Support for new mums at Basingstoke’s Playday 2015 event

Just in case you have missed it, National Playdays is on tomorrow and it’s FAB!

Support for new mums at Basingstoke’s Playday 2015 event

Basingstoke’s NCT (National Childbirth Trust) will be offering new mums a welcome break from the fun-filled mayhem of this year’s National Playday event on August 5, 2015.

The free family event in Eastrop Park, Eastrop Lane, Basingstoke, allows children to take part in craft activities, tumble over soft play shapes, bounce on inflatables and even do some pond dipping.

But volunteers from Basingstoke’s NCT will be on hand offering a discrete space for new mums to change or feed their babies as well as offering taster sessions in baby massage and advice from trained breast feeding counsellors.

Kimberly Powers, Co-Chair of the Basingstoke branch, said: “Playday is a fantastic family event and the children love it. But if you have a young baby, you might want somewhere a little more comfortable and private to feed to or change them.

“We’re here to support parents through the day-to-day practicalities of parenthood and to introduce mums and dads to other parents so come along and find out more. Or book yourself on to a free taster session for our baby massage course. Benefits can include strengthening your bond with your baby and an ever sought-after improvement in sleep.”
