Nurturing the pregnant person, partner and family
profoundly nurtures the baby's developing brain
and sets the stage for lifelong health for the entire family.
Lifelong health starts in the womb, when the brain and body first begin to develop. Neuroscience, and specifically a speciality called fetal origins, shows us that the environment during pregnancy contributes to lifelong mental and physical health.
We teach and support families to create brain healthy environments, relationships and practices in pregnancy, where the family and the infant will thrive.
Families continue to be enriched by our brain health education throughout pregnancy, birth, infancy and far beyond.
Infant learning also starts in the womb. We teach families how to nurture and enrich the developing brain at specific times throughout pregnancy.
