#032 The first eight weeks

ACEs and timing

We're talking about the impact of the first 8 weeks of a baby's life today, and how important they are for our lives as adults. Hanna brings us an excerpt from "What Happened to You" by Oprah Winfrey & Bruce D. Perry, MD, PhD. We learn about how secure connection and a safe, stable environment for just eight weeks when a baby is born gives us a huge leg up in dealing with adverse childhood experiences. Babies may not 'remember' that time, but it's still so crucial!

All moms are obsessed with their babies and hate to leave them for even a second, right?? Turns out, no. Megan shares her experience navigating the gap between the narrative around being a mom and her experience of motherhood.

Learning to understand each other.

Relationships are complicated and beautiful and take work as they evolve and change. This week, we go over some of what came up while discussing grandparenting, namely meta communication! How do we talk about how we communicate and what we mean by the words we choose. What do our choices communicate to others and how can we navigate parenting around the people close to us when it feels like we’re speaking different languages?
