Connections: how to grow a happy & confident child from birth is a wonderful workshop for parents, and parents-to-be, all about attachment, infant brain development and responsive parenting.

I have 

I have delivered Connections workshops online and in person for a number of years, and delivered similar to parents as part of a postnatal course I co-wrote when I managed a Sure Start children's centre. The course, Baby Days, was adopted by the local authority and I trained children's centre and council parenting team to deliver the course, which is still running now in Central Bedfordshire.


I will be adding more information to this page about the training and about the importance of early interactions and connections in infant brain development, attachment, and long term mental and physical health. 


To support you after the training, you will have a handbook with all the information in, and handouts for parents, including a booklet.

  • Fill a gap and help parents in your area

  • Useful income

  • Handbook & resources

  • Great training with experienced facilitator & ongoing support

  • Supports positive birth experiences, informed consent, and individualised care

  • Non-judgemental, developmental approach

  • Your own business, no franchise or ongoing payments

Is it for you?

  • Are you looking for an extra source of income that is well tested?

  • Do you have an interest in supporting parents, and helping them through this stage?

  • It is especially suitable for people who already run antenatal/postnatal classes. Or parents looking to start their own business.

It is a full day of training, in person or online. There is ongoing support to run your own sessions. You get a handbook, with helpful notes, and resources to run the workshop, or to hold discussions with people at your existing classes.  It is a useful source of income, whether you are a mum or dad at home, or birth professional such as a baby massage teacher, antenatal teacher, hypnobirthing teacher or similar.


I have been training facilitators to run my various workshops for several years now.
