Your guide to adapting to early parenthood, creating a secure attachment with your new baby, and cutting through the information overload in the first 12 months
This program is all about giving parents everything they need to assist their older children though the big transition that is welcoming a new baby into your home
Group Parent Education
Gen regularly runs Circle of Security Parenting groups, Tuning Into Kids Groups as well as targeted small workshops on common parenting problems
In a one-on-one zoom session parents are able to get information that is tailored to them. We know how individual each family is, and a one-on-one can be designed to meet your individual needs.
Included is a pre-session phone call, and practical strategies you can implement right away.
One-on-One Session + Connected Baby
When having your first baby the information overload is huge. By combining the connected baby program with a one-on-one session to follow, parents are able to get access to all the extra tips and tricks that can make the adjustment into parenthood smoother.
One-on-One Session + Connected Families
Often when they get into the 'thick' of parenting two or three kids parents are seeking more detailed information and advice about how to manage meltdowns, big feelings, boundaries and the parenting juggle. A combination of the connected families program with a one-on-one with Gen is a brilliant way to have a complete parenting reset.
There's a LOT out there when it comes to parenting advice and education and, quite frankly, it can be extremely overwhelming.
Genevieve is passionate about reducing information overload and condensing the key, actionable strategies to connection.

Thank you for all your kindness during my time at the mater. I remember crying after listening to you talk, because your words really were so touching and empathetic. Going through the hash lockdown of COVID and returning home to a toddler with a newborn, your really helped guide me at a time that I was feeling lost and weak.Thank you for all that you did and continue to do for all the mothers during such a difficult year. I remember staying back on the day of my discharge just to hear your class and I’m so glad I did. I use your techniques with my toddler when she’s having a bad day and she really does respond better. I’m happy for you to share this because it really is the truth. :) Thank you again for helping me see the positives during such a negative time of lockdown x
Hi Gen, I’ve just completed your online course Connected Families. Oh my goodness I wish I had found you before now!!!! Thank you so much for giving me the tools to tap into exactly what my son Ollie needed as he adjusted to his baby sister. With your advice, we were able to prepare in advance for the an introduction that was lead by Ollie (not us) we knew how to meet his needs and then when he was showing signs of pushing boundaries we knew why and what to do!! I’m not saying every day has gone smoothly, but the difference is in our confidence, particularly knowing he needed us to be confident with boundaries and welcome any big feelings (There have been a few of these too). Thanks again Gen.
Hi Gen, I just wanted to say how helpful your Connected Families course it has been, we had our second baby this year and we have been following your advice around how we manage our toddlers feelings/emotions and wow, it has helped so much!
We are getting down to his eye level and taking about how he is feeling, offering big cuddles and taking one-on-one time with him each week. I have no doubt that this has made the transition to a family of four much smoother for all of us. Thank you!
