You don’t have to wait until your baby is in your arms physically to begin attaching and bonding.
In fact… how much closer can you get than being inside of someone?! Let’s emulate that close physical proximity with mental and emotional proximity, too!
This weekend we’re running a challenge! #chorionicconnection
We’re going to set aside a little bit of time each day for the next 3 days to intentionally connect with our babies.
Day 1: spend time thinking about what it will be like to work with your baby during labor. How will the two of you work together? What will that look like?
Day 2: Focus on what the newborn connection will be like. Joyfully imagine the new baby snuggles, smelling that precious little head, nursing and changing diapers. Let your baby know that you’re a safe place and you’re going to take care of them.
Day 3: let’s visualize this connection 5-10 years down the road. What will this beautiful love look like then? Imagine your baby, now a child, and imagine you helping them solve some type of problem. Let them know that this isn’t a short term relationship- you’ll be bonded and connected for life.
