Place Category: First Touch Program for Parents
I believe all new parents have an innate wisdom when it comes to meeting the physical and emotional needs of their new baby and when supported by their community, secure attachment can be nurtured. My passion is to support parents and help make a positive difference to their lives during the post-natal period.
The mission of Baby-In-Mind Australia, strongly reflects my ideals and values for working with families. Through the facilitation of the 5 Week First Touch Program new parents have the opportunity to be connected with other families, enhance the communication with their baby and receive sound information in an intimate, compassionate and empathic environment.
I have a Bachelor of Education (Primary) and enjoyed working in this field for 20 years. During the last 5 years I have studied Nutrition and completed my Diploma in Remedial Massage. My strong desire to work in early parent education and the quality outcomes of The First Touch Program inspired me to become a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) with Baby in Mind. I have been facilitating the First Touch program in the Newcastle region for the last three years in Adamstown, within family support organisations (Mums’ Cottage Holmesville, Fennell Bay SaCC and Windale SaCC) and offering a mobile service for parent groups.
There is immense self- fulfilment that comes from facilitating a program in which parents consistently express gratitude for allowing them time to feel nurtured, bond with their baby and connect with other parents in a supportive environment. Recently I have channelled my teaching skills and enthusiasm for the program into becoming a trainer with Baby in Mind Australia. In addition to facilitating the First Touch Program in Newcastle, I am delighted to be training other like-minded people to deliver this exceptional program.
