grandparents' refresher course

to add to your own wealth of experience

Expecting Logo

An update to enable you to be the best support to your children & the best grandparents to your grandchildren.

We're not teaching grandmothers (or grandfathers) to suck eggs! We fully recognise you have years of experience & wisdom to impart. You can be an incredible part of the village it takes to raise your grandchild. Anthropologists point out that one reason humans have flourished is because of the role of grandparents in societies.

it's been a while..

It may have been 2, 3 or even 4 decades since your children were babies!

We're therefore offering an update to enable you to be acquainted with the best practice. We recognise that some things come full circle, but evidence based research also shows there are some safer practices since yours were small.

perhaps you're pregnant & feel your parents or in-laws would benefit...

As an expert midwife, I have decades of experience walking alongside literally thousands of parents of bumps & babies. I've talked to clients about what they wish someone had explained to their parents' generation. Allow me to explain the evidence based changes that may have developed since you were little.

I've seen grandparents make an enormous difference to pregnancies & parenting...for the better & sometimes for the worse. I've seen relationships grow & deepen as a new found mutual respect has developed & I've also sadly seen relationships break down or become the source of much stress & strain. My intention is that this video helps prevent the latter & encourages the former.

what clients say about us

I know this will be welcomed by many grandparents as it's a struggle to keep up with all the new 'rules'. Freya explains the reasoning behind them which makes them easier to understand & accept. Striking the balance between helping & taking over is covered comprehensively.
Alyson, Glasgow
This is honouring to previous ways of doing things whilst bringing us up to date with good explanations.

A great video helping new grandparents to feel well equipped to support their kids.
Sam, Stafford
We're meant to live in community, not in isolation. Not to be dependent on one another but certainly not to be independent of one another - rather to live interdependently - a healthy connection & a healthy reliance. There is so much to be gained for everyone from the generation above & below us. Let's work together!
