Your first session will be all about your bump! Your emotions and Self care and making time to prepare yourself emotionally for the journey ahead.
The Wise Hippo Prenatal Parenting ProgrammeTM as you can see focussing on building emotional intelligence for baby which may have you wondering what the hell is that then?
In the context of this programme it is about understanding the true purpose of our emotions so that we can use them in a beneficial way rather than letting them control us.
We know from medical research that the things that happen to a woman during her pregnancy will have an impact on her baby and in turn her baby’s emotional intelligence.
However, much of the information that is available on this subject is taken out of context and taught really badly, many women are often left feeling really guilty about the choices they are making when pregnant and I am not talking about smoking or the odd glass of vino.
Your life isn’t going to be perfect throughout your pregnancy and if it isn’t going to be perfect then how are you going to prevent the bad stuff from causing your baby emotional harm?
Things are going to happen that make you feel sad, angry, upset and so on and these things will in turn give your baby a bit of an upset too.
Things are going to happen that make you laugh, feel loved, happy and other great wonderful feelings and these things will in turn make your baby feel great too.
The same goes for after they have been born. Great things will happen and shit things will happen.
What you can do for your baby is teach them the best way to handle the good, the bad and the ugly that life throws at us and this is what The Wise Hippo Prenatal Parenting Programme is predominantly all about.
We do this using ‘The B.E.S.T. start formulaTM which stands for Bonding, Emotions, Self-care and Time with baby.
So as part of every Confident C-section Programme this programme is included to give you the most amazing experience that enables you to feel prepared for every aspect of your journey.
