The Baby Brain Score: the Birth Tightness Indicator

The Baby Brain Score (BBS) is essentially an indicator for newborn tightness of the craniosacral fascial system, reflecting the amount of fetal birth trauma. The APGAR Score gets a human into the world alive, and the BBS can significantly determine her/his quality of life.

The brain cycle marks tightness in the head/neck, and the sacral cycle connotes restriction in the pelvic area. The umbilical cord wrap signifies added fascial strain, and a plagiocephalic cranium points to in utero compression. As the score goes from a perfect eight to zero, more craniosacral fascial strain can be expected.

The BBS cannot predict what future condition(s) would present or what condition(s) would be prevented at birth. The BBS revolves around probabilities: a low score has a significantly higher probability of issues than a high score. We hope for the day when all babies have CFT at birth.
