Here's what someone had to say about The Blossom Method™

Vivien, just about to begin chapter two and already I am amazed. I feel almost embarrassed that I didn't think of it--I mean it's so simple, so natural, so obvious (now) that it's as if humanity has been living in a cave all this time. How could we have NOT recognized this before? One day, parents will look back on your book and say to themselves, "Really? There was a time when people didn't already know this? How could this be?" Congratulations on being the one to figure it out. Makes me wish I had a baby so I could use the Blossom Method right now. :D Hugs!

To Baby Sign or not to Baby Sign that is the question

Dear reader....

Dear reader, you are about to embark on a life-changing journey. Seriously, this book will empower you to be able to make a significant positive difference in your own life and most importantly give your baby the best possible start in the world. I have written this brief introduction to explain why I am quoted on the front cover of this book as saying “Truly groundbreaking … a MUST read for every parent”. There are very few books that will make a profound difference in world, but I can say with confidence, and with delight, that this book is one of them. When I was invited to review the Blossom Method™, I had no idea I would be privy to one of the most ground breaking discoveries for parenting and child development of our time. Babies are born with an innate need to connect and communicate with their parents. We know this is true, when they stare deep into our eyes, move their tongues, cry, smile and reach out to touch, but until now it’s pretty much been a guessing game as to what it is our babies are really saying. How many times has a parent cried in desperation “if only you could tell me what you need I would take care of it”. Well, thanks to Vivien Sabel, now learning your baby’s language and communicating with her IS possible. Since reading this book, I’ve wondered why it has taken so long to discover the secret language of babies. My only explanation is that baby body language, like gravity was always there, but like Isaac Newton it took an amazing person with extraordinary talents to discover it and share it with the world. Vivien’s unique life circumstances of growing up with a deaf mother gave her a profound gift – the ability to notice and to read even the slightest body gesture. Thanks to Vivien, now every parent can practice and develop that same sensitivity using the easy-to-follow step-by-step guide provided in this book. I only wish I had the Blossom Method™ when I was a new mother and spent many sleepless nights trying to guess what my baby needed.
Not knowing, guessing and desperation can now be a thing of the past as you and your baby can learn to communicate from day one. Your baby can have her needs met once you know what to look for in order to understand her. Communication and understanding are the basis upon which a deep life-long bond between you and your child can be established. This will not only change your relationship with your baby, but your baby’s relationship with the world. So you can see why this groundbreaking book is a must read for any new parent! As an educator and advocate for the development of life skills in children, I am so pleased to be able to endorse this book and to witness the incredible difference this will make in the early days of family life for new parents. Most of all, I wait with baited breath to see the difference the Blossom Method™ will make in the world supporting the development a new generation of babies who can communicate, feel understood and form deep bonds with their parents.
