Why a Baby Needs to Learn Balance and Counterbalance - Super Baby Secret #8

What does it mean when I say, "It's important for you baby to learn how to move?"

Many babies learn movement naturally, but when a baby's movements are restricted due to too much swaddling,  too much car seat time, etc.; or due to premature delivery, NICU time, or a child's condition or disease.

The baby misses out on important, natural, movement experiences that aren't even on the milestone charts used by Doctors and Pediatricians. 

These natural movement experiences are crucial for your child experiencing the most natural development they are capable of, typical or atypical. 

 

In a baby, there is no such thing as a bad movement.

So the question is, why is your baby moving like he or she is? 

How do you know if your baby's movements are natural or telling you that you need to be concerned? 

That's where Movement Lesson™ comes in.

You can know from day one if you need to be really concerned, moderately concerned, or mildly concerned...

Is Crying Good For Baby's Lungs? - Is It Good for Babies to Cry?

Super Baby Secret #6: Every Super Baby needs a healthy, strong cry.

 

Super Baby Secret #7: "Crying is a Babys' Language for Needs, Hunger, Sleep, and Comfort"

 

Crying in Babies 

"The human body uses all forms of kinetic energy in rotation or in/out organization."
 
"The sudden thrust of gravity and intake of oxygen is equal by the release of gases immediately upon birth.
 
"One of the most obvious examples of this in neonate’s processes is the act of crying.
 
 
"The assumption that the initial organization of sound is for the communication of hunger, sleep, and soiling creates a false security of infant intelligence that is not capable of a response.
 
"Just the act of exhibiting various levels of sound is a crucial indicator of movement for action in later life as seen in power spectrum density curve using Welch’s method, which is used for calculating the power of a signal-like sound at varying frequencies [16].

Home Exercises I Can Do for Special Needs - Alternative Solutions To or With Your Current Therapy

This is What Can Happen with Consistent and Daily practice of Movement Lesson in Your Home.

 
 
Up until a month ago, to help my daughter be upright and "walking"‍, it required someone to hold her and crouch over while she moved her legs in a walking motion.
 
Life started out pretty rough for her, and bandaids and syringes were her play toys because they were light enough for her to pick up, hold, and play with.
 

 

Movement Lesson™ Offers Hope for Your Child's Progress and Development

This is something I never expected to see.

I knew that because of Movement Lesson, her body had the movement input of walking. 

 

Here is a video of her first time in the walker and playing the piano on her own. 

 

It's been 4 years since I started ML with my daughter.
 
When she got in this walker and took off like she had been doing it all of her life, and because of Movement Lesson she had been.

Typical vs Atypical Child Development

 
 
 

From the first few days of life, you can identify where a child does and does not cross midline.

 
When a child lacks midline crossing, it will cause delays in milestone achievement or stop milestone development.
 
From the first few days of life, you can completely change your child's future with the Movement Lesson™ Midline Evaluation and the Newborn Movement Assessment.
 
Often parents find me when their child is 5 to 6 months old and the child is not rolling over.
 
While genetic, trauma and bone structure can prevent this milestone, more often than not, the reason why the child can't rollover is that the child can't cross midline in all midline points of the body.
 
 

Movement Lesson™ is the only alternative solution that teaches parents how to recognize, evaluate, and initiate midline crossing in all parts of the body.

 
These points include the head, chest, spine, shoulder, elbows, hands,...

How to Help Your Uterus Recover After Pregnancy

uterus recovery Nov 19, 2021

One of my specialties is uterus integration.

 
Many surgeons incorrectly sew the uterus forward, to the belly, versus allowing it to shrink back towards the spine and back pelvis.
 
Complications that can arise from an incorrect restructuring leads to a higher level of postpartum depression and serious postpartum fatigue.
 
Not to mention the inability to have a natural birth from this point forward.
 
Knowing how your stomach wall and pelvic floor are structured prior to delivery and discussing this with your surgeon is very important.
 
It can change the way you move for the rest of your life.
