Supporting Birth and Parenting - in English in the Basel area
We are proud to be a part of the Basel Children's Trust (BCT) and provide the prenatal and postnatal education and support for this wonderful organisation. In conjunction with the BCT, Mignon helps families in Basel, around Alsace and across Switzerland to find their way in happy, confident parenting with their sweet babies. All new and growing families need information and support - particularly when their own families are a long way away. We provide prenatal education and support, baby sling courses, help and information with cloth nappies/diapers, postnatal support and information.
Currently classes and support are available both face to face and online, including some very active and supportive WhatsApp groups. Please contact me for more details.
