A new com­mu­nity ser­vice is be­ing launched to­mor­row, of­fer­ing free ad­vice and cof­fee to new moth­ers from trained Kar­i­tane nurses.

Named Cribtalk, the ser­vice has been set up by the Kar­i­tane Nurses and Nan­nies Bureau.

Meet­ings will be held in Grey Lynn once a month.

Bureau man­ager Kirsten Var­ley says the ini­tia­tive was de­signed to give new par­ents a re­laxed way to meet over tea or cof­fee while gain­ing valu­able in­sights from ex­pe­ri­enced nurses.

“While there are var­i­ous cof­fee groups for new par­ents, some peo­ple find it too much to pro­vide morn­ing tea for 10 peo­ple in their own home while also looking af­ter their new­born,” she says.

“Cribtalk gives peo­ple the chance to meet other new par­ents in a ca­sual, non-pres­sured en­vi­ron­ment and at the same time ask the ex­perts for ad­vice about ba­bies.”

The ses­sions will be held at 1 Walling­ford St, Grey Lynn, on the first Thurs­day of ev­ery month from 9am to 3pm.

Ring 575-7174 for more in­for­ma­tion.
