Did you know that baby’s have needs before they are born and that Responsgive Parenting starts in pregnancy?
You can help your baby’s brain develop to in pregnancy by taking time out to relax and bond with them. This can be as simple as responding to your baby’s kicks with a gentle nudge of your own.
Talking, reading and/ or singing to your growing baby and stroking your bump are also wonderful ways to increase yours and your baby’s oxytocin and promote bonding and brain development.
You can invite your partner, children and other close family and friends to start to develop a relationship with your baby in the same way.
Learning your baby’s normal pattern of movements and responding to any changes helps to keep your baby safe.
Ask your midwife about Bump Bonding, Responsive Parenting and monitoring your baby’s movements in pregnancy.
