Watch Diane Poole Heller interview well known Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy teacher John Chitty. They talk about the importance of attachment and bonding in the development of a healthy nervous and immune system.
A 60% rise in C-sections since 1996 is prompting the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to fidget self-consciously in their white coats. A study revealing the prolongation of the second stage of labor thanks to epidurals has been influential in identifying the iatrogenesis – doctor-caused harm – at the root of the cesarean problem.
Epidurals have become common place but they are also responsible for the increasing use of forceps, suction and c-sections. With epirdurals the birthing Mom loses her connection with the spontaneous ejection reflex of the birth process. She just can’t feel it. Further more the self attachment sequence may be interrupted as the infant is often less able to connect with their legs and complete the breast crawl.
We are in the middle of the fourth module of our Pre and Perinatal Professional Training with Myrna Martin and about 40 other like minded people interested in how our pre and perinatal experience shapes who we are as children and adults. Learning about my own birth imprints, repatterning them and bringing new awareness and skills to my work and life.
This module is about chemical and surgical imprints, so c-sections, epidurals, pitocin etc. It reminds me of how well our body is designed to give birth and how every intervention has a consequence.
Trust your body!
What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST)? Michael Shea, PhD, Franklyn Sills OD, and Michael Kern OD share their views in this insightful discussion. Experts in their field, these world renowned teachers and authors rarely have an opportunity to sit down together for a chat. Take a listen!
This week I have been reminded how much fun it is working with babies and children and how miraculous it can seem when the little ones bodies respond so dramatically..so happy to be well. I feel blessed.
Stress involved in labour produces stress hormones which enhance the babies ability to breathe, increases blood flow and energy supply while supporting bonding and the developing immune system.
This remarkable easy modification in diapering technique could make the difference in whether your baby has reoccurring colic... or not.
"So come, my friends, be not afraid.
We are so lightly here.
It is in love that we are made
In love we disappear."
