The inspiration for birthlight’s gentle yet dynamic approach to baby swimming comes from Amazonian forest people with whom Françoise Freedman lived as an anthropologist. Her swimming background stimulated her interest in the joy of water that forest people experienced daily as families and also in the ways that children playfully taught younger siblings how to swim. Birthlight infant aquatics courses bring together principles of body balance in water, swimming teaching techniques, research on the teaching of water safety skills for babies and the positive effects of joyful parent-baby interaction on overall child development.

Birthlight techniques are at the forefront of international approaches to baby swimming. Françoise received the prestigious Virginia Hunt Award in 2009 (World Aquatic Baby Children Association). Underlying the birthlight courses is the conviction that a life long love of water and enjoyment of swimming are best generated by a confident and loving handling of babies in water, by swimming with babies and by imparting gentle progressive methods towards unaided swimming, without ever resorting to forceful conditioning.

Birthlight courses have been developed with contributions by Birthlight Infant Aquatics tutors Amanda Gawthorpe, Shawn Tomlinson, Phil Geary and Julia de Lucchi.

All practices taught are consistent with research developments in infant physiology and infant psychology and with technical advances in swimming. Our programme blends enjoyment, safety and systematic foundations for swimming in interactive practices for parent/infant pairs. The focus is on the parent as much as on the baby.

Françoise’s book ‘Water Babies’ (Anness 1999) is now in its 6th edition, available in Spanish, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, French and Russian. Birthlight training materials are constantly updated.
