Did you know that when babies are kept frequently in car seats or other equipment that prop them up before they put themselves in a sitting or standing position, it could effect their neurological development?
When children are allowed to sit up and walk when they are ready, specific reflexes and brain connections develop, setting them up for good health.
Yvette Halpin presents:
How Babies Move and What Babies Sense From Belly, Through Birth, To Three Years of Age, is foundational for the child’s later ability to live and learn
Thursday February 23 from 10:30am to 12:30pm
at Birth and Wellness Centre on 2060 Walkley Road (corner of St Laurent)
In this experiential workshop with Yvette Halpin you will learn how cognitive brain functions- like the capacity to read, write, pay attention, self-regulate, be empathetic, follow instructions, etc, use the same brain neural connections as the sensory and motor neural circuits that have been established since infancy.
Yvette will introduce to you and guide you through these innate, genetically encoded, movements of womb and infancy - primitive reflexes, rhythmic movements and developmental movements - that are responsible to help baby be born, grow and learn. She will offer many practical ways in which to support this development.
Fee: $45 including a comprehensive manual of a compilation of practical information
What to bring: your baby, a yoga mat, a blanket for the baby and your partner if they want to join.

What particiapants have said:
“Thank you for the fascinating workshop! I especially enjoyed testing the reflexes on each other. I wish I had known all this for my first child.”
"It was extremely interesting (not mention fun) to join other moms and babies that attended the workshop. Learning about each baby reflex and their importance to brain development was very informative and helpful. I can now recognize each reflex and facilitate their integration through change of behavior, specially in a world dominated by baby gadgets. You do inspiring work. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge."
