Bump to Breast and Umbilical Chords Activity Session 1

19th October 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


*Registration required for this event*

This session for the whole family focuses on pregnancy and early years health alongside arts, creativity and music. Come along for screen printing and music making with other families and community peers.

A Better Start Southend encourages you to join us with the team at YMCA Southend to come along, find support, link with others and try out creative activities to support your journey. We know how vital sharing resources and accessing health professionals are at this sensitive stage. The Bump to Breast team will be on hand for additional learning and advice, allowing you to give your little one, the best possible healthy and happy start in life. This group-based session includes information for those who wish to breastfeed, from antenatal to post-natal.

While you are with us, you and your child, or expectant partner can join in the fun with instruments on hand from YMCA Southend and a special sing-along with the Umbilical Chords project! Copies of the Breastfeeding in Southend Picture Book as well as items that families have printed themselves are available to take home.

This session is open to all Southend families with children under 4 years old. Please pre-register, limited spaces are available. Accessible parking, toilet and baby changing facilities are available. If you can no longer attend once you’ve registered you will be able to cancel your place through your registration confirmation email, to release your place to someone on the waiting list.

Please note all Festival of Conversations may have a photographer and videographer present to capture the session. There will be an option to opt out of any media consent upon arrival at the session
