I, along with my infant massage colleagues, am dedicated to having the western world provide the benefits of massage to babies and their families. My dream is that all babies shall receive what nature insists upon for healthy personhood . . . early bonding and fulfillment of basic needs. I want to see support from research for these common sense notions . . . that good relationships and communication established through early bonding might indeed avoid problems later in children's school effort, community participation, and negative personal attitudes. I am looking for an opportunity to study, work, and grow with people in the prenatal psychology field. If you know of such a position please contact me.
