APPPAH Live! Exploring Birth Psychology with Jeane Rhodes, PhD

February 7 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM


Birth Memory  

This presentation begins with a look at a preliminary study of 2½ to 3½ year-old children who were interviewed about their birth memories. Later research using body language focused on 5-to-9 year-old children. Videotapes of these children doing specific postures were analyzed for clues to prenatal and birth experience (each child saw exactly the same photos of an articulated figure posed in the postures they were asked to do). Although this research was done in the mid-1990s the findings will be discussed with regard to their current relevance. Please note this material was previously presented at an ISPPM Conference in Maastricht, Netherlands, 2016.
