Family Nurture Intervention is based on the Calming Cycle theory of Dr. Martha Welch. The central hypothesis of the theory is that repeated calming sessions between mother and infant will lead to improved outcomes for both infant and mother.
The intervention employs repeated calming sessions in order to reduce discomfort and distress between mother and the infant and to attract the two to one another emotionally. Families are encouraged to establish a calming session routine at home, as it will help the mother calm her infant when distressed.
