We'll be discussing the effects of stress and crying on newborns through toddlers, inspired by our favorite neuroscientist: Dr. Nils Bergman. (You may recognize his name from his innovative research and advocacy for Kangaroo Mother Care for premies.)
*Should you let your baby cry?
*What are the effects of stress and crying? (respiration, brain development, etc.)
*Why do some babies react differently to stress than others?
*Being the best mother you can be--how to take care of yourself while responding to your children's needs.
There will be plenty of time to discuss these and whatever else is on your mind. This might be a great meeting to bring your mom, partner, mother-in-law, or care provider of choice along too!
As always, our meetings are FREE and babies/children are welcome. Hope to see you there:
