Something that is incredibly important when interacting with your little one during those early days is to practice secure attachment parenting, do all you can towards building trust and closen your bond with them. I teach parents how to closen their connection regularly via baby massage. In this episode I’m talking about secure attachment parenting, building trust and why building a secure attachment bond is so important.
In episode 97 of First Time Mum’s Chat, Adjusting to the Challenges of Parenting After Birth, I interviewed the wonderful Dr Diane Speier, an author, birth and postpartum professional with over 40 years experience and I thought who better to discuss this topic with!
You’ll hear Diane share the history of secure attachment parenting and we discuss building trust and how to improve the connection with your little one and ways to give them a healthy sense of self and build a loving, empathetic relationship.
And much more!
