Parents have said:
“It helped me break the cycle so what happened to me when I was a child won’t happen to my kids”
“I feel more confident in myself with my daughter, like I’m a good parent and before I wouldn’t have felt like that”
“It really helps babies when you tell them what they feel and tell them you know how they’re feeling. I would never have thought like that before.”
