What parents say about our groups:

‘I was really impressed with this group. Well organised and welcoming, just what mums/parents of newborns need. I’ll be back next week and have recommended the group to friends as I think they’ll really benefit with their newborns. I really appreciated the relaxed feel of the group and the advice from the volunteers – non-judgmental and encouraging, thank you.’
