PB 5004 Prenatal Parenting

Parenting starts prenatally. Even before conception. The foundations for body-mind health are laid in the primal period. The parental environment that is aware of the blessings and the opportunities that primal life can offer can make a big difference in the life of their children and in society. They also minimize if not cancel altogether the possibility of caesarean birth, postpartum depression, premature babies, complications and unpleasant interventions and they give birth to children who enjoy life, are creative and respectful in relationships.
