Birth to Breast and Supported Attachment
Ray will share with you amazing heartfelt ways to enter into the world of babies and demonstrate how the earliest experiences of life from the womb, birth and the first weeks of life have direct effect on our lives today. This talk and workshop will focus on birth and the primary attachment period in the first days of life.
Ray will lead you in exercises that teach new ways of being with babies and their families. This will be a very practical workshop where practitioners will develop skills that they can apply to being with babies in the context of their families. Each exercise will be followed with group discussion and integration talks.
