Medical Education Classes run by doctors

 

For new parents, not so new parents, grandparents, parents to be and any caregivers interested in learning more about babies.

 

Medibabies postnatal courses are designed for parents and caregivers, where current medical information and guidance is discussed and explained by a volunteer doctor.

Our postnatal courses consist of four weekly sessions which covers the basics of looking after a newborn such as safe sleeping guidelines and how to spot sepsis.. We also look at the evidence behind these guidelines and use it to explain how the NHS guidelines have been made and why they are important.

Having a new baby is an incredibly exciting time, however often it can feel daunting with so much information to find. At medibabies we ensure up to date medical advice about babies can be understood and discussed in a safe environment amongst like minded parents. We believe that through education and understanding of the reasons behind medical guidelines parents can be empowered to make the best decisions for their baby.  

See the booking page for information of course content. Please be aware that the course will have an emphasis on medical topics including education some of the the medical processes behind sensitive issues such as SIDS and serious illnesses.
