To find out more contact

You will spend quality time with your baby and with other parents.

We will sing, do some gentle massage, and observe when your baby wants to be stimulated and when she wants calming.

We support you to enjoy your baby and wonder what s/he may be trying to communicate.

With your permission we will take photos which we will give you to keep as a memory.

You will learn about principles of attunement to help you re-create these special times outside the group sessions.

As a result of attending the Baby Bonding groups you will become more confident and relaxed as a parent. Your baby will learn that s/he can have an impact, to develop a sense of self-efficacy and strengthens his or her relationship with you.

This is a baby-led approach which helps parents to become more mindful and present in the moment.
