Calming Baby Videos
Calming Baby Prenatal Class is developed to help you to learn to respond to your newborn baby quickly and confidently by listening to baby’s cries (pre-cries), watch your baby’s cue and activate baby’s calming reflexes. We learn from the expert who has photographic memory to sound following Priscilla Dunstan’s teaching. Some of us are auditory. Others are visual or kinesthetic learners. In this page, I put together a few videos to help you recognise what your baby basic needs and wants. You will also learn to handle your baby in a safe and gentle way. Helping you to prevent injuries and most importantly enjoy your parenthood.
Calm Parents, Calm Baby!

Safe Swaddling and Diaper Changing Techniques
Improper swaddling may lead to hip dysplasia. When in the womb the baby’s legs are in a fetal position with the legs bent up and across each other. Sudden straightening of the legs to a standing position can loosen the joints and damage the soft cartilage of the socket. Dr. Price, from the International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI), explains why special attention should be paid to how your baby is swaddled to prevent hip dysplasia, and multiple hip-healthy swaddling methods are demonstrated.
