Nurturing Newborn Attachment
Taking care of a newborn can be both wonderful and scary. When you have a strong bond with your baby, it is easier to read their cues and know what they need.
That deep bond between a baby and their primary caregiver is called attachment. Attachment develops over time when you respond to your newborn in warm, consistent ways. When your child is attached to you, they feel safe with you and their surroundings.
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 compassionate.
Who can attend?
