2 day baby bonding - MANCHESTER

  • This flexible programme is based on the latest attachment research which shows that supporting the earliest parent-infant attachment relationship sets the scene for the best outcomes for children right into adulthood. Pregnancy and the early months after birth represent a “window of opportunity” to share new knowledge with parents.

    baby bonding aims to provide:
    • Lovely local sessions designed to get parents and their babies off to the best start possible together
    • Enjoyable interactive activities and resources to help build a strong relationship both before and after birth
    • An opportunity to explore all aspects of baby development including the amazing baby brain, how babies communicate, how we can help to calm and soothe babies in our fast-moving world, and other important developmental information
    • Empower and encourage parents as the experts in their baby’s care and how they play the most important part of all
    • Share evidence-based tools and techniques with parents to help them manage the transition to parenthood and the challenges it brings
    • Opportunities to develop a supportive network with other parents that may continue after the programme ends
