Welcome to the World

Antenatal

This 2 or 4-day training course will provide practitioners with the skills, knowledge and resources needed to deliver the 8-week Welcome to the World programme for parents.

The experiential training focuses on the emotional health of the parents and baby, and the relationships between them; and emphasises the importance of supportive, positive facilitation from the practitioner.

It will also enhance all their interactions with parents in the transition to parenthood.

  • support parents in building positive relationships with their baby and each other

  • explain to parents the importance of empathy and attunement

  • support parents in reducing their own and their baby’s stress

  • support parents to make positive choices for themselves, including on nutrition, exercise and infant feeding

  • demonstrate an understanding of the rationale behind the strategies

  • facilitate the Welcome To The World programme to groups of parents-to-be

  • use evaluation measures to demonstrate impact
