Abstract:

Have you ever wondered about the baby’s experience of pregnancy, birth and postpartum and whether it affects birth outcomes? We now know that the mother’s experience can influence the baby in many ways. In addition, prenatal development and birth depend upon a sequence that becomes a pattern in the body. Somatic or body therapies to support healing from birth trauma are becoming more prevalent. Come hear about prenatal and perinatal psychology and health, or the exploration of a baby’s experience of conception, pregnancy and birth and how it has lifelong implications. This talk will outline several best practices for clinicians in perinatal settings of all kinds based on this perspective with a focus on education and somatic tools to ensure high prevalence of application. Current research, education and training programs will be cited, and case studies provided as time allows.
