Abstract:

There is an embryological blueprint for what happens at birth (and before) for the baby on all levels of their being, physiologically, psychologically and emotionally. An awareness of this blueprint creates a new conceptual framework for what is embedded in the process of birth. Once you are aware of the sequence of events that occurs spontaneously throughout the process of gestation, labor, birth and beyond (a sequence that all mammals follow) you will have a glimpse of how birth was “set up to work in case no one was there”. When interruptions occur in the sequence of birth a profound imprint is left which impacts how we come into relationship with everyone we meet, with ourselves, and how we live our lives daily. Specific methods are taught for healing, repair and integration.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Participantswill be able to recognize and relate to birth from the baby’sperspective/experience (not only the mother’s perspective/experience).
Objective 2: Participants will be able to name the key elements of the golden/sacred hour for healing and integration even when it does not occur in the hour after birth, and why it is important.
Objective 3: Participants will be able to list when and how newborns and babies show their story of what happened at their birth.They will learn how to support this process and be able to list what is happening.
