Bonding during pregnancy

Posted by One Heart Midwifery on November 12, 2010 at 1:42 AM

Even unborn babies need to feel our love. Take a moment several times a day to stop and connect to your baby. Feel yourself come down from floating above your body, managing your day. Feel the floor connect to your feet and let it remind to to breathe deep and slow down. Close your eyes and imagine your baby inside your tummy. Say hello. Tell your baby how much you love and want him or her and treasure these moments where you share one body. Little ones thrive on connection and now, during your pregnancy is the best time to start those deep bonds of love! Explain this importance to your partner and let them take time to share in some belly love and speak words of encouragment and care to your unborn baby. Doesn't that feel wonderful?!

Thank you for this post! I am researching midwives right now, feeling enormously overwhelmed by this surprise 5th baby on the way at a rather inconvenient time and this is exactly the reminder I needed to stop being so focused on all the to-dos and the stresses of trying to figure out where to have this baby (moving to a new state 2 months before baby's due) and how he/she will fit in with our family that I thought was rather complete. As of now, I am moving my focus away from stress and worry, and towards loving, caring for, and getting to know this new child. The rest will work itself out.
