Place Category: First Touch Program for Parents
Becoming a new parent is the most exciting, exhausting and at times overwhelming role you will ever take on. Having access to lots of information, keeps you informed, realising there is so much conflicting information, leads to overwhelm.
All our classes are designed to take a step-back, simplify and silence the noise on the outside so that you and your baby can connect, engage and get to know each other instinctually. We found that one of the best ways to support you as a mum was to empower dads by giving them the right training and information so that they can support you too.
We offer ‘The First Touch Program’ for mums in addition to specialised tailored classes for Dads so that they too become the ‘expert’ in caring for your baby. Demand for our ‘First Touch Classes’ for grandparents continue to grow as grandparents continue to take on a greater role in the care of their newest grandchildren.
All classes are facilitated by Dympna Kennedy, a CIMI, who is one of Australia’s most qualified and respected parenting coaches. She’s also the founder of Creating Balance a business that draws on her extensive real-world experience along with the latest academic research to help parents connect better with their children.
She has delivered Keynote Presentations and Workshops for Resourcing Parents (Families NSW), The Early Childhood Association, The Australian National Nanny Conference and has spoken at the National Conference of The Australian Infant Mental Health Association. She has been interviewed on radio, guest appearances on podcasts, has been interviewed for SMH, Daily Telegraph, Essential Baby and has had her articles published in health and educational journals.
Dympna is a member of numerous early childhood and health care organisations, a registered Australian Sports Commission Community Coach, a registered Circle of Security Parent Educator having trained under Dr Kent Hoffman and a registered Circle of Courage Educator having trained with Dr Larry Brendtro. She is an early childhood teacher and received the Family and Children’s Services ‘Award for Excellence’ for her research and work with young children.
