Hello! My name is Roz and I'm studying psychotherapy at the Bowlby Centre, in Spitalfieds, and am looking for a baby (ideally due Jan-June 2013) to visit once a week for 18 months as part of my Infant Observation seminar.
There's no judging or assessing of parenting skills--the object is simply to watch the baby's week-by-week development. I'm a mum myself with two children aged 11 and 6, both of whom were observed. I found it very enjoyable to have a regular visitor who was almost as interested in my baby as I was.
I also run a local forum for parents/carers of disabled children, in case you're wondering why my mumsnet name is the same as one of the community listings.
Please do get in touch on 07985 739851 if you would like to know more about the infant observation. I can send you a letter of introduction from my college and a copy of my enhanced CRB certificate.
