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.

5th September 2019 – Introduction to Baby Massage | Annika Russell
Annika Russell was originally a Registered Nurse in the UK, before relocating to Singapore – here she continued to work before training as a Postnatal Doula. She holds a diploma in Baby Massage and has a great interest in postnatal care.
Baby massage has numerous benefits – it can help your baby to sleep better, and it increases the bond between you both. Massaging a baby can help to calm them, as well as aiding with issues such as constipation and colic. Baby massage helps to stimulate the Central Nervous System, and in turn this helps the body to release serotonin to calm them down.
Annika will be going through an introduction to baby massage techniques that you can use with your baby on a daily basis to enable them to be calm and increase the bond between you and your baby.
