We experience our first relationship before we are born: as a baby we are connected with our mother while we are in her belly. This first connection is crucial in the human life, effects our cognitive, social and emotional development. The influence of prenatal and postnatal bonding is long lasting, carries us through our childhood and effects our bonding patterns in our adult life.
There are many exciting techniques that we use during BondingTherapy to create and deepen the connection between the mother and baby during pregnancy. The result can be astonishing: an interactive communication where we can prepare our little one to the life after birth.
Babies who go through an engaged relationship during pregnancy- such as Bonding Therapy- are usually calmer than other babies. There is also a tendency that their development is faster than usual and they are more alert from the beginning.
Bonding Therapy is not only beneficial for the babies: mothers go through less emotional stress, they get more prepared for the birth and the get much more comfortable with the feeling of being a mother. On Bonding Therapy mother-to-be's are also resolving prenatal and perinatal problems during the sessions, so often their self-love and the relationship with their own mother increases potentially.
The relation between mother and child can be developed after birth as well with BondingTherapy. It is never too late to start the therapy however, the earlier the better. Many new moms have postnatal stress-syndrome and show difficulties with emotionally connecting with their babies. On this special relational therapy they learn how to establish a better communication and being able to understand their baby more.
