Midwife Club

What is it about?

The purpose of the Midwife Club is for children to explore and learn about pregnancy, childbirth, babies, breastfeeding and more in a safe environment in a positive, playful and child-led way. They learn through exploration of prompts and materials, play, asking questions, joining art and craft activities any time they wish to.

The Midwife Club is also for all women (and their partners) who are planning a baby, are pregnant or have had a baby recently. You can come and have an informal chat about any childbearing related topic, family planning, woman’s health, breastfeeding and more.

The club is sponsored by myself and is free to attend for all families who come to CM on Fridays. If you would like to give a donation to help cover the cost of running the club, you can donate to a donations box on the day or via paypal.me/midwifeclub
