One of the most interesting things that can happen when you are over 50 is the arrival of Grandchildren. For many of us it is a new and different experience as we revisit all of the things we learned as young mothers.
Dympna Kennedy works with new mothers, and fathers in the first 12 months of the babies’ life. In particular women who have had a high flying corporate career or executive position where everything has always turned out just right. As we all know a new baby is not at all like that and it can be a pretty hair raising journey as you learn all about your new little person.
Dympna also works with the extended family and that more often than not involves Grandparents which is why she is talking with us all about how to be a great Grandmother. Dympna takes us through some of the science of new babies and their brain development to explain why they behave as they do. She also talks about how to help and how to be a part of making sure a new baby feels safe and loved.
