Helping babies and families after a difficult birth
With Myrna Martin
A minority of babies in our culture are currently birthed with no chemical or surgical interventions. Chemical imprinting includes prenatal drug exposure, anesthesia, epidurals, analgesics, and induction drugs. Surgical imprinting refers to forceps, vacuum extraction, cesarean section, and other prenatal and infant surgery. Myrna will delineate the effects of surgical and chemical imprinting on prenates and babies' psyches, movement patterns, physical structure, energy patterns and the central and autonomic nervous systems. Practical healing tools will be delineated, particularly biodynamic craniosacral approaches and relational interventions. Video clips will be used to demonstrate.
