About Us

Bradford Baby-Net was originally formed as a collaboration between Growing Needs and Church Street Practice in Bradford on Avon. With the closure of Growing Needs, the courses were suspended pending a new venue. Osteopaths from the Sunrise Osteopathic Clinic for Kids (S.O.C.K.)  invite other local experts to join them in helping to deliver the post-natal course.
