Summary Notes
  • Comprehensive, evidence-based guide for mothers to foster secure attachments with their children from birth to 18 months, and beyond.
  • Simplifies the complex journey of motherhood by focusing on nurturing bonds, setting clear roles and goals, and promoting emotional, social, and mental well-being.

  Hello, welcome to Secure From the Start. If you are pregnant and awaiting your baby's arrival, or your baby or babies have already arrived. I'm gonna walk you through the process of developing a secure attachment pattern with your child from the very beginning. I'm super passionate about this for several reasons.

The first in that we have solid evidence around what babies need for their emotional, social, mental health care from zero to about 18 months. That we can give you information on so that you can be empowered to do what it is they need, which means less work later on for you. The other reason I'm passionate about it is that I have worked with folks for so long who did not have this experience, and a lot of us, including myself, had to put in our own healing process in order to deeply internalize the feeling of being worthy, of our needs, mattering of our voice mattering.

And I'm just hoping that for you and these littles that you have been entrusted with, that you will be able to give them that from the get-go. That they won't be having to do that healing later on because they had from you. This Guide is not meant to act as a medical source. So I am not going to tell you exactly what you need to do when your baby has a fever.

I am going to tell you how you can relate to and connect to your child and bond with them. Great news about infant care is while it is tedious and pretty constant, there's actually some simplicity to it, so I'm gonna help you really focus in on what your role is, what your goals are, and how to return to those time at a time again.

While they're in this young developmental stage. Then as your babies grow, I have guides for all of the other stages, so you can look at the Toddler guide. You can go through and figure out, what do I do on my kids at doing this thing or that thing? The teen guide, the adult guide, all of it, and I'm just so thrilled that you're going to do it with the information upfront instead of having to go, something's wrong in my relationship, how do I change it?

Not saying your relationship went perfect or there won't be things that you have to work on. But that if we can nail this part, this being available, attuned, connective, responsive, and soothing to our children, it makes everything else a lot easier. My cabbage patch doll, and I want to say congratulations.

We're so glad you're here. I'm gonna have you head on over and you can do these guides in any order that you're interested in them. Just select each topic and watch each guide and hope that it really helps you in your journey of feeling confident. That you know what it is that you need to do.
