‘Push It Real Good’ Buggy Walk

11am – Pittville Park – Outside the Pump Rooms.

Upcoming dates for the diary…

Thursday 21st March

Friday 29th March 

 

We have teamed up with Cheltenhammaman and launched “Push It Real Good’ buggy walks. Adapted from Clemmie (@mother_of_daughters from Instagram). Now Clemmie is the brains behind Push it Real Good as she hosts them regularly for the mums of Crystal Palace in London. But, her wondrous ideas are spreading and we here in Gloucestershire WANT IN! It is about local mums walking together and having the chance to create a community and support network. One mum on the walk explained about her struggles in the early days of parenthood. She would be at home in her dressing gown at 3 ‘o’ clock in the afternoon sobbing whilst dunking biscuits into a cold cup of tea. She said what made it worse was thinking that she was failing as a mum and doing something wrong as no one talks about this unfiltered side of new mummy hood. *Enter mum squad.* Myself and another mum reassured her that we were the same!

This instant ‘Phew!’ moment is the reason why we started the buggy walks. Not just so we can tell mums that it’s ok to not be ok, but have mums finding comfort in each other by sharing their own experiences. Having a support network is so important when pregnant and having a new baby. This was also one of the main reasons I wanted to start teaching antenatal classes, not just to educate and empower women about childbirth and to prep couples for having a newborn, but also to bring local mums together. The support you get from a group of mums is priceless. The importance of having a close knit mum network is invaluable in those early days. Something that we can sew the seeds for through antenatal classes and continue to develop through the buggy walks.

So we would love to see you at “Push it real good’ Gloucestershire. Come and meet a mum, support your local girl gang & your local mum squad.

You can bring your bump, a buggy, a toddler, a mate or just yourself. We will have some fresh air, a light stroll and a good old fashioned chin wag. Of course there will be time for coffee and a slice of cake after at The Boathouse, (or The Central Cross Cafe in the winter) after all that walking and talking we would have earned it.

Don’t forget to find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

#MyBumptoBabyChapter and an AWESOME review from Rachel and Alex who had their baby boy just over a week ago... isn’t he scrummy ❤️ Congratulations to you both!!!

“8 days in and finally got 5 minutes....

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Beth and her amazing @thebumptobabychapter classes! Both myself and Alex thoroughly enjoyed every session; for Beth’s never ending knowledge on everything labour and baby related, her total honesty that made the scary bits weirdly not seem so scary anymore; and her general funny and welcoming attitude 🥰 we were genuinely sad when our sessions came to an end as they had been the highlight of our week!

We learnt so much during our classes that really prepared us both for the birth and aftercare of our little Archie 😍 even during my brief moments of panic where I stopped using my breathing effectively, Alex was right by my side to remind me and to breath through it with me to get me back on track, honestly couldn’t have done it without his support and encouragement!!

Beth was also completely respectful of our decision not to post anything pregnancy related until after the safe arrival of our little boy, strategically putting us on the end of our group photo so we could be cropped out!! Might seem a daft thing to say, but for anyone that wishes to do the same, please don’t be put off attending these sessions as your wishes will absolutely be respected ☺️

It also gave us the opportunity to meet the loveliest couples, which has been great to share experiences both pre and post baby at all hours of the day.... and night 🕢😴!! So excited to get a date in the diary for a reunion with all our beautiful bundles 😍”
