TOUCH and MOVEMENT are two key elements for a baby to survive and thrive. At birth, your baby is totally dependent on you, as parent/carer, to provide everything they need. With so many gadgets, devices, containers for sale, and apps, books and marketing material telling you what you need it can be hard to make the best, most informed decision. For optimal growth and physical development of your baby their needs are simple – positive nurturing experiences and a safe environment. In the early days this comes in the form of YOU and the FLOOR!

DEVELOPMENTAL MOVEMENT

Holding your baby in your arms, as I did all those years ago, you know that they will eventually find their feet and walk, run and jump. Yet, it is something that we should not leave to chance, nor believe that they will achieve the different milestones in ‘their own time’.

Developmental Movement

Be proactive and confident understanding your baby’s early physical development with 1:1 consultations. Adapted for the age and/or stage of your baby, supported with resources and activities to explore:

  • Primitive reflexes

  • Transitional movements

  • Milestones

  • Touch

The journey from womb to walking lay the foundations for a healthy life.
