Whether you attend as an expectant parent or a parent with your baby, you will come to understand how different babies have different temperaments and how to respond to your baby’s unique personality.
You will discover the incredible capacities that even newborn babies have for communication; and observe how responding sensitively to these cues helps infants to regulate their nervous systems, make sense of their emotions, and manage stress.
