Welcome to Baby Science and the Craft of Parenting. Here you will find information, online parent services, clinic services and workshops to help you be the best you can be. This website is dedicated to supporting parents and professionals and promoting the wellbeing of pregnant women, babies, children and families.
I am Ali Knights, Clinical Psychologist and Parent-Infant Consultant, and I specialise in working with mums-to-be, parents and infants, children and families, and early years professionals.
Connecting Science and Parenting
By connecting current scientific knowledge and its practical applications to parenting, I provide you with an individual solution for your worry and help you parent in a more intuitive way.
My Baby Science Workshops are designed to be fun and informative and will make you say ‘Wow! I never knew that!’
What Sets Me Apart
What sets me apart is my extensive training and experience in perinatal and child psychology and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Not only working with mums who are pregnant and experiencing pre and postnatal anxiety and depression, I am also a developmental and child psychologist with extensive experience and training in newborn babies and working with families.
My approach therefore keeps you and your baby in mind. I identify and address issues from the perspective of you and your baby so you get an individual solution tailored to suit you and your baby’s unique strengths and needs.
