Foundation Course January 2013, Hebden Bridge

It’s been the first course of the year and I remember being concerned with the weather forecast (see the ‘before’ picture of some snow in Hebden). With the participants travelling from as far as Belgium (and also from less far afield, e.g. Birmingham or Manchester), we kept our fingers crossed for the weather letting everyone to get here easily and get back smoothly! So, remembering that the heavy snow and ice did not appear until after the course (see below 🙂 ), I’m feeling totally appreciative.

It has also been the first course that I can remember that took place with so much snow outside, not that it affected us during the course hours. We were warm and cozy in Hebden Therapy Centre. It seemed that the babies liked the surroundings well enough too :).

We have striven for a balance between answering urgent and relevant questions, and to cover the curriculum. It was such a pleasure to see everyone building their competence and moving from strength to strength in their teaching skills. I believe the latter are so essential to share the skill of a safe and comfortable babywearing in an easy and clear way that can be easily repeated by a parent at home, after the consultation.

So please do welcome our new Babywearing Consultants – Lotte Braem, Amy Truman, Alison McNeil, Andy McNeil. I’m hoping to see you again and am wishing you much luck and success in your crucial work of supporting the parents :)!

And if you missed this course, stay tuned (e.g. via checking ‘Find a course’ page or by subscribing to our Facebook page) for the news on upcoming courses in Hebden (or, we have spaces on May course in Islington, London if you can’t wait until September 🙂 !).
