Best Practices in Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Somatic Health for Optimal Birth Outcomes
Have you ever wondered about the baby’s experience of pregnancy, birth and postpartum and whether it affects birth outcomes? We now know that the mother’s experience can influence the baby in many ways. In addition, prenatal development and birth depend upon a sequence that becomes a pattern in the body. Somatic or body therapies to support healing from birth trauma are becoming more prevalent. Come hear about prenatal and perinatal psychology and health, or the exploration of a baby’s experience of conception, pregnancy and birth and how it has lifelong implications. This talk will outline several best practices for clinicians in perinatal settings of all kinds based on this perspective with a focus on education and somatic tools to ensure high prevalence of application. Current research, education and training programs will be cited, and case studies provided as time allows.

‘He Fought Like a Lion’: Using Trauma Resolution Approaches to Support Professionals and Families with Babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
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.
