GroBrain has been working with Camden Borough's Preparation for Parenthood Service to create an exciting new 5-session antenatal course for vulnerable parents, as a key element of their First 1001 Days Programme.
The course covers pregnancy and birth, as well as the emotional side of parenthood, bonding and brain development and the realities of life with a newborn. Parents also learn how to ‘tune in’ to their baby’s cues and practise ways to soothe a crying baby.
Midwives, health visitors and family support workers received two days’ intensive training, and start delivering the pilot course In October. We will then be looking to roll it out.
If this sounds of interest or could be useful to your organisation, please get in touch via our website www.grobrain/contact and we will be happy to tell you more.
