Etienne will first guide you through your own prebirth, birth and postbirth experiences in order to remind you of your own moments at this formative time in your life. From this point you will have developed more empathy with a newborn child. You are then prepared to work with babies, small children, soon-to-be mothers, and postpartum mothers. You will learn how to lovingly communicate with both mother and child; and use craniosacral techniques to assess and correct the effects of a traumatic birth of a young client.
