Connecting Science and Parenting
Preparing for Baby - an antenatal course with a difference.
Most antenatal approaches focus on the practical and educational - all very important, however, they do not often address the emotional impact of having a baby. The focus of this antenatal course with a difference, is on emotional and relationship development.
You can take one or both in any order.
Your Connected Baby
Teaches you about how your baby is socially connected and ready to communicate from birth.
Your Baby’s Brain Development
Teaches you about the development of your baby’s brain from womb to age two years old and what you can do to support your baby’s emotional development.

What professionals tell me
When I have done teaching about this to a range of health professionals, time and again they say:
’If only somebody had told or shown me this when I had my children!’
‘Now I understand what was happening when my baby was screaming’.
‘I wouldn’t have felt so bad and feeling I didn’t know what to do for the best’.
Connecting Science and Practice
Baby Brain Development
Understanding the implications of brain development on babies, children & young people is important as it helps to support and to respond to families in a helpful way. Gives you a language to say what you are seeing and to talk to parents & intervene positively and influences the outcome for the baby or child. This workshop provides you with up to date scientific knowledge and how to apply it in your work with families.
Working Collaboratively with Families using a Strengths-Based Approach
Two Half-Day Workshops a fortnight apart. Training includes an introduction to Strengths-Based Approach in working with families, and links the approach to practice. The two half-day training days are separated by a fortnight to facilitate professionals to use the model in their practice and feedback their experiences on Day 2.
Baby Communication Cues
The first 3 months of life is a period of rapid developmental transition for the newborn as the infant engages with the world around. Babies are social from the moment of birth. Understanding their communication cues supports a secure attachment. This workshop gives you the up to date scientific knowledge about infant communication and how it can help you in your work with families of newborns.
