Birth from a Baby’s Perspective – An Introduction to Integrative Baby Therapy

This one day workshop is suitable for conventional and alternative health care practitioners, including doulas, midwives, health visitors, nurses, bodyworkers, psychologists, psychotherapists etc. Also suitable for parents, educators and anyone who is interested in how birth may have a life-long impact on us.

Our experiences in the womb, at birth and shortly after birth profoundly shape our sense of who we are and our perceptions of the world. This workshop is intended for anyone who is interested in learning more about Integrative Baby Therapy. It will also be of interest to professionals who work with babies and their families, to parents and anyone who is interested in how our earliest experiences shape us. The day will include seminar style teaching, video footage of therapy with babies and some experiential exercises to access our own embodied experience. Topics include:

  • The four stages of birth of birth from a baby’s perspective (as opposed to the three stages of birth from the obstetrical perspective) and how each of these stages may impact us
  • How each of the stages of birth may set up specific core beliefs and life statements
  • How obstetrical interventions impact babies and have life-long consequences
  • The nature of bonding and attachment in the first nine months of life and how unresolved prenatal and birth trauma can impact this
  • How we can learn to listen to babies and to our own early experience in a new, more accurate and empathic way
