Your Brilliant Baby
Bonding with your baby doesn’t begin at birth or after the first few weeks, it begins during pregnancy, when you begin to think of your ‘bump’ as a person, and continues to grow and change throughout life.
The relationship you have with your baby is the most important one he’ll ever have, it will be his template for every other relationship, and will impact upon his health, his happiness and his success.
In order to create the optimum conditions for the development of this vital relationship, as a parent, you will need information, skills and knowledge that just aren't offered in traditional parent education classes.
That's why I developed 'Your Brilliant Baby' a programme of 5 x 2.5 hour sessions or 2 full day workshops which is specifically for parents expecting a baby or those with babies up to about 4 months of age, who want the opportunity to think more deeply about the issues raised by the enormous life transition becoming a parent brings about.
Babies are of course very welcome and provide a great opportunity for parents to learn from each other.
