Bumps Beginnings

Do you ever feel that you and your partner just aren't on the same page?

Do you have niggling worries about pregnancy and parenthood , that you sometimes feel afraid to say out loud?

Would you like to be better connected as a family so that your differences become your strengths?


The Wise Hippo Prenatal Parenting Programme brought to you by Bumps Cumbria is designed to help you and your partner connect, with each other as well as with your baby.  Pregnancy is such an exciting time for your family, but it can also bring many anxieties, which are completely understandable!  I want you both to feel confident and be able to share these worries with each other, at the same time creating a positive bond between you and your bump.  By sharing your doubts, you can address them and move forward together, as a team.

This is a three hour session, which guides you through the emotional ups and downs you may feel in your pregnancy.  It will help you to recognise, understand and process both the incredible highs and the frequent worries that pregnancy can present, in a way that strengthens and builds on the connections that already exist between you, your partner, and your bump. Enjoying this time together with your baby can also help with their emotional and psychological development, as their growing brain makes new connections and learns how to process emotions constructively.  Bumps Beginnings will also help you to increase your energy levels and self-esteem at what can be a physically and emotionally draining time of your life!

You can complete the Beginnings course at any time during your pregnancy, it is suitable for both the early stages and later on, and does not require you to also complete the Birthing Programme (although you may choose to once you see the difference a Wise Hippo course can make!).

'Beginnings' courses are generally run privately, in your home, to ensure you both feel comfortable.  The price is £60 per couple, which includes all course materials.
