This book is for women and men who are at the point in their lives and their partnerships of thinking about having a baby. I would like to help them on the wonderful rollercoaster ride of being a parent with all its joys, exhilarations, sadness, frustrations and just plain hard work. It is very worthwhile, and there are enormous rewards for taking the ride. Learning to Love seemed to emerge from the years of time and effort that I put into trying to understand the early developmental stages that we all go through. I have read extensively about infant development and spent years observing infants from birth, watching the development of the relationship between mother and baby and the growing relationship with the father. I have practised as a psychologist for twenty-five years, and since the mid 1980s have worked intensively with a number of people whose early bonding process was disturbed. This area is something I have explored deeply, and although my knowledge and experience remain imperfect I would like to share the main features of my learning. I also wrote this book because I would have liked it to exist before I had my own child, so I could have read and understood its concepts. It is my belief that if I had known then much of what I do now I would have been a better mother myself, and hence would have had a richer experience in rearing my child. I wasn’t a bad parent, but child-rearing could have been a more meaningful and enjoyable experience for both me and my daughter. So Learning to Love is also a book for my daughter, in the hope that she may discover the fullness of the experience of parenthood in a way that was not always possible for me.
