Suffolk Babies is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, providing high quality, affordable education, continuity and support from pregnancy to preschool.
We provide birthing courses, and parent and baby classes, right through into toddlerhood. From our centre in Kesgrave, near Ipswich, and across the Central and East Suffolk area, we are a one-stop-shop for up to date, respected and high quality education and support. We firmly believe in building a community for parents, to help them through a time of massive change, which can be difficult or stressful without the right support.
All our profits go into funding our free Essential Preparation for Birth Workshop, which provides the very best antenatal education for ALL couples in the Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust area.
During these classes you will explore essential elements of birthing, preparing both your mind and body for the journey ahead. Whatever your birth plan, these classes will support you in your path to a positive birthing experience.
This is a first step, progressive course for mums and babies from 4/6wks to 3-5months. Over our 6wk programme you will learn a full body massage for your baby, we will incorporate some gentle baby yoga routines, and finish with our lovely social baby time.
If you’re looking for a colourful, bright and lively baby class, which includes baby yoga movements for your baby, sensory stimulation and lots of songs, then we have the class for you! Explorers is suitable for babies from 4/5m up to crawling.
This class offers the perfect next step to children who are ready to graduate from Explorers. This class is suitable for babies that are beginning to move, whether that be on their bottoms, rolling or crawling – they do not have to be fully mobile.
This class is open to children who are confident walkers to pre-schoolers as well as families with multiple children that need activities that can be used for a mixed age group. The class will deliver elements of toddler yoga, encouraging children to use movement, stretches and physical expression to take part in a wide variety of songs, some of which contain elements of story to develop themes and ideas.
For children aged 2 and a half to 4 years. A fun and energetic class for pre-schoolers. A chance to discover a new story every week, exploring the world of that book using music and movement. Created with the Early Years Foundation Stage in mind, your child will receive their own passport to the EYFS demonstrating how they are hitting the EYFS goals.
A Whole Lot of Mess! is a brand new class from Suffolk Babies designed to aid your little person's sensory development. The class is packed full of messy play, suitable for 6 months to 3 years.
Courses or workshops to help you understand your toddler's brain development and deal with common issues that arise, giving you a more harmonious relationship.
Our 4 hour workshop is offered free of charge to all pregnant women and their birth partner in the Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust area, and is the most time efficient way to prepare yourself and your birth partner for labour and the early days with your new baby.
