Taking care of a newborn can be both wonderful and scary. Building a strong bond with your baby will make it easier to read your baby’s cues.
Attachment is the deep bond between a baby and their primary caregiver. Attachment develops over time when you respond to your newborn in warm, consistent ways.
This class will teach you the basics of attachment so that you can deepen your relationship with your baby. A strong attachment with your child helps them to become secure, confident, independent, and empathetic.
