"I really wish I'd known about BabyCalm before I had my baby!" Laura, Putney
BabyCalm™ Workshops at your home
All babies and new parents deserve the calmest start. New babies often cry lots and sleep little, parents often feel unsupported, tired and confused. I help parents understand how to calm their baby’s crying, avoid colic and aid restful sleep.
BabyCalm™ is a unique concept presented through classes and literature that aims to help new parents to raise their baby with confidence. BabyCalm™ answers the question "Why do babies cry?" and helps new parents understand how to calm their baby’s crying, avoid colic and aid restful sleep; turning crying babies and stressed parents into calmer babies and happier parents!BabyCalm™ logo
I offer three different courses, in group settings and privately in your own home. Book Now or phone 07806 994636 for further details.

"The baby massage was great. My baby really calmed down! Thank you." Gabriella, Richmond
"It's good to feel encouraged. I'm so surrounded by conflicting advice and people telling me to do it a certain way. I tend to focus on the neagative, so thank you so much for the encouragement to do things my way". Katrin, Balham
The BabyCalm™ Antenatal Workshop introduces new parents to reasons that babies are commonly unsettled, including an explanation of baby colic and common reasons babies cry, helping them to understand their baby before they are even born! You will learn how to be a confident mum or dad able to welcome your baby into a world where they are calmer and more settled and be armed with many techniques to make your baby's transition from womb to world as smooth and comfortable as possible, avoid colic and aid sleep for the whole family.
You will learn how to calm a crying baby and soothe colic as well as the secrets of how to get more sleep at night and how to get your baby to nap easily during the day.
Dads are actively encouraged to attend this workshop, we focus on the importance of fathers and roles that dads may play to support the mother and bond with their baby.
This 3-hour workshop is most suited to couples between 30 weeks and 38 weeks of pregnancy. Book Now
The BabyCalm® Baby Calming Parenting Course (4 x 2 hours)
The BabyCalm™ Baby Calming Parenting Course is a unique 4-week (8-hour) course, designed for new mothers and babies, incorporating baby calming and communication skills, interactive class discussion of many topics that new mums commonly face (such as birth debriefing, baby feeding worries, bonding with your baby, baby colic, baby reflux, constipation and wind in babies, lack of sleep and concerns about the health and wellbeing of their new baby) and baby touch therapy - a light baby massage routine developed by BabyCalmTM.
The classes will help you to bond with your new baby, help him or her to be a calm and happy baby, free of colic, and help you to experience a stress free relationship of trust, confidence and calm.
My classes also provide an invaluable opportunity for you to make new friends. If you would like to learn to trust your own maternal instinct rather than follow rules and routines set out by other so called “experts”, this is the course for you!
This course is most suited to newborn babies from birth to 20 weeks of age.
BabyCalm® Colic and Crying Workshop (3 hours)
The BabyCalm™ Colic and Crying Workshop is intended as an emergency "one off" class to help new parents whose babies are suffering from prolonged crying and/or baby colic and fretful sleep.
I will firstly help you to understand why your baby is so unsettled and then demonstrate many techniques and tools to help your baby settle, calm colic and sleep better!
My aim is to help you to understand why your baby is unhappy and show you the tools to have a calm and happy baby. I’ll also help you build confidence in your own instincts and abilities.
This workshop is often a light bulb moment for new parents with many commenting that they wish they had known about BabyCalm before their baby was born or being previously confused by a stream of baby books all giving different advice!
This is one of the most rewarding classes to teach, as the results are so astoundingly quick. Parents literally walk out with a much calmer baby and a smile on their face!
I also offer this class privately in your own home, as I understand how difficult it can be to get out with a new baby.
This 3-hour class is most suited to newborn babies from birth to 10 weeks of age. Book Now

How do I book a course?
It’s easy to book a BabyCalm™ course or workshop. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07806 994636
Can I bring older children to a BabyCalm™ course or workshop?
No. As much as we adore all children, BabyCalm™ aims to provide a calm and peaceful environment and this is not always possible with toddlers and older children present as I am sure you’ll understand.
I don’t like routine based training methods or lots of crying so is BabyCalm™ the course for me?
Rest assured that I dislike these methods too! I will never teach you to let your baby "cry it out" or control their crying in any way. The BabyCalm™ ethos is completely different to most “baby experts” such as Gina Ford, Tizzie Hall and Jo Tantum. I do not set routines or position myself as the expert. Instead I raise confidence in parents to trust their own instincts.
Is it possible to have a private BabyCalm™ course or workshop?
Yes of course. I am really happy to do this. This option will however include an extra charge but many parents believe this option is extremely worthwhile particularly in the early days if they are struggling with a crying baby suffering colic and sleep deprivation. Please email me at email@example.com or call 07806 994636 for more information or to arrange a private session.
Do you offer refunds if I miss a class?
No. As I am unable to offer your missed class to anyone else, I can’t offer you a refund although you would be able to attend the session you have missed on a subsequent group course at no additional cost.
