Adopting good postures during pregnancy and after pregnancy is fundamental in preserving the good condition of the cranial-sacral system of the yet born baby. We will be talking about correct sitting posture at office and also good positions for sleeping. This topic will include various good postures in day-to-day activities, posture for preventing low back stress and also exercises that can help relieving back pain. 

 

Even with the best intentions babies can experience discomfort, sleep problems, crying, tensions in their stomach, minor difficulties in breastfeeding or other signs may be due to tensions present in the cranial-sacral system of the baby. By being aware and having some information on this system, we will be able to better understand how our littles ones are placed. The complaints described could be very simply avoided with a little care that can go a long way in making the beginning of our new born's life even better.

Maternal mental and emotional health: Let’s talk about it!

Maternal mental health problems, commonly referred to as ‘post partum depression’, are widespread and have both short and long term consequence to the mother and child. They comprise a wide spectrum of issues - depression, anxiety, phobias – and can start in pregnancy or anytime in the first year after the baby is born. Unfortunately, maternal mental health issues and concerns are often neglected and forgotten in reference to that of the infant/child. 

In celebrating World Breast Feeding week this year (1st to 7th Aug 2014), NIMHANS, The Bangalore Birth Network and WellMom by Healthy Mother would like to bring to the fore the critical need to discuss, share and speak aloud a genuine concern.
