Help! I'm looking for a pregnant mum, EDD September, whom I can observe with the baby

Hello kind reader...

I am starting my training as a psychoanalyst with the British Association of Psychotherapists in September and in my first year I am doing an infant observation course. I need to find a mum in central/ west London who is having her baby in early September and would be willing to let me come to her home for one hour every week from around the end of September until next July. I then just observe the baby and her (or whoever is there looking after the baby that hour) to see the baby's development. I do not get involved, I am not judgemental. I just observe.

Every psychotherapist and analyst does this course and I have heard lots of heartwarming stories about the babies and mothers others have observed. It seems to be a positive experience for all concerned. I have accreditation from the BAP and a CRB check (and another is currently being obtained as well). I have 3 children myself, now of uni age.

If you are interested, or would like to know more, please do contact me through mumsnet and we can arrange to talk in the real world...

Thanks for reading,
