Having a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is one of the most stressful life events for a parent. The nervous system of babies and parents can go into survival mode, disrupting normal development, especially attachment and bonding. This presentation will detail the nervous system’s response to overwhelming births so that parents and professionals can better understand how to support themselves, their partners, parents and babies. Strategies for self-care and skills for increasing nervous system capacity for greater health will be presented. A successful story of reducing prematurity in a birth center will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Participants will be able to recognize nervous system states connected to survival states and trauma responses;

Objective 2: Participants will be able to learn skills of self and co-regulation;

Objective 3: Participants will be able to identify methods to help self, partners, parents, patients and babies to regulate survival states.
