the first months, with the option of starting in the latter months of pregnancy. You will develop a range of abilities to support the new mother & baby bonding process; these practical and deceptively simple techniques are designed to encourage more relaxed parents and calmer babies.

I so enjoyed my three days training at The Active Birth Centre- a place I had longed to visit having read so much about the fabulous and inspiring work that goes on there. I was not disappointed. I spent three wonderful days there in the company of inspiring women from diverse backgrounds in midwifery, yoga and doulas. Under the guidance and nurturing of Lynn Murphy- a truly gifted facilitator- we were taken on a journey of self reflection and discovery. Lynn’s long working career of working with mums in the postnatal period really shone through. She facilitated a great course both in content and style. I left feeling I had gained a huge amount of information, tools and exercises that I can use in my work both in a one to one setting and in group work. Thank you Lynn for sharing your knowledge and wisdom so beautifully. BSc MSC Health Psychologist, Maternity Nurse, Doula & Night Nanny  Christina Johnson 

About Lynn

Lynn trained with Janet Balaskas as an Active Birth Teacher for Pre and Postnatal yoga over 20 years ago, followed by training in developmental baby massage with Peter Walker. She went on to devise our Postnatal programme at the ABC as well as the development of the ABC Postnatal training and other trainings for the postnatal period. Lynn continues to develop this area of her work imaginatively, learning especially from the mothers and babies she meets in her classes. She also runs workshops at the her local Hospital and supports the local Maternity Voices group to improve services for new families.

At the ABC our concept has always been to give continuous support and inspiration throughout the entire primal period from conception to toddler and the content of this course includes all the skills Lynn has developed for the perinatal period and beyond
