The environment of life after birth
We will focus on the months following birth, as the infant interacts within the
environment of the family, transitioning and adapting to life in the world. During this period, both mother and baby move through a natural process of attachment and separation, helping each other come into acceptance of their new lives.
We will explore the needs of the newborn, living in the period of the Unconscious Mind, and the Sensitive Periods, as well as areas of care in the home environment. This process centers on relationship and connection, which is essential and ongoing.
