A complete handout for Antenatal & Postnatal Education:

Giving a mother a copy of Rebecca’s pamphlet will help her remember and repeat the successful behaviours you have demonstrated during the education session.

Antenatal Sessions

The ideal time to provide mothers with vicarious learning opportunities. Show video footage of babies seeking, finding and attaching by feel. If you do not have a video, use a soft bodied doll to demonstrate what babies can do, describe what stimulates each behaviour and the action baby is likely to take in response to the stimulus. “Mothers are built to follow their baby’s lead; knowing what their baby can do is the first step toward their knowing how to help.” Glover, R. &

Wiessinger, D. (2012)

Postnatal Sessions

Use Participatory Modelling to help postpartum mothers. With a doll and Rebecca's education materials demonstrate the innate attaching behaviours and the practical steps of the process as described in the pamphlet and DVD Follow Me Mum. When you give the mother the pamphlet, use a highlighter pen to emphasize text that is relevant to her situation.
