What is The Berry and Wanda Programme?

The Berry & Wanda Programme was created by Laura Wooldridge and brought to life with illustrations by Julie Dhemiah Meacham and formatted into professional resources and branding by Carly Mills in 2020. All women who are small business owners that were based in Dudley, West Midlands, UK. 

The purpose of The Berry and Wanda Programme is to empower families with well-being knowledge, tools and resources. 

You are never too young to start learning how to support your mental, emotional and spiritual health. With all of the new research and evidence that is arising of how early we are affected by stress, and the potential long term implications simply reinforces the importance and positive impact that The Berry and Wanda Programme can have for families and individuals. 

 

 

The Programme is split into 'BirthMind' which focuses on Pre-conception to early Post-Natal Support with a variety of classes and workshops that combine knowledge, with a range of holistic practices and techniques to support your journey and 'Holistic Practices for Children' which include a range of classes, workshops and resources that include children's picture books that support little ones from birth onwards.

Berry and Wanda Books

The Berry and Wanda Children's Picture books were created to work alongside the various workshops and classes. Bringing story and rhyme into other holistic practice can help to build interest, engagement, fun and more. The stories were such a hit that over time we have made them available in paperback and ebook format so that they can be enjoyed with their mindful messages and some now with their holistic tools that support well-being. 
Enjoy Wanda and Berry's magical adventures that also support mindfulness and emotional well-being. The books are generally  enjoyed by children up to the age of approximately 8 years old and the aim is to encourage reflection and discussion about different emotional topics and are short stories written in rhyme.

Podcast

Listen to the ramblings of Laura, the creator of The Berry and Wanda Programme and mother. 
You may just find that you can relate more than you were expecting, find some peace, and be able to release some of that pesky parent guilt, after hearing that we all struggle at times, make mistakes and can mostly feel like we don't know what we are doing - even those of us who impart helpful wisdom to others! There's no such thing as a perfect parent and that is not only normal, but perfect in it's own imperfect way!
