Wow! I cannot believe we have been open for 1 month already!
1st of all, let me say a huge Thank You!
Thank you for embracing us. For all of the beautiful conversations we have already had, for bringing in your gorgeous children, for trying our classes, for telling your friends and for giving us so much encouragement - It truly means the world.
Thank you also to all the people who helped us bring this vision to life along the way. From family and friends to people in the industry, to our builders and of course the amazing Harbord Diggers.
I started Beaches Baby as a way of connecting people in parenting. To shake the isolation of parenthood. The help people find resources. To start conversations.
I am so proud to say that we have already connected some beautiful isolated Mums to each other and they now have a little group that catches up, they feel like they have known each other forever.
I am also proud that we have helped a Mum struggling with the physical side of recovery post birth find out about access to Medicare covered Physio that she didn’t previously know was available.
We have talked with Mums about relationship breakdown, physical post birth trauma and becoming parents of two children.
I’m proud that we have a Dad’s Club starting this Sunday and I know we are going to achieve amazing things there. It’s a space, run by a Dad, for Dads to connect them so they have their own safe space to share and connect and have fun with their little ones.
We have so much further to go.
We will continue having important conversations with everyone that walks into our space. Our staff and teachers are all incredibly kind and have the experience of having been where you are.
We are bringing some amazing experts in for some important and informative workshops on Saturdays for the rest of the year.
Want to know how to talk to your kids about their bodies, strangers and know concerning signs without scaring them or yourself? Then Kate Fylan’s Share Don’t Scare workshop is for you.
She also has a workshop about Understanding the Preschooler Mindset.
Jackie Gorman is a postnatal guru! She specialises in taking care of Mums in the 4th Trimester (the first 3 months post birth). Our Morning Tea and 4th Trimester Workshop will help you understand how to take care of yourself in this important life transition.
Helena Mooney from Parenting with Play will be running workshops on how to deal with tantrums and toddlers!
Mitch from Beaches First Aid is running our Family First Aid class.
And our classes including our Mums & Bubs Yoga / Meditation / Art Sensory / Music and more will be continuing with more being added as we fill our spaces.
So much to look forward to!
We are so happy that you love the range of beautiful products we have in store, we are carefully curating useful products and some adorable gifts and toys.
Check out some of the pics from our 1st month and we cannot wait to welcome you in for more activities, conversations, education and fun!
Lots of love,
Peta & the Beaches Baby Team!
