A Healthy Relationship leads to a healthier Baby!
Stress and anxiety have adverse effects on the fetus and child.
Satisfying relationships have shown to reduce maternal stress and anxiety and provide an optimal environment for your baby’s mental and physical development.
Early relationships set a template for your child’s ability to learn healthy responses to internal and external stressors.
Nature or Nurture? Both! Brain development is influenced by both genetics and life experiences!
Rapid brain development takes place in the first year of life. Just because a baby cannot understand harsh words does not mean they will not be affected by them. Emotional tone is important!
Early interactions directly affect the way the brain is wired
Being a New Parent is Difficult!
