This course gives parents information about their baby’s brain development and their baby’s physical and emotional development. It shows how important their relationship with their baby is for the baby’s development.
It integrates the traditional information given on a postnatal course with this new approach to developing your relationship with the baby. It looks at the baby’s sleeping, feeding, crying, playing and childcare options.
The course was developed by Health Visitors working with health professionals in the Solihull Approach team.
If a parent cannot access a postnatal group, this course is a good alternative
If one parent is in a postnatal group and their partner can’t attend, this course is a good alternative for your partner and others around the baby
It means that everyone around the baby can do this course, including grandparents
There are 11 modules
There are interactive activities, quizzes and video clips
