This course is run by Ward 35’s Occupational Therapist.
OTea and Biscuits is a safe, friendly place to spend some one-to-one time with your baby and get to meet some new friends (or join some old ones!) who have also spent time on Ward 35 (the Neonatal Unit) at the RVI. Other Ward 35 Allied Health Professionals will also join some of the sessions.
Each session starts with an educational talk specific to pre-term health and development and finishes with OTea and Biscuits - free time to talk about your baby and how you are.
