What people are saying about Baby Mindful

It was our first experience of baby mindfulness and we didn't know what to expect but Jo put us at ease and we felt comfortable and relaxed throughout the session. Baby Freddie (only 5weeks old) appeared to enjoy the exercises and opportunity to relax and be close to me. Constructively the room felt a little cramped but Jo did explain future groups would be smaller. Also it would have been nice to have more of an opportunity to introduce Mummy's/babies to feel more comfortable with eachother but I imagine there would be more opportunities to do this in a more established group. I will be exploring options to continue this experience as can definitely see the benefits and Jo demonstrated the types of exercises really well. Thank you

My son and I both really enjoyed the session. It was a chance to embrace and indulge in some precious time together. The session was extremely well led and at every stage my son's needs were put as the priority. We had a lovely time and didn't want it to end. My son was engaged and seemed to be really alert to the activity that we were doing and vicki gently guided us through the session. The ambience was well set with a multi sensory approach. Overall I would highly recommend baby mindful as both my son and I were able to take so much out of the experience thanks to the skilled and extremely professional delivery. Thank you for the wonderful experience. We will continue to use the ideas when we are at home together.

A wonderful class. I enjoyed the closeness and time with my daughter. We came out feeling very relaxed and had a lovely calm rest of day. Jo created a gentle and happy ambience. Would definitely recommend.

The class was interesting and the time passed that quickly that we didn't realise that it was already an hour later! Thank you. We will be back.
