Benefits and Research of Prenatal Bonding(BA)

Table 1: 12 Common Results of Prenatal Bonding (BA)
• The mother’s inner perceptions are well attuned to her pregnancy and the unborn. She has access to her own as well as to her baby’s wisdom.
• Her natural female capabilities are empowered by Prenatal Bonding (BA) and create greater assertiveness and security during childbirth.
• Mother and baby become a good team experiencing less anxiety and pain.
• There are less efforts in giving birth and fewer complications.
• The requirement for obstetrical interventions goes down significantly.
• Caesarean sections are decreased substantially by Prenatal Bonding (BA), and natural vaginal birth is usual. Thus, birth is safer and less costly.
• Pregnancies facilitated by Raffai, preterm birth rates were less than 0.2 percent – as compared to an average of 9.2% in Germany and 12% in the USA. The general experience tells us that the majority of babies after Prenatal Bonding (BA) are born within 1 week around the due date, without any medical intervention.
• Birth trauma is of low degree as indicated by natural, round-shaped heads and little crying after birth; excessive infant crying is unknown after Prenatal Bonding (BA).
• The babies are curious about the world, emotionally stable, and socially mature and have an easy access to their personal potential.
• There is less sleeping during daytime, but longer and deeper sleep at night, with few
awake-nings, so parents suffer less from sleeping disorders.
• Babies and children are easy to communicate, and dealing with them becomes
completely intuitive. Babies have a lot of self-awareness and self-esteem. They are patient and under- standing of their parent’s intentions and needs, as well as their own.
• Postpartum depression is expected to become a thing of the past, as in the sample of over 8000 pregnancies facilitated by Raffai and his colleagues worldwide less than 1% postpartum depression was reported. On average about 19% of mothers experience postpartum depression for several months after birth (Schroth 2015).
