This 2-day short course imparts understanding of the birthlight water parenting approach to introducing young babies to water and laying down positive foundations that lead onto and prepare for baby swimming classes. For babies aged under 4 months.

Course Prerequisites

The course is open to:

- All qualified Birthlight baby swimming teachers, STA baby & pre-school teachers and certified holders of parent-baby swimming teaching qualifications
- Applicants without swimming qualifications who have experience with babies: nursery nurses, midwives, health visitors, postnatal doulas and psychotherapists working with birth trauma.

The course is held in baths and shallow warm pools but applicants should be confident in water, even if they are tentative swimmers. A CPR qualification (Baby resuscitation) is highly recommended but not mandatory. Life Saving skills are also recommended for those planning to work in pools without a lifeguard on poolside.
