Developing Children, Developing Parents Audio Resources
The Developing Children, Developing Parents is a series of audio recordings that provides basic information about having a baby, becoming a parent, and caring for your young child.
We know you’re busy, so we’ve kept most episodes brief, usually between five and twelve minutes long. You can listen to them while you’re making dinner, having a relaxing cup of tea, or while your baby is napping. You can also listen to all of them or just the ones that interest you at any point.
Topics covered include what to expect during your pregnancy and how to keep you and your baby healthy. There are also a number of chapters all about how your new baby will grow and change over the first eighteen months. Finally, we also talk about how parenting will affect you and your partner and how to handle the changes that will naturally happen your relationship.
