Growing Families: Facts, Fiction and Other Stuff

Thursday 6th October 2016

Expecting a baby? New to parenting or wanting to explore more about what you know? About to become a grandparent? Supporting new families?

Then this event is for you!

Come and discover what makes YOU tick, what will affect your parenting style, what baby expects and how you can maintain the relationships that matter to you.

Learn about the latest evidence on baby care and find out more about the choices new parents face. Hear about experiences of different parenting journeys and what kinds of support can make the difference to your growing family.

This is a not-for-profit event, created by four mothers, two of whom are also healthcare professionals. To contact us please email

Our mission is to tackle the postnatal information that desperately needs covering for new families. To explore expectations and evidence around the early days with baby. To keep ticket prices low, with no expectation of making a profit, in order to open up the event to as many people as we can. To ensure that support for the event comes from ethical organisations and those who share our interest in evidence based information and family wellbeing. To give new families the confidence to face the challenges ahead.

Tickets for the event are £30 each or £50 for two. Refreshments, lunch and goody bags are included.

Babes in arms are welcome to join us on the day – we will have a Sling Library available from Peekaboo Slings.
