Support, advice and a good time
We have a very active WhatsApp and Facebook Group which are both private and only available to parents that have been on GRH NNU. Both areas are a safe space for parents to ask questions, to ask for support, advice and very often just some reassurance from other parents.
Prior to COVID we ran a weekly group for parents to come along and bring their babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers to. Activities included messy play, craft activities, but also time for parents to have a hot cuppa and some cake! We are hoping to be able to bring this group back. We know that it can be daunting to go to regular baby groups, especially if babies are still on oxygen or with additional needs.
Since forming, the group has grown, and lifelong friendships have been formed. Many playdates in the park have been arranged and a few fun evenings out without babies and toddlers.
