And your health visitor/midwife/the woman at the dr's surgery who does all the baby-weighing/measuring/etc (sorry, but I always get the names of these people wrong) should also be able to put you in the way of the groups and classes run by Sthk Council.
The council run a lot of different classes (baby massage, baby first aid, pregnancy yoga, postnatal keep fit, etc), and Mrs I's experience of the couple of them that she's been on is that they're decently funded, of a good standard, free, and woefully underattended.
I have read your above posts and thought you would be interested to know that every Thursday a group of mothers meet and bring their children along to our restaurant. We have a large space ideal for pushchairs, and we also have a baby changing room and kids menu available everyday for older children. We also have daily lunch offers available, should you want more than just a coffee and cake, from Tuesday - Friday 12pm - 5pm (please note we are closed on Mondays).
Please come along and get to know other mums and babies in the area, we look forward to seeing you!
