People's pregnant bodies and parenting journeys have given rise to a flourishing strata of birth and parenting support professionals in recent years. Our growing collective awareness around the sensitivity and importance of the early formative period has spurred an exciting time of new research and best-practice development aimed at improving the way in which we carry, birth, and parent our babies.
In the last 20 years, perinatal research and therapy work has intersected with psychology, neurobiology, and epigenetics to produce some poignant findings. This fertile collaboration of disciplines has been able to establish unprecedented correlations between the quality of our time spent in the womb and the first few years of life, and our life outcomes across a broad spectrum of variables. From physical health, to education level, to financial success, to mental stability, to relationship health, to over-all life quality - everything we do and become as adults seems to point back to this initial period of gestation through early childhood as one of the greatest contributing factors.Read more

We are not our story! We are not what happened to us. Yes, it is very important to know our history, to understand what is behind the force that is driving us. It IS, absolutely, important to understand what started our habit of giving our power away, of going unconscious. But, by no means, it's not who we are! What happened to us is not our true identity. True identity is in the space beyond the story. Build the bridge! There is a You that has a story. That You is so much bigger than any story you know!

Post partum bliss bubbles are exquisite and delicate. The immediate hours and weeks after giving birth offer a once in a lifetime opportunity for a freshly made or enlarged family to absorb the new Being who has arrived. Creating a calm peaceful atmosphere allows the newborn to explore their infinitely expanded universe and the accompanying sensory explosion, at a slow, gentle pace.
Babies arrive wide open to receive love. Their senses are more heightened than they will ever be again, with neurological and psychological habits of perception, understanding and response being set at an incredible rate. Optimally the feelings of being loved, accepted, adored, completely safe and connected to everyone around them will be imprinted. This ‘limbic imprint’, created in conception, gestation, birth and the early years stays with us throughout our lives, creating a subconscious emotional comfort zone and ‘settings’ for our nervous systems.
In order to honour the newborn and the birthing family, and create optimal health and wellbeing in this period there many things one can do. It might take some consideration and time and you may need the help of others. Maybe you need to stretch your comfort zones around receiving and asserting yourself. Both are necessary skills for Motherhood, so it’s all part of the divine design!Read more
If you are considering circumcision for your baby boy, you need to see what it looks like. Given that the specific erogenous nerve endings on the foreskin that the doctor so mercilessly tortures are the most sensitive area of the entire body, designated for the full and accurate perception of pleasure, AND the fact that a new baby is generally about 100 times more sensitive than an adult, we can't even begin to imagine what this baby feels...Read more
After having a child, the new mother has a very complex hormonal cocktail in her system, which is very different from what's going on with the father of the new baby. It would take a whole book to describe this difference. But for the purpose of this short article, I'll focus on one of the many aspects, - postpartum sexuality.
