Are you having a baby?
Have you recently had a baby?
Would you like to get out and meet other new mams?
Becoming a new Mam is a privilege and a joy but is also challenging and can become socially isolating when getting out of the house in those first few weeks seems like the impossible, we understand as we have been there ourselves! Our Clart About Cares classes give you the opportunity to be amongst women who are going through the same life-changing transitions as you.
Our Clart About Cares Class is a friendly, informal social group that provides a warm welcome and shared encouragement at the start of your parenting journey. It is a place where you can find the support you need in a non-judgemental environment.
Our weekly classes are conversation and play-based to offer you the chance to make lasting friendships for you and your baby. Clart About believes that you and your new babies are all ‘stars’ and we want you to come together share your ‘twinkle’ moments and let us share and ‘shine’ together. These classes focus on the well-being of mother and baby.
Suitable for expectant mothers and new mothers with babies up to 6 months old. FUNDED BY STAMP IT OUT CAMPAIGN FUNDED FOR 2020-2021.
