Prenatal growth and development is influenced by rich, complex experiences within the womb environment. In this workshop, participants will examine the ways in which the womb is a reflection of a mother’s life experiences and how the prenatal sensory experience lays the foundation for newborn sensory expectations. The six states of consciousness will be introduced as a means for understanding the maturation of the nervous system, as well as significant variables that lay the foundation upon which the complexities of child development begin.
