Garbh Sanskar: Learning In The Womb IV

“From the moment of conception, the experience in the womb shapes the brain and lays the groundwork for personality, emotional temperament and the power of higher thought.”

Conception, the time we spend in the womb, and how we are born is truly meant to be the gift of a lifetime…for every child! Since we know now that it is so much easier to ‘build’ a healthy child than to ‘repair’ a broken adult, shouldn’t we do what we can to give babies an optimum start in life?

Empowered with this knowledge during pregnancy mothers and fathers can offer their child the best possible foundations for the rest of their life. Satisfying the physical, emotional and mental needs of each individual before birth, offers them the best chance to feel loved, safe and to be born in the best possible health.

Everything that happened before you took your first breath plays a part in shaping your present, and is the starting point in creating your future. What takes place from the moment you are conceived through your birth is a foundational experience that is replayed throughout your life. Unresolved traumatic impacts from this time can have negative effects, from infancy through old age. Understanding these traumas, how they are held in the body, and how to integrate them can help improve all areas of your life.

With its unique blend of the latest findings in epigenetics and pre- and perinatal psychology, guided processes, and hands-on bodywork, this workshop helps you understand how these early imprints created your beliefs, behavioural patterns, and fears, and how they play out in your day-to-day life and relationships.

Understanding the long term effects of the conception, nine months in the womb and birth experience, how this might still affect us today physically, emotionally and psychologically, and how to support human potential from before conception through birth. 

The conception, pregnancy and birth, how this impacted our lives?" It is scientifically proved that cellular memory of conception, pregnancy and birth is a deep imprint and has all the relationships in our lives great influence. Not only the relationship with relatives and friends, but also our health, our work and daily life is determined by these early verbal, emotional and somatic imprint. Usually, we are here completely unaware. This unawareness ensures that the same patterns in our lives keep coming until we gain insight into how the specific circumstances we formed in the period "from egg to me" and still affect upwards. What will be discussed is what kind of prenatal and birth experiences the parents themselves have inherited as a baby and how these imprints may have on pregnancy and birth of their child. Influence In particular, the consciousness about what they have played a very important role. This is as it were the energetic soil from which the physical experience itself germinates and grows.

When everyone who deals with babies and childbirth, personally or professionally, realizes how much of an impact the conception, pregnancy and birth experience has on our physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual lives we can begin to create the necessary changes that will allow for more gentle and conscious births to take place.

New reasons and new ways to prepare the prenatal environment

An overview of the “Primal Health Research Data Bank” will convince anyone that our health is to a great extent shaped in the womb. We have now compiled hundreds of studies detecting correlations between states of health in adulthood, adolescence or childhood and situations when the mother was pregnant. At the very time when such hard data are now available, other scientific disciplines confirm the paramount significance of the prenatal environment. For example, the conventional ways of separating and contrasting genetic and environmental factors in the genesis of states of health, behaviours, and personality traits are obsolete. When contrasting these two groups of factors it was commonplace, until recently, to refer only to the post-birth environment. Today we are in a position to understand that the expression of our genes is to a certain extent influenced by early experiences, particularly during fetal life.

Such an accumulation of data has enormous implications. In terms of public health, it appears that nothing today is more important than the health and well-being of pregnant women. In terms of research, nothing is more important than the study of factors influencing fetal growth and fetal development. From a practical perspective, there are new reasons to prepare the intrauterine environment in an optimal manner.
