Baby Dynamics: A Full Spectrum Approach to Working with Babies
(duration 2hrs approx, NB; some video has been excluded from this recording for copyright reasons)
In this workshop, baby practitioner Kate White leads practitioners through a variety of skills to help support the mother-baby dyad and families with babies. She has a unique approach that combines trauma resolution with Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and Prenatal and Perinatal Somatic Healing. For this post conference session, Kate combines three levels of education into one day so that participants experience a variety of skills: Somatic Skills for the Practitioner; Working with Compression; and Working with the Midface. This workshop is best for practitioners with craniosacral therapy skills. Already working with babies is not a required prerequisite.
· Apply the prenatal and perinatal somatic approach to working with babies and families
· Demonstrate a working knowledge of the impact of compression on babies, and be able to explain that to a parent.
· Identify different structures of the face and some craniosacral approaches to helping babies breastfeed who are experiencing tongue tie symptoms.
