What our Babies! sessions offer...
We’ll spend time on the floor with babies, simply being with, attending to, and supporting their basic movements and needs. Whether baby is sleeping, crying, laying there, playing, rolling,crawling, or on their way to walking, we’ll provide the basic attentive environment for their learning! Please dress your baby in a way that allows for ease of movement and so that their feetand forearms are exposed.
Babies! sessions offer opportunities to observe how much is already happening with a baby. Space to ask questions about a baby’s process, and how to support them. A chance to be supported in making choices that value the many different ways that development can unfold, and that value the relationships between caregivers and infants. These sessions are open to babies from birth to walking, and multiple caregivers are welcome. We encourage parents and caregivers to get down on the floor with the babies, so it would be great if you wear clothes comfortable for moving around.
Classes are led by Theresa Murphy, IDME (Infant Developmental Movement Educator). She will answer questions about what your baby is up to, plus other developmental/behavioral questions you may have. She will offer insight into the most supportive ways to handle and hold baby!
Theresa will also offer insight, information and model hands on skills to support baby’s natural developmental process, and not ask too much of a baby. This work is in the interest of supporting the baby’s tandem developement of their movement skills and their nervous system making for anintegrated, well self-regulated, competent adult (eventually)!
Come & build community, baby!
