A free course of mindfulness for babies and bumps
Baby Mindful is a brand new FREE course of Mindfulness for bumps and babies. New parents and their babies (pre-walking), and soon to be parents and their bumps, can join in the calming Orleans House Gallery space on Mondays when it is closed to the public. You will be welcomed into a fully baby-friendly space to:
Enjoy quiet, quality time with your baby to enhance bonding and promote calm.
Learn mindfulness techniques to promote relaxation for you and your baby and encourage you to feel calm and grounded here and at home.
Try mindful mark making techniques, and engage with the visual and emotional impact of the exhibitions.
Learn coping, calming and focusing techniques to help focus on the here and now.
Meet other local new parents – each session will end with a social lunchtime.
