APUK South Lanarkshire & GlasgowAPUK South Lanarkshire & Glasgow is a relatively new group, operating just over two years. The group is facilitated by Cindy and Laura. Cindy is a home educating mum of two energetic boys, a CalmFamily Consultant, and a Psychologist specialising in working with families, children and young people. Laura is busy mum of three, and a Project Manager in Construction with a background of youth work and a passion for attachment/gentle/connected parenting. We have some lovely volunteers who help run meets, and members support each other in all manners of parenting. The group is growing steadily and has a regular group of parents with babies and toddlers, as well as older children, meeting monthly (one meet is in South Lanarkshire, and a separate meet is in Glasgow as the group covers a massive area). Meets tend to be a causal event where kids can play and parents can chat about all things that they can’t always talk about with their friends (the joys of breastfeeding toddlers, tandem feeding, bedsharing with toddlers, and someone’s latest sling purchase often are topics of discussion). Breastfeeding and sling support is provided if needed, but it is better to get in touch beforehand to let the facilitators know your needs as meets are often in social places like soft play centres or outdoors in parks. We love meeting parents in all stages of the parenting journey and are keen to support you along the way. We hope to meet you on our Facebook Page and/or Group and in person!
