Baby Bee Project 

Taking place in the ABC Lab in St Mary’s quad, the “ABC Baby Bee” is a group for pregnant mums and those with young infants (0-5 months or so). It’s aimed at promoting shared experiences- both sharing between mums, and between mums and their child.

It’ll be a space to chat over coffee with other mums about the ups and downs you’re experiencing, and hear a little bit about research in infant psychology all about the value of shared experiences. We hope the group will help combat the feelings of uncertainty and isolation that can come with this stage of motherhood. Our aim is to provide useful information that you can use in your own unique relationship with your child, rather than simply telling you what you should and shouldn’t do!

The group is free, but spaces are limited, so sign up by emailing You can also contact this address with any questions you might have.
