Feel Calm, Connected & Confident In The Early Stages Of Parenting

About CalmParent Canberra

Growing Alongside Your Baby

CalmParent is unlike other programs in that it focuses on you, the parent, rather than the child. Having a new baby is a very intense time and quite often comes with a shock of the incredible learning and adaptation that happens when we start to manage our baby’s needs.

We provide many opportunities to grow into this space, starting with our introductory program CalmParent. It is a 10-week program held once a week. It starts with the development of key understandings essential for developing an overall ‘calm or centredness,’ when working out your baby. It guides you from the romanticism, into the reality, by embracing the hardness and joys as part of learning to thrive in this space. It also consists of learning various techniques and strategies to practice whilst this learning and adapting is happening.

Each week explores a different theme, facilitated group discussion and completes with a weekly relaxation exercise that you can take home and practice.

You will receive a weekly email with a re-cap of the class and more information and resources. This is a great course for any new parent.
