Baby ROCKS is our parent craft class which will guide parents gently along the path to parenthood. The sessions provide parents with knowledge and aims to improve the wellbeing and confidence of both parents following the birth of their gorgeous new baby. Baby ROCKS was created by Nicola Bradley a registered midwife and nurse who is also a mum of three. Through her experience of working with parents-to-be and guiding them on their journey to their baby’s birth it became apparent that once they had “the whole birth thing sorted” they were seeking information about providing the basic care needs for their newborn and what to expect in the postnatal period. And so Baby ROCKS was born!
The training covers four main aspects:
Module 1 – Initial care following birth
Module 2 – Growing baby 0 – 6 weeks
Module 3 – Hands on baby care
Module 4 – Postnatal care of mum and family life.
Each area has an in depth look at what parents can expect and what they can do to ease the transition to parenthood. You will be provided all the up-to-date and relevant information from Birth Rocks Academy that will enable you to confidently facilitate a Baby ROCKS course. All modules will be sent to you as an on-line format, in addition for module 3 you will be provided with a video link demonstrating the “hands on baby care”.
You will be expected to complete the Baby ROCKS Mentor exam on-line and answer the set questions correctly to allow the BRA faculty see that you, as the Baby ROCKS mentor, have a full understanding of course content. The pass mark is 80%. You will also be asked to provide two written assignments including detailing what a baby needs to develop and grow and a reflective essay and case study on your first Baby ROCKS course.
