So much to share..
So June has been a really bumper month. Workshops came so thick & fast it was hard to keep up ! We were test new material in London , West midlands & south west england all in a two week frenzy. Some key themes already springing to life thanks to Anna & Carrie superb graphic facilitators
Fab to be able to help spread the word about @dadpaduk
& their brand new neonatal version launched on Father’s Day
Gill took a trip to Corby
Laura & I made a vlog watch us here about our London MVP work. Plus access our MVP commissioning guidance
The following week I was busy fronting a session on personalised care at the new British Intrapartum Care Society
& at RCOG all in the same week!
It seems incredible that 3 months have taken us from the snow of the beast of the east to the heatwave ☀️. From planning & calling for material to testing new #MindNBody ideas. We can only achieve this amazing work due to the contributions each & every woman, midwife, health visitor , GP, obs, anaesthetist, support workers & more make on an everyday basis THANK YOU!!!
