Can You Bond With Your Baby Early?

By: Care Messer | Bonding with Baby, Podcast, Pregnancy | March 7, 2024

This show is all about PRE bonding with your baby. Yes – it is possible! And bonding has many different faces – it’s not all about rubbing your belly and talking to baby(although yes, I want you to do that too).

Today Ashley and I discuss the importance of intentionally bonding with your baby during pregnancy by fostering a nurturing family environment. Have you had conversations with your partner about establishing family traditions? Have you had open communication about parenting techniques, and creating a warm, loving, and secure home? This is where the bonding extends because you are making your baby a real person in this conversation, and creating THEIR long-term family.

Ashley and I also share personal experiences as they came up that have impacted our kids. I am far from perfect in this arena and I wish I would have thought things through a bit more. Once again, I am impressed with Ashley being so intentional as a young 25 year old mom, where I was in my 30’s and that stuff didn’t even register for me. The episode highlights the value of intentional bonding before birth and the role of envisioning a positive future for your family.

The Hypnobirthing meditation we referenced in today’s show is available on my website and is called, “Baby in Nature.”

All of our meditations have been recorded in the specific wording you need – the Motherhood collection, the Inclusive language collection, and language for multiples. The journal “Conversations With My Baby,” can be found on Amazon with this link.
