It’s very important that you begin interacting with your baby in a positive, engaging way from when they are newborns to ensure they develop and can achieve their full potential in life.
This is important to implement from day one and throughout their early years whilst their brains are still developing. In this episode I discuss ways you can achieve this with Michelle Mintz, a Personal Baby Bloomer who telecoaches unique pro-active strategies for parents to integrate throughout their day which enhance brain connections and enrich early attachments which helps their baby bloom.

About Michelle Mintz
Michelle Mintz has been a licensed Speech-Language Therapist for over 25 years and earned her B.A. in Speech and Hearing Sciences from U.C. Santa Barbara and in 1995, received her M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology from Boston University.
In addition to her private practice entitled, tot2talk, in Santa Monica, California, Michelle works with families in private homes, with children at the Therapeutic Preschool established by Providence St. John’s Health Center, online through teletherapy services, with the Regional Center which is a state funded therapy program for children birth through three years old and has worked closely with very young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Michelle’s therapy experiences inspired her to create her company, BABY BLOOMING MOMENTS™. The strategies she designed are for ALL babies and toddlers and their families, not just for those who have developmental concerns. During these interactive telecoaching sessions, Michelle coaches those who raise babies and toddlers to apply her pro-active strategies while they are already dressing, feeding, bathing, riding in the car, grocery shopping…so their child can bloom to their brightest potential. These strategies help increase eye contact, joint attention, vocabulary and they will experience a deep bonding with their baby at a more meaningful and stimulating level than they are already experiencing.
