Great facts and resources. I learned valuable information and I cannot wait to communicate it with my clients and use this new information to help infants, children and their families!
Christy Christensen, LMT
I think this class is excellent. I believe every Mother should read this. Babies thrive on being close to someone and I feel that sometimes as health care practitioners it is our job to help Parents be more comfortable at giving love to their babies. It a lot of times has to be a learned skill. Thank you for this information.
