Practitioners and commissioners

We have a Solihull Approach antenatal online course ‘Understanding pregnancy, labour, birth and your baby’, an online postnatal course ‘Understanding your baby’ and a course for parents of children aged 6 months to 19 years ‘Understanding your child’. The online course for parents ‘Understanding your child’ was the first to be awarded the CANparent Quality Mark by the Government. It is available in several languages.

We have converted the material in our face to face groups into online courses. This has several advantages:

  • when a mother or father is attending a group but their partner is unable to attend, their partner can access the same material online
  • it increases accessibility for parents in remote areas
  • it increases accessibility for men, who traditionally tend not to attend groups
  • it provides an alternative for parents who do not want to attend a group
  • it increases accessibility for grandparents or other carers who may not get a place on a group
  • it has the potential to be used imaginitively to increase population access to evidence based material that has been shown to impact positively on the parent/child relationship with all the advantages that that will bring across the lifespan
  • it can be used as part of an early intervention or prevention strategy
  • ‘Understanding your child’ course for parents also available in Urdu

The course for parents costs £39. The antenatal course costs £19. The postnatal course costs £21. To view a summary of the course content click here.
