I am thrilled to announce that, starting tomorrow Thursday 12th April 2018, we will be opening our not-for-profit clinic for English speaking parents in Lima. I have the great fortune to team up with four other health professionals including a Paediatrician, a Doctor, a Paediatric Physiotherapist and a Paediatric Occupational Therapist. Initially the clinic will be open bi-weekly on Thursdays from 11am to 1.30pm.
If you have a baby under one year old, and would like to join us, you can find out more by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or looking at our FB group page Lima Babies.
Come and meet other parents and get your questions answered.
Exciting times ahead!
Last Wednesday I was really excited to be talking to this lovely group of early years educators at the Monterrico campus of Markham College, Lima.
Some great brainstorming and feedback too. Marvellous to be back doing the work I love.
We all recognised the serious need for early intervention. Anyone who knows me, will know how much importance I place on this!
Anyone who knows me or has followed me in the past will be well aware that I have a mantra that “Early Intervention is the key”. Every time I see a baby who has been born prematurely this belief is reconfirmed. I was happy to see the experts at NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) in the UK are agreeing and implementing this. I hope this article is of interest to any parent out there who has a child born prematurely. Please click on the picture to read this and feel free to contact me with comments or questions.
I am pleased to announce that ESF have asked me to repeat my talk on positioning and handling your baby and what you can do encourage motor milestones at home. This very popular talk is open to parents of babies and young children from 0 to 5 years old. It will be held in the evening of Thursday 22nd September 2016 at 6.30pm.

I am thrilled to announce that I will be offering two talks at Pause on Graham Street in Central in September. Both talks will be aimed at parents with new babies and will cover the subject of babies’ developmental milestones. I will be doing these talks on Thursday 1st September 2016 and again on Thursday 29th September 2016 at 11am.

Really looking forward to meeting you all!
Following my latest talk at Anfield Kindergarten, as part of the Watchdog Onsite Programme, I have also been asked to give talks to teachers and professionals on various dates. The next talk will be at Small World Christian Kindergarten on Tuesday August 23rd. This is designed for Small World’s professional staff.
Further talks at various Kindergartens in Hong Kong will follow later in the year and in 2017. These talks will be about the gross motor development of children in their early years.
I will be doing various presentations in three different venues in October. They are relevant for all parents of babies and children, and everybody is welcome.

Have you ever wondered when your baby will learn to sit , when they will learn to crawl, when to expect their first tooth and when they will first smile at you? These are important milestones in a baby’s first year of life
Come and find out about your baby’s development and when to expect these magical moments in a child’s life.
Helen is a Paediatric Physiotherapist, Developmental Specialist and one of the founders of Nest4Mums. She has been working with parents and babies for over 30 years.

There will be plenty of time for questions and there will be some handouts to help you understand further.
This talk will take place at 3pm on Tuesday 6th October 2015 at SmartCells, 20th floor, Car Po Commercial Building, Lyndhurst Terrace, Central. For further details contact Jill Marshall on 9708 0187 or Helen on 9075 5194. Come along with your babies. See you there!
This could be especially interesting for all you Pok Fu Lam parents, but obviously everyone is welcome. The talk will cover from newborn to three years old.
