Ros Vroom was born and raised in South Africa. She qualified as a Registered Nurse and as a Registered Midwife. She has lived and worked overseas, including in Australia where she qualified as a Neonatal (newborn) Intensive Care Nurse. Ros’ passion has always been to discover what ingredients give infants the best future. Ros has been an advocate for Dad inclusive Maternity care since 2000 when she discovered the research into the long term benefits of warm fathering to the infant. Subsequently Ros made a video for first time Dads which is endorsed by the Australian College of Midwives, and parenting author Steve Biddulph.
1n 2012 Ros discovered the Gottman “Bringing Baby Home” program, based on 20 years of research which included newly-wed couples who went on to have their first baby. Her focus then shifted to the quality of the relationship between the care-givers, particularly new parents, so that they can provide a loving environment in the home.
Ros has qualified in many Gottman programs and is a Train the Trainer in the Bringing Baby Home Program.
In South Africa, Ros is adapting the program for disadvantaged communities, to equip individuals with evidence based skills to have respectful relationships and build healthy strong families.
