We send well wishes and a big congratulations to Becky Minihan, owner of Dolphin Academy Swim School, on the birth of her little girl.

Just wanted to let you know that I had my baby girl on Saturday morning (October 16 th )

She was born at home in the birth pool! 
…. I can’t wait to bring her to a baby swimming course to meet you. So excited to give her a bath at home soon using the aquatic nurture for newborns! x
We are very much in love with her!

The Birthlight Aquatic Nurture for Newborns course which Becky refers to is a course designed by Francoise Freedman. Francoise explains:

There is so much more to newborns’ first baths than hygiene: baths ease babies’ transition from their intra-uterine life to the outside world. The bath is calming, stimulating and multisensory all at once. The ways in which we handle newborns shapes the bath experience. With responsive handling, daily baths can be a positive introduction to movement in water. The shared pleasure of the bath (baby bath or shared home bath) enhances early weeks and months for parents and babies together. The Birthlight Aquatic Nurture short course (Livestream) responds to several of these needs.
