Birth from the baby’s perspective
Online Workshop with Joy Horner
Integrative baby therapy draws from a number of sources including Pre and Perinatal Psychology, Body Psychotherapy and Craniosacral Therapy. It is also informed by recent research in areas such as self-regulation, neurobiology, epigenetics, biodynamic embryology, attachment theory, traumatology and cross-cultural studies.
I will describe the four stages of birth from a baby’s perspective (as opposed to the three stages of birth from the obstetrical perspective), and how each of these stages may impact babies. This may manefest as an unsettled baby who is hard to settle or cries a lot. You will learn how to listen to babies, and to help them integrate these early experiences.
We will also explore attachment and how unresolved prenatal and birth trauma can impact this.
