Mummas & Beans baby classes are suitable from birth and will grow with your baby. We start with Newborn, following through to Baby Massage, Sensory Baby Yoga and finishing with our messy play sessions, Sensory Mummas. You can join us with your newborn baby or when your baby is older. You will meet mums with babies the same age as you, and you can start your Mummas and Beans journey whenever you are ready.
-Newborn, birth up to 3months
This course is perfectly suited to tiny babies, the class needs to be tailored to their tiny bodies, and needs. We know, that in those first few weeks and months, you want to meet others at the same stage of motherhood as you, to make that all important friend and support network.
The course will run over 6 weeks, we will cover:
- Early Days Baby Massage
- Baby Reflexology
- Baby Sleep
- Weaning and more
We will sit, chat, learn make friends, and eat cake! All the things a Mumma needs whilst coping with a newborn!
Suitable for babies up to 5m (at the start of the course). Over the course of the 6 weeks you will learn a full baby massage routine. As the course progresses we will add in some gentle baby yoga and sensory play.
-Sensory Baby Yoga
Lively, sensory & fun! This class is as popular with mums as it is with babies! Suitable from 4/5m to crawling (older babies will be more suited to our Stage 2 class – 7/8m to walking).
This isn’t like other more traditional mum and baby yoga classes which focus primarily on postnatal yoga for Mum. (We can recommend some excellent teachers locally if this is what you are after)
Our class has been specially designed for your little one with age appropriate content targeted to support their specific stage of development including moves and exercises to help Increase their strength, coordination, balance and spatial awareness. All crucial whilst they are learning how to crawl & walk.
Our sensory play elements include the absolute favourite “what’s in the box” puppets, bubbles, parachutes, twinkly lights and a whole host of other props for them to use in structured play to stimulate all their senses.
Classes will run at St Patricks Church Hall, 14 Red Hill, Chislehurst, BR7 6DB on Tuesdays. The hall is situated behind St. Patrick’s Church. The entrance to the hall is of Albany Road. There is plenty of parking on site or the surrounding roads. And several busses stop nearby including 162, 61, R7, 160, 273, 638.
I am a proud mum of two gorgeous children, Lenny (2011) and Leila (2018). They are my greatest achievement in life.
Even though I had experience looking after newborns, nothing quite prepared me for the exciting ride of having my own! The journey has also been so completely different with both of them. What worked seven years ago with my first, has not always worked with number two and I keep learning new things all the time.
For twenty years I have worked with children, including babies and children with special needs and complex learning difficulties. I have also been running baby and toddler music classes at Finnish Saturday school since Lenny was a baby. I look forward to being able to share all that I’ve learned over the years in my classes and also learning all the clever tricks and tips you’ll share with me!
When I came across Mummas and Beans I was instantly drawn to the non-judgemental ethos and I knew this was the perfect next step for me! I truly believe that with my experience and the amazing Mummas and Beans classes, specifically tailored to babies age and devlopment, I will be able to offer the best experience for the Mummas and Beans in and around Chislehurst and Bromley.
I look forward to meeting all the gorgeous new babies and helping you Mummas create the all important friendships to support you on this amazing journey.
