Keynote speaker at the APPPAH Regional Conference at Bastyr University

Dr. Gerhard Schroth is the only facilitator for Prenatal Bonding (BA) to teach in the United States.  He will be presenting his talk on “The Powerful Impact of Prenatal Bonding (BA) in the Prevention of Postpartum Mood Disorders”.  Since the inception of Prenatal Bonding (BA) by Jenoe Raffai in 1995 more than 7000 cases have been facilitated with less than 1% of mothers suffering from postpartum depression.  Birthing is more empowering and nursing greatly improved. The babies have solid attachment and self-esteem enhancing full access to personal potential. At the moment there are less than 15 facilitators in the US working with families. The powerful program has the potential of changing the perceptions of women’s pregnancy experience as rewarding, empowering, and healthy.  The babies benefit from the positive uterine experience of being welcomed and that enhances healthy brain architecture. The neurobiology will improve as well as emotional regulation.
We know the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences. Now we have a tool to help prevent these devastating experiences by teaching parents ways to bring about positive outcomes. Dr. Schroth welcomes connection to answer any questions you may have on the program. His contact information in on the flyer. We hope you will join us in helping improve outcomes of birthing families in the US and Canada. Please welcome Dr. Schroth and his powerful program.

Prenatal Bonding (Bindungs-Analyse by Raffai) opens a window to the womb and helps to create an intense bonding between mother and the unborn baby. This method is at the same time an empowerment for the mother and the fetus and a great help for a full-term pregnancy and for giving birth much more easily. After birth the baby is easy to nurse and is in a solid attachment to his parents. The child has a remarkable degree of self-esteem and full access to its personal potential. - Based on extensive research in Psychoanalysis and Pre- and Perinatal Psychology and Medicine, the Hungarian Psychoanalyst Jenoe Raffai, PhD developed this ground-breaking strategy to support pregnant women from the early beginning of gestation till birth. More than 7000 cases in Europe and USA have been facilitated, researched and carefully evaluated since 1995 with outstanding results for physical as well as emotional maturity of the babies.
Prenatal Bonding (BA)is the most extended general health prevention for a future generation available till now.
