Pre & Perinatal Attachment Facilitation
“To do this (healing) is to literally rewrite your life, it’s flow, and your destiny.”
– Anaiya Sophia from the book Womb Wisdom
Pre and Perinatal Attachment Facilitation fosters a deep bond between a father, mother and baby. This supports the overall health of the baby and the whole family.
Healthy Attachment is something that impacts us for our entire lives, from infancy to adulthood. Strong attachments can be fostered at the beginning of life, helping babies and families to start off with strong bonds, and it can also be done later in life, if a strong, healthy attachment was not available early in life.
Through private somatic sessions, we explore and discover your own gestation and birth experiences. As we support the integration of any past imprints (unresolved nervous system patterns) you and your baby are released from carrying these limiting patterns. As you strengthen your connection with yourself you create more intimate and enjoyable relationships with others.
For everyone, healthy attachment promotes:
- Confidence and self-worth
- Energy and vitality
- Ease and pleasure
- Connection with Self
- Healthier relationships
- Relaxation and trust in life
- Joy in life
- Sense of isolation and abandonment
- Stress levels and anxiety
- Sleep issues
- Recurring and persistent health issues
- Difficulty in maintaining healthy long-term relationships
We know you want your newborn’s first (and every) breath in the world to be filled with the knowing that:
He/she is loved, He/she is safe, He/she is welcomed
What can you expect in these sessions?
For Moms, Babies & Families:
If you are a family preparing for birth…
We will take the time to work with your individual needs, discuss birth support options, and offer 2-3 sessions before and after the birth of your newborn. Sharing essential tools as to how to create ease and harmonious attachment with this new addition to your family, supporting the health of the parent’s connection with each other as primary.
If you are parents with a toddler…
We will take the time to explore your infant/toddler’s somatic communication that reveals through movement, play dynamics, their unresolved ‘birth/gestation’ story that wishes to be shared, heard, integrated and validated. We create a container together that holds a field of trust, allowance, presence, and attunement. This early resolve offers healthier development throughout life!
Sessions can be incorporated with a Biodynamic Craniosacral session, experienced lying on a massage table. We take relevant birth history into account with the intention of nervous system integration and settling. In all sessions we use somatic practices such as Pre and Perinatal Attachment Facilitation and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. We support the integration of unresolved trauma held in the nervous system around your own birth and gestation experience, returning you to a more relaxed and peaceful state. Once you experience this yourself, you can offer this to your children.
Through talk, touch, movement and stillness, we re-pattern the nervous system to experience a greater sense of connection and resourcefulness.
At Somatic Sanctuary, we know that how you came into the world lays the foundation for the rest of your life!
