APPPAH Live! Exploring Birth Psychology – Communication within the Womb, Birth and Postpartum with Myrna Martin

May 9 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Communication within the Womb, Birth and Postpartum          

This down to earth, very practical presentation will delineate communication processes for parents to reach into the womb to their babies, that can also be utilized to help settle and create a continuum of love and safety during and after birth. Welcoming practices at conception/discovery and birth are vital for the conceptus, embryo, fetus and newborn.   Tapping games, music and other sounds, tastes, visual cues, smells, and movements appropriate to this continuum will all be outlined.  This will build on the timeline of development of the stages of the babies’ senses in the womb, and after birth.  Tips for the parents in creating a resonant field for the baby to grow in, within and without the womb will be shared.
