Could childbirth be as distressing for the child as for the mother? And if so, does anyone care?
Alas it seems a deeply rooted idea that "it" doesn't see anything, "it" doesn't hear anything. How then, could "it" feel anything like sorrow or pain?
The answer is simple: "it" cries, "it" screams, in short, "it" is an object.
And what if, by chance, "it" is already a person?

Pregnancy & Birth

Indications

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) supports the health of mother and baby during conception, pregnancy, labor and birth. It is beneficial during times of stress and anxiety, fear and doubt, in pain and discomfort, through rough transitions of growth and pause.

It is gentle and non invasive for both mother and baby. A soft and light contact anywhere on the body while mum is resting comfortably, baby is feeding on mum or sleeping, a practitioner can weave in the treatment as mother and baby find their maximum comfort.

The work is resource oriented as the practitioner engages with health forces within the body, respecting boundaries and injuries that may be sensitive to attention and touch. This maintains safe and effective treatments with no contraindications to its use.

BCST is beneficial before and after conception, during the stages of pregnancy, labor, birth and after. Below are some of the most common conditions that BCST supports effectively. In the absence of a problem, it is a wonderful resource for deep relaxation and rejuvenation.
