"Baby group"

About: Abbey and Lady Bay Children's Centre

(as a parent/guardian),

I am a first time mum and have recently started coming to bumps to babies class which was recommended by my health visitor. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go as I didn’t know anyonw however I visited Tracey at the session before to get some breast feeding support and she also recommended staying for the bumps and babies class. Tracey was very helpful and friendly which made me feel so relaxed I decided to stay. Amanda and the other members of staff at the class made me feel so welcome and got me talking to other Mums. I now have a place to go every week with my daughter which we both enjoy. We are always meeting new people and would recommend it to anyone not just first time Mums. Amanda is fantastic she sings good bye to all the babies that go, I don’t know how she manages to remember everyone’s names. Tracy helped me loads with breast feeding however it wasn’t right for my daughter in the end but Tracy made me feel at ease deciding the best option for my daughter. Please visit the classes they are great and they helped me get out there once my baby arrived. Thanks ladies

Dear WBMum,

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on this forum, it is always good to hear when parents like yourself have benfitted from attending sessiond delivered via your local Children's Centre.

It's great to hear the staff at the session have professionally delivered a service to you that has supported your needs during those precious early days of being a mum and I am so pleased your Health Visitor recommended this group and you are continuing to use the service.

Thank you again
