If I Were Entering the World Now

If I were entering the world today, perfection would look like this:

I definitely want my mother to have had CFT before she got pregnant with me. I want her uterus and other abdominal structures loose so I can grow with minimal pressure against me. I want her to have a great brain cycle so that her pituitary birth hormones have the best chance to work well.

If possible, I want a vaginal delivery with its many benefits. If via C-section, I still may need to release in-utero emotional and physical trauma(s). I want CFT for my mom, too, before she goes home.

Please wait to cut the umbilical cord until I have an optimal amount of blood from the placenta to start my life. Please do the one- and five-minute APGAR scores to get me into the world alive.

For quality-of-life issues, I want the Baby Brain Score (BBS) and CFT done next. I know that other newborns may bond with mom first, but I want immediate CFT to help release nine months of pent-up emotional and physical trauma(s).

Birth presents a unique window of opportunity for me to release my fresh craniosacral fascial strains. In the medical profession, the golden hour states that if my trauma(s) are treated in that first hour or as soon as possible, I will have the best outcome. I want that badly.

I want CFT now because my cranial bones are soft like milk cartons; the smooth edges allow them to easily shift and realign. My dural meninges, the connective tissue covering and possibly compressing my brain and spinal cord, loosen well with CFT. I want my nervous system working well now so I can be healthy and smart when I grow up.

Since I am still transitioning from in-utero life to the atmospheric world, I will probably have minimal CFT drama. My first instinct is to free up my body after 40 weeks of confinement. I just want that first big stretch to unwind myself as soon as possible; my neck and back are stiff. Thank you, CFT provider, for helping me.

After my first CFT session, please let me rest for a minute. If I do start screaming, not to worry family. I am just releasing my emotional and physical trauma(s) so I do not have to carry them my whole life. Who knows, I may end up a less-rebellious teenager.

Please continue CFT for as long as my body is “talking.” When I am finally quiet, please let me process and bond with my mom for an hour. Thereafter, please check me every hour. If I am still stretching, I have more strain to release. If not, please let me rest and process. I want as much CFT as possible in those first 24 to 48 hospital hours to be as healthy as possible and minimize future office CFT visits.

If everyone is going to let me sit with these craniosacral fascial strains, my body will compensate and adapt over time. I am probably going to have alimentary tract issues like breastfeeding difficulty, colic, reflux, gas, constipation, etc. As a fussy infant or toddler, I am going to be more vocal with CFT. No one wants that outcome.

I want these conditions prevented now so my family can enjoy my company in the hospital. When mom and I leave, I want the most important gift of all: For my family to take home a happy baby.
