From the third trimester in utero, through birth and the crucial bonding time that follows, our primal experiences mark us for life. Our moods, attitudes, relationship styles, our reactions under stress, even the functioning of our immune systems bear the imprint of how we were ushered into life. Our responses at this life-stage have the potential to immunize a child from a broad range of physical and mental disorders for life – or create long-term vulnerabilities.

Beyond informing parents, how can we help to imbue them with the emotional capacity for healthy attachment? How can we protect parents from parent-guilt, when sub-optimal attachment is unavoidable? What healing experiences can we provide when attachment does not go according to plan?

In this presentation, you will learn about emotional (implicit) memory of early life, and how it affects our behavior; primal health and the essence of healthy attachment; key supportive experiences that enhance parents’ capacity for attachment; how to provide information on healthy pregnancy, birth and attachment – while protecting parents from parent-guilt; and more!
