I can’t help but share this video I found through a friend’s facebook sharing as the title caught my attention Skip Your Meditation and Watch This Instead written by Kristin Luce, a Meditation Instructor and a Psychotherapist. True to me as per the title suggested, I did not get the kind of peaceful and joyful feeling from my daily meditation but this video does, it calms my mind and gives me lots of endorphin-the love hormone by watching this 5 minutes video.
Baby has gone through tremendous stress through the journey of birth. Often ended with a traumatic experience I described in my previous post Overlook Birth Trauma-How Were We Born. While baby is still adjusting to the air rather than fluid that the baby was familiar with, separation from the mother can cause more anxiety for both the mother and baby. Baby’s first hour after birth is crucial to calm the baby nervous system by providing a sense of security through bonding, touching and eye contact.
This video shows how to handle baby with water and touch, an amazingly soothing bath for a newborn baby, the bath that every baby should get giving baby’s not just soothing but calming the nervous system. If you are giving birth in the hospital, watch how they bath your baby. Are they gentle? Are you providing the soothing bath that your baby needs after a long stressful journey coming on land rather that the fluid that they are familiar to before birth.
