Birthlight Water Parenting Video
Over 20 years after the release of birthlight’s first ‘Baby Swimming’ DVD this second release includes the most effective birthlight methods and techniques for babies, toddlers and their families to enjoy water together. This film is the result of 8 full days of classes and sessions with families at the Birthlight and Bright Family Centre in Moscow under the guidance of Françoise Freedman and birthlight tutor Amanda Gawthrope and Moscow based birthlight swimming teacher Tatiana Mordvinova.
Water Parenting is the art of enjoying shared time in water with babies from birth to three years old. Using skillful but easy holds and dynamic moves, babies learn to swim in the best possible way; through a close and loving interaction with their parents. Whether you start with a newborn or with a toddler, adaptations and variations offer resources that all parents can use, even if they are not confident swimmers.
The Birthlight approach aims for the best baby swimming outcomes in the gentlest way. As the most trusted and loving main carers, parents are ideally qualified to accompany their little ones’ development in water. Babies clearly show us what they enjoy, what they tolerate and what they dislike at any point in time. These films show parents how to read and respond to baby and toddler cues in water, in gentle, safe and effective ways.
