Mana Parents Centre is proud to be working with Dr Bronwyn Sweeney to present a seminar on baby sleep.
Bronwyn is a mum, childbirth educator, psychologist and sleep researcher with a keen interest in all things perinatal. Her doctoral research investigated sleep changes in late pregnancy and the relationship to maternal mood in a sample of over 1,100 Kiwi women. She also trialed a sleep education programme for first time mum’s. Bronwyn has been associated with Parents Centres since 1991. She is an honorary life member and was the founding President of Wellington South Parents Centre.
In this seminar we will cover a bit of the science behind sleep for both adults and the newborn – just a smidge, not so much as to put you to sleep. We will discuss “normal” infant sleep development in the first year and things that can help or hinder that process. We will also talk about some strategies for your own sleep.
The session will be in two parts:
● A presentation by Bronwyn of approx 45-60 mins
● An open floor question and answer session
Payment required for this event by: 11th November 2019
