The experience of life and how life is perceived begins in the womb. In utero, a growing baby absorbs its mother’s feelings and emotional responses which influences its developing attachment relationship to mum. Inside the womb, a baby is already learning whether the world is either a safe or an unsafe place to be. Babies have what’s known as implicit memory. This is memory that isn’t within consciousness, and indeed we generally have no memory of our birth and preverbal years, but which can be accessed later in life through the felt-sense in our bodies. Therefore if a baby is handled roughly at birth it creates an imprint, an implicit memory, that the world isn’t safe and which then influences a whole range of fear-based beliefs throughout life. In fact any issues that happen in utero, during and immediately after birth, and during the hours and days after being born may be precursor, the root cause of mental (inc. negative beliefs), emotional and physical issues later in life.
Through working with the sub/unconscious mind and metaphor, Matrix Birth Reimprinting (utilising EFT) gently releases pregnancy and birth related stress and trauma bringing relief to present day symptoms and unhelpful beliefs even if there is no specific information about the actual events from pregnancy, birth and neonatal time.
Matrix Birth Reimprinting is helpful for the following, for both women and men, whether their own experience or their child’s:
- Infertility issues
- Antenatal depression
- Issues during pregnancy (including issues with partner and wider family/friends, bereavement)
- Birth complications
- Birth trauma
- Post natal depression
- Loss of a child
- Loss of mother at birth
- Abandonment at birth
- Lack of bonding and attachment
- Loss of parent, bereavement after birth
Matrix Birth Reimprinting is also very helpful during pregnancy and as part of preparing for a gentle and optimum birth experience. It can also be used to enhance an already positive birth experience and deepen bonding and attachment to parent or child.
