Expert-led Postnatal Talks with Drop-in Flexibility
From our years of experience of teaching prenatal classes, we realised that pregnant couples can feel overloaded with information in their pregnancy, and a lot of it isn’t important until after their baby is born (the postnatal period). The ‘Postnatal Talks’ series is designed so that you receive information that you are interested in, at a time that is relevant to you. We have teamed up with some experts to bring you interesting talks and information to help you with life with a baby.
Each week, an experienced health professional will chat to you about different topics or introduce to you to new skills.
We know that mums can have bad nights and tough days, or may not want to learn about something until a few months after their baby is born, when it is more relevant, so we have made it flexible and you can ‘drop in’ to any of the classes when it suits you. Just have a look at who is talking in what week and book in!
In true Beloved Bumps style, there is also an emphasis on the social side – we will ensure that you get to know the other mums in your group to help build your all important support network of friends. Beloved Bumps is known for creating great support networks and that doesn’t just stop at the prenatal class! Our classes are held at the beautiful Maggie and Rose in Dempsey, and after the talk you are welcome to stay for more coffee with your new friends, and even try their delicious food for lunch.
Cost: $20 as a single session, or option to buy a pack of 4. This includes the talk, coffee and cake

19th September 2019 – Women’s Health Physiotherapist talk on Pelvic floor, Diastasis Recti and Recovery Post Birth | Lucie Lamprey
Lucie has been a physiotherapist for over 10 years; initially in London and since 2011 has been living and working in Singapore. In 2013 she completed her Masters of Manual Therapy (UWA) and has since been developing her special interest in Women’s Health and Pelvic floor dysfunction. She has done numerous post-graduate professional development courses that focus on treating pre-and post-natal women for incontinence, rectus diastasis (abdominal separation/DRAM), pelvic organ prolapse and pelvic pain disorders such as dyspareunia. Her passion is to work in partnership with women to maintain a healthy, active pregnancy and if desired to be able to return to activities and sport post-natally. She works with a wide range of women from those new to exercise, with pre-existing medical conditions, to recreational and competitive elite athletes.
26th September 2019 – Babies, Children and Swimming! | Kristen Romain. Introduction to Baby Sign | Annika Russell
Kristen has been been working as a Swim Instructor since 2010, both in Singapore and Dubai, UAE and is married with 2 beautiful children, Zac and Ella.
“Swimming is a personal passion, and I followed that into a job that I thoroughly enjoy as we raised our two great kids. I left a demanding corporate role and attained AUSTSWIM Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety and Teacher of Infant Aquatics qualifications so that I could help teach others (babies/kids/adults) how to enjoy (and respect) the water as much as our family does.
Every time I see students squealing with delight as they enter the pool area for a lesson, or giggling excitedly as they learn something new, I know how lucky I am to be doing this.
Ella is also an aspiring mermaid and loves swimming with her Merfin any chance she gets!”
Annika trained and became a registered nurse in London in 2012 and later became registered in Australia in 2018. She has worked in various medical and gynecology wards in the UK NHS system and surgical wards in Sydney before having time off to settle in Singapore and start a family of her own. She volunteers for Caring for Cambodia by performing health check in schools in Cambodia, and HOME as a health advisor.
Having a child in Singapore without family around for support can be daunting and sometimes overwhelming – Annika became passionate in supporting new mums and dads in the beginning of their parenting journey whilst going through early parenthood herself, and so went on to qualify and receive her certificate as a postpartum doula. She believes in giving new parents the confidence and knowledge to give their child the best possible start in life and to give them practical support to build confidence, as well as providing unbiased, evidence based advice to empower parents to make the right decision for them and their family.
3rd October 2019 – Clinical Psychologist talk on Postnatal Mental Health, Relationships and Birth | Dr. Josephine Carlisle and Lisa Sanders
MA Clinical Psychology, BSocSc (Hons) Psychology, Registered Psychologist (HPCSA)
Alliance Counselling Pte Ltd
Lisa is a qualified clinical psychologist from South Africa, with a passion for working therapeutically across various ages, genders and cultures. She has varied work experience and is deeply committed to promoting mental health, a basic human right, amongst all populations. Lisa has developed areas of special interests and skills throughout her academic, research and working experiences. Here are two of these areas:
Maternal and child mental health
Both her honours and master’s dissertations focused on women’s experiences during high-risk pregnancies and childbirth. She has worked with the Perinatal Mental Health Project (PMHP) where focus was given to women’s mental health in the prenatal, antenatal and postnatal period. This was then followed up in terms of child outcomes. Maternal and child mental health continues to be a passion of hers and coincides well with her mindfulness approach, which is beginning to place more focus on early interventions with mothers and children.
• Mindfulness Based Interventions
Over the past six years Lisa has personally been engaged in one-on-one Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) training and has experienced the varied benefits of Mindfulness Based Interventions (MBIs). She is formally trained in Mindfulness- Based Wellbeing Enhancement – another type of MBI – which focuses more on strengths-building and positive psychology principles.
