For you girls searching for a fab antenatal class (lets face it, some of the girls you meet in NCT are STRANGE!), there’s a new baby-prep class in town! Introducing Lulubaby. Set up by ex Goldman girl turned breastfeeding guru, Louisa van den Bergh, the classes are perfect for any lovely lady who is pregnant in London, especially those of you who are a long way from “home.”
Louisa has a team of professionals (a GP, a paediatrician, a breastfeeding consultant, an obstetric physiotherapist and a nutritionist) who will guide you through your pregnancy, delivery and beyond.
For example, whereas one session might focus on bathing your baby, another might cover topics like sleep regression ages. In case you have never heard of this phenomenon before, a sleep regression describes a period of time (lasting approximately 3 to 6 weeks) when a baby or toddler who has been sleeping well suddenly starts waking at night, taking short naps, or skipping naps for no apparent reason. Above all, identifying these stages can help parents to discover how to move past them.
A girlfriend of mine said she particularly appreciated the way Lulubaby spent so much time preparing her for what life with a baby is really like. Louisa also offers postnatal follow up support which is especially useful if you are having problems feeding or are just totally sleep-deprived. The classes are held in SW London in Louisa’s zen-like Fulham house where you will make friends over tea, cake and baby chat.
Here are a few other testimonials:
