LEARN HOW TO SUPPORT BABIES TO RECOVER FROM BIRTH TRAUMA with Dr. DENNIS HERTENSTEIN
Open to anyone who wants to learn, big welcome to body workers, doulas, midwives, lactation consultants, and nurses. Cranial-sacral work combined with pre and perinatal psychology tools, when used as soon as possible after birth, can reduce the need for medical intervention, and the severity of birth trauma. We will explore the anatomy of the skull, neck and back pertinent to birth trauma, including practical information about the location and function of cranial nerves and blood supply. There will be experiential exercises, and facilitated demo sessions with babies.
