We are excited to bring you a two part series. Tonight, the story of a mother who has done it. Tomorrow, we’ll look at how to do a Lotus Birth yourself. (NB, there appears to be minimal research on the benefits/negatives of Lotus Birth, but I certainly couldn’t find any evidence for why it’s not a valid option. The most important thing is to have delayed cord clamping, and then Lotus Birth may interest many of you on top of that).
Build a Great Family Team
Great kids need great parents and with the right tools anyone can be a great parent! Whether you are a grandparent, parenting with a partner, a sole parent, a blended or foster family Toolbox has something to offer. If you are looking for practical strategies, inspiration, encouragement and insight then a Toolbox parenting group is for you.
In an informal, relaxed and friendly environment participants are equipped with practical skills and strategies that can be immediately put to use. Over six sessions key parenting principles are explored and participants are encouraged in their parenting.
-The Parenting Place
Parent team Dan & Rosemary Joyce facilitate Toolbox Parenting Groups: Early Years (0-6) and Middle Years (6-12) at THE BIRTHING ROOM. The cost of the course is $75 per person or $110 per couple or if you come with a friend (incl. GST). Subsidies are available upon request for those who can’t afford these fees. Thanks to recent government funding we are able to provide Toolbox free of charge to all grandparents raising grandchildren, foster carers, whanau caregivers, home for life parents and adopters. Participants who attend an Early or Middle Years course receive a free subscription to Parenting magazine.
