The Mini First Aid online course has been developed so it is interactive, confirms understanding and tests learning, making it truly engaging. Once complete, parents feel confident in applying the knowledge they have just learned. Like our award-winning practical classes, the online course covers CPR, Choking, Bumps, Burns, Breaks, Bleeding, Febrile Seizures, Meningitis and Sepsis Awareness. The course takes two hours in total, but can be paused and returned to, making it perfect if parents are distracted or called away by their little one (s).

The NSPCC Pregnancy in Mind service is for pregnant women who are experiencing anxiety and/or depression. We know that pregnancy can be an anxious time for many women and that the current circumstances are likely to be causing additional stress and uncertainty.
We are offering a groupwork programme to be delivered remotely over 6 sessions. The focus is around reducing anxiety/improving mood and providing techniques and strategies to manage this. The groups will be no more than 6 participants and will also give you the opportunity to have virtual contact with other parents to be.
We are also able to offer a one to one service remotely if you are unable to attend the group.
Once you’ve contacted us a worker will be allocated and they will be in touch to have a chat with you about your needs so they can make sure the sessions offer you the support you need.
Please get in touch to find out how we can offer you support. If a worker isn’t immediately available then someone will get back in touch as soon as possible.
Please leave your name, contact number and email address.

Are you a breastfeeding mum? Or looking to buy a gift for a new mum? If so, this is for you!
I recently launched Sienna Apparel, an eco-friendly breastfeeding clothing brand, designed to help mamas feel more like themselves, and breastfeed without the stress and faff! After finding out the hard way that most breastfeeding clothes were really frustrating, and just ‘not me’ – something so many breastfeeding mums struggle with!
Gift Vouchers/Cards are available too for anyone who wants to treat their friends and loved ones who are having their babies during this period of lockdown/isolation – they are hand made & come with a personalised message.
So if receiving something stylish & comfy that makes breastfeeding faff free through your letterbox would perk your week up – or one of your new mum friends! – then visit www.siennaapparel.co.uk to order use discount code YORK5 for £5 off your order (including sweatshirts which are in the end of season sale! )
Learning to sign with your little one can allow smooth communication when s/he is tired, hurt or frustrated, and give you insight into their wider needs and thoughts. Sing and Sign classes are fun and gentle, promoting responsiveness to your child. Due to Covid-19 we are now online as Sing and Sign@Home. Our ten week courses combine streamed video classes (packed with action songs, pictures, rhymes, props, a special cat called ‘Jessie’ and are available to watch as many times as you wish each week), with weekly ‘live’ Zoom sessions run by Anna, York’s local Sing and Sign franchisee and class WhatsApps, too. Each week centres around a theme with clear signs of the week that are revisited often so that you are able to consolidate your learning.
Never signed before? No problem, it’s easy! Not a great singer? Your baby (and we!) really don’t mind! Have twins? They attend as two-for-one!
