Preparation for childbirth and parenting

A moment of change of life for a woman when often we question our capacities and often sentiments from our own childhood resurface. A preparation during the pregnancy makes these changes to life more serene for the future mother but for the future father also, who often stresses a great deal on the subject of his new responsibilities and the changes to their life.
For women, a serene and peaceful pregnancy deepens the relationship with her body in its changes and knots the relationship with the baby who is developing within. Prepare for a peaceful birth and the management of the labour and birth pains with breathing exercises, visualisations and muscular relaxation. Identify and manage the sources of stress to better live the "weariness" which often follows a birth and the first few months of this new life. Live well the change of life of the couple.

Addictions

People who present a problem of alcohol or substance abuse may also suffer from other disorders attached to anxiety such as agoraphobia, or social phobia, obsessive compulsive disorder or the loss of a close person or separation. These substances are often used at the beginning as a palliative for the sufferance; however the continued use of these substances augments the stress. The drugs or alcohol will undermine the natural defences of the body, encephalin, which is the natural opiate of the body. The use of drugs and alcohol has for effect to reduce the quantity of encephalin produced so therefore augment the amount of substitutes required to reduce the stress.

The training of relaxation and the control of breathing can help one to become more conscious of the reaction of the body in the face of stress and to furnish a range of tools to reduce tension during the weaning process or in the desire in situations of risk of "cracking". These techniques empower self control.

Understand yourself in order to quit the dependence.
Take confidence in your capacity to be quit of the dependence and learn the techniques to better live the weaning process.
