Abstract: 

Case studies are given which describe how a birth/prenatal paradigm is used to treat adult psychological disturbance. The authors discuss diagnostic cues for discriminating prenatal from perinatal issues. Several treatment techniques are explored: verbal psychotherapy, breathwork, a prenatal therapy procedure done in warm water, and movement therapy.
