Thank you Karen for providing an invaluable insight into some hot topics surrounding the care of newborn babies. I particularly enjoyed baby sensory, I  have noticed my little one really enjoying playtime now, the stimulation has also promoted better sleep too. 

It was a pleasure to take part on the course, I will be lost on Wednesday mornings now! I would highly recommend the course to new mums looking for some friendly advice/hoping to expand their mummy circle.
