The moment when a child meets their new brother or sister for the first time is unforgettable.
Do you remember what that felt like? Tell us about how it felt for you – we’d love to hear your stories and memories. Do you have a special tip for that first encounter? Was it as smooth running as this or did you have an entirely different experience!
Perhaps you’re a little further down the line and you are all now back home and you are constantly thinking about juggling getting two children to bed or having to re-learn a skill because there’s been a big gap between the birth of your two children. Are you grappling with how to share your time between two children who are both demanding in different ways. Our Parenting Centre offers lots of special session for you and your family and friends £75 for groups of up to 5 for 90 minutes of essential advice shared with you in person, in a setting that suits you best. If you would prefer a private one to one session or consultation focusing on a specific issue we have a team of knowledgable experts including our co-founder and Lecturer in Child Health, Jill Wheatcroft who does offer private consultations.
Of course two children bring to bear different issues and family emergency first aid is a must. We cannot stress enough that we feel every parent does need to know the basics, our course covers baby and child first aid. We offer a three hour session which covers everything from saving a life to breaks or simple scratches and bumps. Check it out, it’s hugely popular.
Need we even ask if you need an extra pair of hands! So many mums now return to work or to complete projects very soon after giving birth or they simply need help whilst they rest, recuperate or learn about breastfeeding and the whole new world they are now part of. We can help. Everything from short term part day emergency cover through to a long term nanny dedicated to your family enabling you to return to work reassured you are leaving your family in safe hands. If you don’t need help at the moment you can still register which is entirely free, all it means is that when you do have an unexpected need all you have to do is pick up the phone you’re details will be in the system and you are ready to go. Our 26 years of experience means we have systems and expertise to support you properly. Every childcarer has been interviewed in person, has a DBS check, is allowed to work in the UK and has been reference checked. Call us old-fashioned but we want you to know that you will only have contact with people already vetted by professionals.
