The First Nine Months Shape Your Life

Time magazine has finally got the message that babies are sensitive and profoundly aware of what’s going on around them, right through pregnancy … and that a baby’s experience of their environment in pregnancy will have a lasting impact, for life. This month’s article in Time by Annie Murphy Paul is worth a read if you’re interested in what happens during womb-time, and how this sets us up for life.

The interest among scientists reflects what we’ve been sharing at Babiesknow for over 5 years – it’s so exciting to witness the news spreading through a highly respected magazine.

The Babiesknow programme is based on our wish to treat babies, from conception, as unique, highly sensitive individuals who really know what they need, and what’s going on around them, in particular the mother’s sense of well-being. We’re delighted that the message has arrived in the mainstream.

Kitty, Helen, Yehudi and Harriet, the Babiesknow team, have recently had an amazing infusion of information and insights on a four-day workshop with Ray Castellino, who is one of the doyens of understanding how a new baby experiences their world. We’ve come away with a deeper bond between us, a profound trust and understanding of one another. We also have the newest, most up-to-date, information in the field of peri-natal and pre-natal psychology. We’re all brimming with enthusiasm to share this information with you during our workshops and seminars in the coming year.

Our first Babiesknow weekend since spending time with Ray Castellino was definitely the best we have ever had. We were able to incorporate both the feeling aspect and the rational aspect of communicating – using our left and right brains – and create space for some life-changing insights among the parents, babies, expectant parents and grandparents who joined us.

The publicity being given to babies and womb-time in the world’s press at the moment really reinforces the Babiesknow mission to transform the way babies are welcomed into this world … watch this space for more developments at Babiesknow, and across the planet. 

Let’s hear it for babies, who are finally being heard!!
