Baby's First Words


an online course for proactive parents of babies 0-14 months

Imagine knowing exactly what to do to help your baby meet their speech and language milestones.

If you're anything like me, you've been waiting to hear your baby’s sweet voice since before they were born. You make sure to read to them often and talk to them all day long, but maybe you find yourself wondering:


“Is there anything else I could be doing?” 


Its totally normal to want your baby to meet their milestones on time (or even a little early)! I speak from experience when I say it can feel enormously stressful when that's not happening. Of course there are parts of our baby’s development that are out of our control, but as a parent, you have the power to give your baby the best possible start.

The Baby's First Words course will change how you communicate with your baby so that every interaction is strengthening the necessary skills they need to start talking.

You want to take an active role in your baby's speech and language development.

Baby's First Words is right for you if:

You're ready to learn what else you could be doing besides just talking and reading to your baby.

You want to strengthen your baby's foundational language skills so they are ready to talk when it's time.

You want to encourage your baby's first words with effective strategies used by speech-language pathologists.

You want to feel confident that you're doing all that you can to set your baby up for their first words!

What parents are saying...

Jess, mom of 4 month old

As a mom of a 4-month old baby, I want to do everything I can to prepare my baby for talking, but had no idea where to start. The real-life videos of you with your babies showed me exactly what I needed to do in everyday life. After watching this course, I feel confident in knowing how to set up a solid language foundation for my baby.

Meghan, mom of 11 month old

This course was just what I needed! I now know how to turn every moment into a language building one. It's so simple and I'm already seeing a difference in the way my daughter is responding. Thank you!!

Kate, mom of 9 month old

This course was so helpful for me as a first time mom. I really just wanted to make sure I was doing the right things and now I can relax knowing I'm stimulating my baby's language development during our everyday routines! The example videos were the clincher for me, it's beyond helpful to see you using your strategies with your own babies!
