Mother and Baby Welfare Seminars
Saturday 2 June, Saturday 9 June and Saturday 16 June 2012

There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.’

BAPS Charities organised a series of seminars for young parents to raise awareness about and provide guidance on the welfare of new mothers and babies.

Held on the first three Saturdays of June at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London, the sessions were led by guest speaker Dr Shreelata Datta, a Senior Registrar in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at St Thomas’ Hospital, London.

The seminars covered four main areas:

  • Signs of Labour
  • Active Birth
  • Breastfeeding
  • Baby and Beyond

The series was specifically aimed at providing expectant couples personal medical advice in a familiar and friendly environment. They were encouraged to interact with each other as well as with the medical experts in asking questions.

The lectures were very well received by all the couples, who said they found them informative, helpful and reassuring.
