Ourbirthjourney launches a comprehensive baby therapy course
This detailed course is designed to give health practitioners the skills and tools needed to offer thorough and sensitive therapeutic help to babies and their carers (mothers, fathers and the wider family unit) during the period from pre-conception, through pregnancy, birth and the first year of life.
An in-depth description of the baby’s journey from conception to birth will enable practitioners to support mothers in their choices around pregnancy, birth and beyond. The course is designed for anyone who wishes to work with mothers and babies to help with issues such as colic, unsettledness, excessive crying, tongue tie, feeding difficulties and healing a traumatic birth as well as supporting mothers through helping with musculo-skeletal, exercise and emotional issues during this period.
The course content draws on recent findings from the field of prenatal and perinatal psychology as well as offering practical, hands-on skills to work with mothers and babies during this time. The course will give a wide overview of different approaches that include listening skills and embodied presence enabling both mother and baby to be heard and healed from barriers to connection and physical and mental well-being. The course is suitable for anyone wishing to work with babies and families in an integrated way: Midwives, Doulas, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Manual Therapists, Psychotherapists, Psychologists etc.
The course comprises of 10 modules of both online and in-person modules of 4 days each. Each module will allow time and space for personal process/debriefing work held within a safe space.
