A 5-session parent-infant group in Turramurra & Beecroft, Sydney
Did you know that babies enter the world primed for communication, ready to connect and communicate with their caregivers?
Let’s Talk Psychology Practice is excited to provide parents with the opportunity to learn about the ways in which babies use body language, sounds, and other signals to communicate their needs using Together with Baby Program.
Together with Baby is a 5-week program for parents and their infants.
Imagine having the opportunity to pause…
to step out of the busy ‘doing’ that is so easy to get caught up in… to sink into ‘being’ present with your baby… allowing yourself the space to get to know your baby as the little person that they are… and to grow into your own skin as a parent!
Gift yourself with this opportunity by enrolling in a Together with Baby Program at Let’s Talk Psychology Practice.
Why should I attend Together with Baby?
Healthy touch, stroking, and skin to skin contact has been shown to support a baby’s emotional, social, and early brain development.
Using a unique combination of massage strokes Together with Baby supports parents in
how to use touch, massage, voice and movement to deepen their bond with their baby whilst promoting positive infant psychological wellbeing.
More specifically, Together with Baby has the potential to:
• reduce infant crying
• help improve settling and soothing
• support a baby’s development and wellbeing
• help protect and promote a baby’s mental health if their mother is recovering from postnatal depression, and
• help babies bond with their dads which in turn supports a babies social and physical development.
The Together with Baby Program teaches parents how to watch out for and interpret their baby’s communication cues and how to respond with appropriate caregiving behaviours.
