Nichola, of Reeves Way, Armthorpe runs the classes with the help of sister Jenna Caughey.

Nichola said: “Being a mummy is the best job in the world, but it’s the hardest job in the world.

“It’s so rewarding but it’s a massive life change, your social circle changes and it can be very isolating.

“It makes such a difference to be able to meet up with other parents who are going through the same thing, have someone on hand to ask questions about things like breast feeding, sleep routines.”
