Be inspired: A beautiful short film on the importance of the bonding in the first 1000 days

Ububele filmHave a look at this lovely short film recently released by the Ububele Educational & Psychotherapy Trust:

“The first 1000 Days of Life, from conception to age two, is the most important time in a child’s life,” says Tony Hamburger, Executive Director of Ububele Educational & Psychotherapy Trust, which produced the film together with Bloom & Stone. “The bond between the baby and primary caregiver, which usually is the mother, is so important for the healthy development of every little person.”

“Umdlezane – the First 1000 Days” was filmed entirely in Alexandra, Johannesburg and follows an Ububele home visitor into the home of a mother and her new born baby. This is a moving story about love and hope for our children and the future of South Africa. Umdlezane is an Nguni word for the period when the mother and newborn are protected by family members and allowed several months to bond. It is also the name of one of Ububele’s programmes – the Ububele Umdlezane Parent Infant Psychotherapy programme.
