I work as an educator and therapist in maternal and infant health and I am encouraged by a client to tell about what I do here in this forum. Babies are conscious; they sense and feel everything that the mother feels. Mothers and families wanting to conceive and give birth are under a lot of pressure these days. Stress, the fast pace of society, and birthing practices all collude to make life harder for babies. I see many stressed infants; many have difficulty breastfeeding and feeling relaxed. My work helps them through a variety of touch therapies, education, and translation of what the baby is saying. I give families skills to help their babies at home. It is a good story.
