The Reassurance Package - 0 to 12 weeks
The transition into parenthood is more that just the birth of a baby ... it is the birth of parents as well.  And the first few weeks of life lay the most important foundations for the attachment and bonding process between parents and their baby.

Whilst the first few days and weeks after bringing home your new baby can be the most joyful time of your life, it can also be the most overwhelming.

As parents begin the task of developing a loving and connected relationship with their new baby, and make adjustments to their new role, it can also be a time when huge psychological and emotional changes are occurring both for parents and baby.  New parents often feel the need to be nurtured and cared for, especially as they process their birthing experience, and their new role as a parents.

And as their new baby's intense needs create their own series of challenges, parents are often bombarded with a plethora of parenting information and conflicting parenting theories and advice - some of which can have a detrimental effect on a newborn's overall developmental and emotional well-being.

It is not surprising then that many new parents become confused about, or are offered unrealistic expectations about how they or their newborn might behave.  Trying to force their 'square' baby into the 'round' holes of advice offered by well-meaning family and friends about sleep, feeding, crying, bonding, etc, can leave new parents feeling overwhelmed, stressed and anxious ... all of which can transfer directly to their newborn!

One way to avoid this scenario, and be assured that you are launching into parenthood with stedfast confidence and research-based know-how, is to experience The Baby Calmer's Reassurance or Reassurance PLUS Package.

The Baby Calmer knows the value and importance of early parenting support, education, counselling and mentoring in assuring a secure attachment and bonding process between a newborn and its parents.

The Baby Calmer is also deeply passionate about and committed to delivering services that are safe, holistic, research-based, emotion-focused and therapeutically nurturing to parents and their newborns.  As such, the aim of The Baby Calmer's Reassurance and Reassurance PLUS Packages is to provide safe, nurturing support, research-based education, therapeutic counselling and emotion-focused mentoring to new parents during the first twelve weeks of their parenting journey.

During your two hour "Newborn Reassurance MINI In-Home, Phone or Skype Consultation", or your four hour "Newborn Reassurance In-Home MAXI Consultation" or your eight hour "Newborn Reassurance PLUS In-Home Consultation", you will be invited to ask The Baby Calmer anything you like about newborn sleep, feeding, crying, bonding, trusting your motherly instincts ... as well as how to support and strengthen your existing knowledge and newly developing parenting skills; anything you can think of really, in relation to your new parenting role.  You may even wish to debrief your birth experience, or talk over how you are feeling as you adjust to your new parenting role.  Whatever you and your baby need is what's important.  You and your baby set the agenda ... but if you need some ideas as to what is possible and how The Baby Calmer might be able to help, please feel free to ask!
