Susanne Kupfner, a B.A.S.E.® volunteer mother:

“When we first got there, we were a little nervous, particularly me. But the whole experience was so positive, and it made us feel so good that I would really recommend it to others.

“The atmosphere that develops for the mother and child is great; that was our experience of it anyway.

“I was always astonished to hear how the children perceived what was going on. You know, about what Daniel was doing, for example, or how I responded in certain situations, or how we were feeling, and such. An entirely different consciousness develops, that’s all.

“For me it was a completely positive experience, and I think for Daniel too, because he was always so relaxed and then he fell asleep.”
