A set of 10 A4-sized colour laminated prints showing the remarkable abilities of a newborn baby.
Ethan shows that he is a going concern, and actively seeks to engage with his parents. Not only can he see, he can copy facial expressions, and he can both hear and recognise the sound of his mother's voice.
Ethan's First Half Hour is intended for use by midwives and health visitors in parenting and ante natal classes. The prints are stills from video filming and clearly show a newborn baby's desire and ability to actively communicate with his parents right from the very beginning. These powerful and inspiring pictures are particularly encouraging for fathers.
Each picture is captioned. The set has a note explaining that not all babies will respond the same way and many factors can effect a newborn baby's early responses, and this should be made clear to those seeing the images.
