How Jennifer helps babies
Working with premature babies and brain-injured infants and toddlers,
Jennifer Kellow, RN, developed a highly effective way to help all infants learn:
- Easy Breathing
- Sound Sleep
- Calm Feeding
- Smooth Digestion
- Coordinated Movement
She combines her skill as an Alexander Technique teacher with her experience as a neonatal intensive care nurse and her training in preterm infant behavior to help babies integrate all the developing systems of their bodies. Jennifer works to re-establish the natural connection between parents and baby that a premature birth and subsequent hospitalization have disrupted.
For parents of full-term newborns, she smooths the baby’s adaptation to life outside the womb, and helps new parents recognize the highly developed communication that their baby is naturally expressing.
How It Works
In a session, Jennifer will:
- Evaluate your baby’s behavior and movement
- Use skilled touch to bring you and your baby to a state of calm
- Help your baby learn to regulate his body systems
- Teach you the cues your baby is giving to communicate his needs
Sessions last 90 minutes, in which Jennifer will gently interact with your baby on the floor, or holding your child, or with you holding your child. Improvements in comfort, behavior, and coordination can often be seen in as little as one lesson.
