Mumsnet to launch its first parent aid event 'Bumpfest'

Mumsnet, the UK’s biggest parenting website is hosting Bumpfest, a day-long event which will cover everything from birth through to weaning, and everything inbetween at London, 30 Euston Square, on 27 September.

The event has been designed to ensure parents-to-be leave with the know how to cope after birth. There will be master classes on routines, development, bonding and sleep.

As well as providing realistic advice from those who’ve given birth, attendees will hear from parenting experts as well as being able to meet others on the precipice of parenthood.

Speakers include BBC journalist and presenter Kate Silverton, Gill Rapley of Unicef UK’s Baby Friendly Initiative, and Linda Geddes, author of ‘Bumpology.

Justine Roberts, founder of Mumsnet, said: “One of the joys of Mumsnet is that you can come on at any time - day or night - and ask for advice from those who know when you suddenly find yourself expecting and later confronted with a small human.

“We wanted to turn the virtual support group into a real-world one - which is why we're hosting our very first Bumpfest.”

Aldi will sponsor the event, bringing the retailer’s award-winning baby products designed to help new mums on their journey through motherhood.

The event, which runs from 9am to 5pm, will cost £65 with a special discount for partners with two tickets costing £95.
