Meet Your Host

Dr. Rocio Zunini, PhD

Hello everyone! I am Rocío, a brain science lover and mother of two!

Just like babies´ brains develop at an astonishing rate, so does the parental brain, growing, evolving and adapting to the beautiful and challenging experience of parenthood.

I created this summit to give you the knowledge and tools that will help you create a thriving environment for the parents you support so that they can reach their goals and you can deepen your sense of purpose in the valuable service you provide.

For professionals supporting parents

This is the first ever summit focused on the parental brain and what we can do to help it thrive. Every presentation is focused on some aspect that is important in the transition to parenthood, and how to apply it to your practice.
