BringBaby

Bring your baby while you learn


BringBaby aims to provide educational updates to those on parental leave, career breaks or recently returned to work.

Each update event will include educational workshops and a baby-centred session such as baby yoga, massage or music.

All events are open to those with or without babies. Small group discussions will replace baby-centred sessions for those attending without a baby.
