Why should I choose The Midwife House for my learning?

All content is fresh and engaging with up-to-date information. TMH gives you TIME to gain the extras alongside your clinical care.  Make friends, with lots of opportunity to chat.  Meeting people with different due dates means connecting to a whole variety of support.   All TMH services are relaxed, non-judgemental, interactive and friendly.

are there tmh postnatal groups for after the birth?

Yes! TMH host the TMH Newborn Club & TMH Feeding Cafe.  The land of parenting is amazing, rocky and seems to exist in a time-zone with way more nighttime hours.  The TMH Newborn Club is easy to drop into.  Literally wake up and come.  A lovely place to just be - glamourous mum, PJ mum, what day is it mum and can I go back to work yet mum.  It's a group to try before going out to the bigger baby groups because TMH normalises 24/7 parenting and gives you the chance to learn a little from a top topic of the week.  And if you're a second time plus mum, it's a good place to offload, resurface and be a bit of you!  Remember it's your first time as a second time plus mum too!

do you have any groups that are free?

YES!!! The TMH Feeding Cafe is a free group for anyone feeding a newborn baby in any way!  All feeding choices welcomed and supported!  It's a group to just turn up at, ask questions, see other adults and hopefully leave feeling a little wiser, or at the very least knowing you are amazing and doing just fine.

Do i need to be breastfeeding to come to the TMH feeding cafe?

The easy answer is nope. Benefit from our skills and knowledge with breastfeeding, mixed feeding, formula feeding, expressing and so on.  It's as much about the weekly social meet up as it is about getting your baby fed.

Who can attend a workshop, course or postnatal group?

This is an easy answer - ANYONE! You can attend alone or bring someone with you if you prefer.  What's important is that we are there for you!  So come with a friend, parent, partner or just by yourself, a lot of people do!

When should I book on?

This decision is entirely yours!  Everyone has different levels of knowledge, skill and confidence, so what works for you, is fine with us! It's an idea to book after your 12-week scan and before you're in labour but other than that you decide!
