Hi All, I'm new to mumsnet, hope this is the right place to post. I live in South London and I am looking for someone who is about to give birth (or may have given birth in the last few weeks), and who would be interested in volunteering for a one-year baby observation. Basically I am training to be a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and need to observe a baby weekly for an hour in its first year of life, as part of my training. It may sound like a big ask but can be an interesting experience for parents too, and you'd be doing something very helpful in the training of a future psychotherapist! This is not a research study or any kind of assessment, just observation. I would come to your home at a time that suits you, and there is flexibility around holidays and emergencies etc, whatever it takes to make it easy for the everyone at home. If you want to find out more, please send me a message. I can answer your questions and provide letters from my training organisation. Thanks for considering! If you have a friend who might be interested I'd appreciate being signposted too!
