Surely, you’ve heard a thousand times that the bond between a mother and her baby is unique, and this special relationship grows stronger through mindful interactions. But guess what else? This special bond can “protect” your child.
Numerous studies confirm it:
- Improves the ability to establish healthy relationships.
- Reduces the risk of academic or learning problems.
- Decreases the likelihood of health issues.
- Lowers the probability of mental problems.
- Helps avoid behavioral issues.
- Reduces the risk of addictions and substance abuse.
That’s why we recommend you strengthen that special connection with your baby starting now! Even if you face challenges and concerns in the next nine months, connecting with your child should be a priority. Some moms feel that connection instantly, while others might take a little longer. Remember that your little one has an incredible emotional and intuitive ability to feel how much they are loved, even while in your belly.
In the next nine months, you and your baby will move, grow, and adapt as if you were one person. If your baby kicks, you might instinctively caress your belly; and if they move, you’ll change positions. You’re more connected than you can imagine! So much so that when you finally hold your baby in your arms, you’ll feel like you’re meeting an old friend.
Every time you relax, enjoy your baby’s presence and think about them, you create an environment of safety and love that your baby feels inside your belly, and it makes them feel cherished and appreciated. Strengthening that bond between you will influence how your baby relates to the world and develops their personality.
