Attachment Parenting is for everyone! Attachment Parenting is about building strong bonds with your child by responding to their needs in a timely and sensitive way. It is about modelling behaviour you wish to see and having respect, empathy and a desire for connection. It is about life-long relationship quality built on foundations of physical closeness and emotional understanding.
Attached families may enjoy the benefits of bedsharing, babywearing or breastfeeding but these are not essential; they simply support the ability to be a highly responsive parent. The essential part of Attachment Parenting is a willingness to know and nurture your child - through every developmental change and every challenging behaviour, with trust in your instincts about what you and your child needs. Attachment Parenting is about balance too; it is about parental self-empathy and self-care and finding the support we all need when it matters most. So reach out and find a community to share in the exciting journey of parenthood by finding your local AP group and become part of this welcoming family.

Kate told us "This project was born out of my experiences of having my first child, and how much it made me question myself and everything I thought was normal. I hope the film starts a debate, a thought or something that will help you to follow your instinct and not be led down the mainstream, self-conscious, tried and failed route."
