Last week on Saturday 8th August, I was given the fantastic opportunity to share a short routine with all the Mums in the amazing MIB Community.
The empowerment network for Mums/Women in Business with over 60k members, founded by Leona Burton.
This was such a pleasure because this community are mums who are heroes at raising their children and providing for their families, whilst running their own businesses.
This can be TOUGH so I took the opportunity to show them a short a routine that would help assist them improve their child's SLEEP, ANXIETY, BEHAVIOUR and CONNECTION.
I am delighted at the kind responses from mums who NEEDED to see this and SO GRATEFUL that they could try something new to help them! Some mums said:
'Wow this was amazing to watch and learn how to do this to my sons they both have autism and suffer with anxiety I'm sure this would help them relax.'
'You are officially my hero what an awesome thing to post.'
YOU knew when they landed on your chest they needed your touch.
YOU knew it would be your hands to stroke, soothe and help them to feel calm and safe.
YOU knew it would be your arms to cuddle and squeeze them when they needed to feel secure and supported.
YOU knew it would be your heartbeat they would feel when laying on your chest, the vibration they needed to feel connected.
YOU knew your physical bond was ESSENTIAL to your baby's SURVIVAL.
YOU did not need to be told this.
YOUR BODY knew what it needed to do.
YOUR BODY always knows what your child needs...
YOU have always been responding to your child's emotional and physical needs from your own natural internal instincts.
YOU were the one to feel the intensity of their cries when your body was responding with an increasing heartrate and shock when woken multiple times in the night.
A parent and child connection is a bond that is instinctive.
YOUR reactions are based on theirs.
