|Individuals and Families:
Having and caring for babies in our
busy full lives can be challenging. If you’ve come to my website, something
is calling you to learn more, get help and support, or
looking to heal or transform aspects of your/your baby’s
life patterns. Whatever brought you here – there
is so much we are learning in PPN research and from babies
that is really incredibly resourceful and healing.
Parents who have incorporated the PPN
perspective and BEING WITH BABIES ways to relate to the
whole baby often express their gratitude. They relate
how much happier, joyful, able to settle and sleep, how ‘present’ their
baby is, how much closer they have become, and much more
rewarding parenting feels to them.
Two common difficulties families express:
First, the information can add to parents’ stress or worry to do everything “right” – “My
baby birth imprints for life-EEKS!”
Secondly, even when parents want to incorporate these
new ways to be with their baby and parent, they have little
exposure or modeling of how to do on a day-to-day basis.
My wish is to help families feel informed, supported,
empowered, and nourished; to help bridge all this new
PPN information and ways to support babies so that it
can truly add to the enjoyment and confidence of parents
AND give the best start for the baby. I want parents
to feel supported and held as we explore the territory
of healing and growing.
I do find when families begin before
or during pregnancy
to incorporate the Being with Babies principles, the babies
learn these new ways of being at an imprinted level, and
it is part of them from the beginning of life.
Families give me very good feedback on how effective the
gentle, subtle energy psychology tools I use and teach
them to use work to help release old patterns and issues
and create new more life-enhancing ones elegantly.
Resolve and transform own issues, fears,
conflicts, or stress patterns. Doing this BEFORE getting
pregnant is gives you and your baby a wonderful beginning
together. Prepare for conscious conception and begin your
relationship with your baby.
and transform own issues, fears, phobias, conflicts,
stress patterns–whatever inhibits or blocks you
or you and your partner from having the experience you
want for you and for your baby.
Learn specific new ways to establish
and deepen your communication and bond with your baby
Learn and experience new ways to settle
and relax in your body – feels great to you and is a key for your baby’s
development. Plus your baby will already have those settling
skills for after he/she is born!
Often if parents have had a difficulties
previously: such as miscarriages, abortions, infertility,
sexual abuse, a traumatic or unresolved previous birth
experience, a loss of a baby, or generational patterns
of these things – often
this is when people call for help to work with these painful
unresolved issues before the baby’s birth.
Going beyond the status quo – to
optimize the experience and well-being of the parents,
the baby, and the relationship that speak to the whole
Birth preparation for birth – work with fears and
unresolved issues, learn how to prepare yourself and your
baby for the journey of birth to optimize your birth experience
even if everything doesn’t go as planned. Can enhance
any other birth preparation method.
Prepare for Baby and Parenting - Prepare by learning simple
yet very empowering ways to optimize the first hours and
weeks of life as you.
After Birth – Now with Baby
Support new levels of optimal bonding
and baby development. Often parents have lots of questions,
worries, unresolved feelings/issues from birth experience,
have feelings triggered by the challenges of 24/7 parenting,
and want help to better read their baby’s cues and communicate with them
in these new ways. That’s where I can help. Many
baby stress patterns are seen in feeding, sleep, separation,
transition, and inability to settle or self-calm. These
often can be helped with the PPN lens, energy psychology
tools, and new ways to consciously relate with your baby
during these stressful patterns.
During Infancy and Preschool Years
Because the new PPN and BEING WITH
BABIES findings and principles are so new that many parents
have just heard of them only after they have had their
babies or their babies have grown into toddlers and pre-schoolers.
I help with a variety of attachment, behavioral, relational
stress patterns to re-establish the child’s natural
well-being and healthy growth oriented life. I coach
parents on news ways to approach and help their child
during their difficulties as they occur.
I support parents to resolve their
own early unresolved patterns, current triggers and upsets
in parenting, and create more confidence, enjoyment and
security in how they parent.
I support babies and young kids to
resolve early stress/trauma patterns before they become
their foundational life patterns – it
is never too early to heal!
We all continue to update our practices with new information
and research findings. The prenatal and perinatal psychology
findings call us to deepen, expand, and refresh how we
support babies and parents. For professionals working with
adults, often the PPN lens helps professionals identify
the origins and work with current diminishing life patterns
and conditions more effectively and efficiently.
I support individual professionals in their process to
incorporate new PPN principles, understandings, assessments,
and interventions. I also help them integrate this in their
personal lives - to explore and resolve their early issues
from their own prenatal and perinatal experience and/or
from their experiences having their own children.
I also assist students working on community projects and
and Professional Groups
I help create, design, articulate, implement PPN and integrated
early development perspectives for community intervention
programs, professional groups, prenatal, birth, newborn,
infant, and early childhood intervention programs.
I look forward to being a resource for you.
