Pregnancy, birth and early childhood - how do we create the basis for healthy development of the human being?
Presented by the Medical Section at the Goetheanum
The early part of life exerts a defining influence on our health for the rest of our lives. Parents are reliant on support during this early phase in the life of their children; at the same time they are often still uncertain and very open towards suggestions from others.
The CARE I working group of the Medical Section at the Goetheanum has attempted to make a start on working out a position on an interdisciplinary basis across specialisms in the fields of pregnancy support, obstetrics, nursing and neonatology, early intervention, artistic therapies as well as in the educational and medical support of parents and their children.
The task of CARE I is seen as seeking to obtain concrete insights from the perspective of spiritual science to support everyone working in this field. These can then be used to build comprehensible, experience-based concepts for the respective issues and disorders which can be applied in practice. The presentation of these concepts for professionals will be supplemented with formats for communication with expectant mothers and with parents.
This colloquium is intended to present and debate the content which has been developed so far.
This invitation is extended to all foundation years specialists: gynaecologists as well as midwives, neonatologists, paediatricians and general practitioners, nurses and teachers, psychotherapists and therapists, social workers as well as active representatives of parent associations.
