On the 19th of October 2018, Katrin Kristjansdottir gave a lecture at the Nordic Baby swim conference in Selfoss, Iceland.

Katrin gave a 40 minute talk on her preliminary research, with Olafur Gislason, on attachment and the wellbeing of a mother and baby during a baby swimming course.

(Can baby swimming foster a healthy connection between mother and baby and contribute to the wellbeing of the mother as well as the baby?)

Katrin discussed attachment between a mother and a baby and her preliminary findings. Which showed that after an intense baby swimming course both the mother’s wellbeing and the attachment between the mother and her baby improved.  

The talk was very well received and led to further research cooperation with both  the Austrian and Icelandic baby swim associations.
