Baby smiles while looking away - Gillespie Approach–craniosacral fascial therapy

The New Global Standard of Newborn Care: Part 1

We are the happy baby people. Our goal is for every one of the billions of unborn babies to breathe, nurse, digest, poop, and nap well by the second day of his/her life. These are our five essential “vital signs” for quality of life issues in our happy baby model. In the real world a first-time mother may fully expect to go home with a baby who will do all of these functions well, especially with years of healthy living and her medically uneventful pregnancy, labor, and delivery.

She may even feel she has a natural right to have a happy baby. In her mind, “I thought about this for years, I researched everything online, I spoke to my friends, I made wise decisions, I was careful during the pregnancy, I went to a respected hospital/center, I chose the best birthing people, and I experienced great care. I may have even had a c-section so that my baby would experience less trauma. I did everything right and now I have a baby who has difficulty nursing, trouble napping, and cries a lot. What did I do wrong?”

You did nothing wrong. Your baby was just born with naturally occurring soft tissue strain from birth trauma. The problem is that no one noticed.

Over time your baby is telling you that s(he) is not comfortable in her/his own skin and is constantly letting you know the only way that she can. If your baby could talk, she would tell you all about it. We understand that. Our purpose is to present an effective solution where smiles would prevail.

In our minds professionals would have checked, treated, and corrected your baby’s potential problem(s) directly at birth. We believe that therapy at that golden hour to mitigate any strains in your newborn’s body could have prevented what you are going through now.

Our mission is to teach hospital staffs how to do the work at birth so that your experience is not repeated millions of times over. This is our message to the world.
