Welcome to 6WeekSocial
6WeekSocial is a postnatal, educational, support course for mums and their new babies to meet and bond with other local mums. You will gain a wealth of knowledge and insight provided by a team of specialists, delivered over 6 weekly, 1 hour sessions.
For over 8 years, 6WeekSocial has been supporting mums emotionally, informatively and to connect socially.
Our 6WeekSocial course provides you with skills and support to enjoy your time with your baby, confident in the knowledge that you're doing brilliantly (whether you've brushed your hair and changed out of your Pj's, or not). The support of other mum's can be a life line in those early months and beyond.
“I joined 6WeekSocial 2 weeks after my son was born, as I wanted to have something to look forward to in the first few, very difficult weeks, where you feel like you have no structure. I loved the focus of the sessions around recovering from birth and support for women's health and wellbeing. It was a great opportunity to meet other mums in the same head space and bring some focus on looking after, and being kind to yourself.”
Sam - September/October course, Hertford

"I can highly recommend 6WeekSocial. The mums I have meet I now call friends and we are already planning on meeting up after the course has finished.
5 weeks down the line I am so glad I signed up to the course as I've really enjoyed not only meeting the other mums and their babies but the talks by the experts have been great."

Keeping safe during Covid-19
Being pregnant or having recently given birth during this global pandemic will have heightened so many feelings and emotions and having other mums who are experiencing this too will be even more valuable as we move through this together.
With the governments proposed guidelines for easing the restrictions moving to step 2 from April 12th, we are provisionally preparing to offer our future courses starting with our April/May sessions in person across all locations in Hertford, Hitchin and Biggleswade.
We will of course be implementing all social distancing requirement's and Covid safe practices in all locations. following guidance received from the local authorities environmental health department to ensure safe Covid practice.
All decisions made with regards to social meet-ups will be in line with the current government guide lines.
