become a baby rocks parent craft mentor

Baby ROCKS is our parent craft class which will guide parents gently along the path to parenthood.  The sessions provide parents with knowledge and aims to improve the wellbeing and confidence of both parents following the birth of their gorgeous new baby.  

Baby ROCKS was created by Nicola Bradley a registered midwife and nurse who is also a mum of three.  Through her experience of working with parents-to-be and guiding them on their journey to their baby’s birth it became apparent that once they had “the whole birth thing sorted” they were seeking information about providing the basic care needs for their newborn and what to expect in the postnatal period.  And so Baby ROCKS was born!

How can baby rocks be offered to parents?

  • It is suitable as a stand-alone course or as an add on to the Birth ROCKS programme.

  • It can be taught one-to-one or in a group setting

  • The course can be provided in the parent’s home or suitable venue

  • Information given to parents will be given over a 3-4 hour period depending on class size and discussion.

  • A maximum of five couples is advisable
