Preparing an environment of connection, intention and purpose during pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period
In this session we will explore the understanding that learning begins before birth, and the ways that mothers and fathers can connect and relate with their child during the months of pregnancy to help facilitate this.
We will discuss how your practices, preparation, and planning during the pre-birth period aid your newborn during the transition from the sensory rich inner world to the outer one.
We will uncover the importance of hormones naturally released during labor and birth, and how disturbances can impact the natural birthing process. We will go over ways that parents can help facilitate and create a gentle and natural birth environment.
We will learn about your newborn's points of reference and the basic needs of your newborn, from a Montessori perspective.
