The course is led by Marion Badenoch Rose BSc PhD DipCouns DipPsych GSPP
Certified Aware Parenting Instructor.

I have 18 years of experience studying the needs of babies and love to support parents interested in Aware Parenting. I have a four-year-old daughter and a new baby on the way. Aware Parenting is a form of attachment parenting that includes up to date knowledge of the emotional needs of babies and children, and how they can heal from over-stimulation and stress as they grow. Babies parented this way become peaceful, aware, securely attached children who are a joy to be with.

The course is held in Mullumbimby, Northern NSW, and costs $150 for individuals and $180 for couples.

These are the best diapers. My newborn was almost 10 lbs. at birth and newborn diapers were too tiny and leaked every single time he wet his diaper. I moved to the next size up with an expensive brand and continued to have the same problem. My pediatrician recommended honest diapers so I tried them and am SO pleased.
