Nourishing the Roots of Love

image of hands holding a heart

We can nourish the roots of love by ...

respecting the sensitivity and intelligence of the newborn baby and the unborn child

acknowledging the impact of birth and early life on physical and mental health, and on the ability to love and relate

protecting the natural processes of conception, gestation, birth and bonding

recognising, preventing and healing trauma, in babies

supporting the emotional and physical health of the mother

offering holistic treatments for babies to resolve early difficulties

accepting and respecting the baby's experience and feelings

and by nurturing emotional and spiritual health from conception onwards
