The Two Way Umbilical Cord: Maternal-Fetal Bonding
This presentation involves a professional discussion of the world inside the womb and how mothers can connect with their unborn child. Topics discussed will be stress, fetal blood brain barrier, hormones, and the world of fetal senses. We will then move to a discussion of patient/client activities to deepen maternal bonding, such as journaling, journeying, and meditation. There will also be a discussion of maternal-fetal heart synchronization and the concept of heart rate variability seen in the fetus, but is also seen in the mother.
