24-10-2023 • 31分

Dr. Greer Kirshenbaum joins us today for a conversation about the neuroscience of nurture parenting and how it's not just best practice for infant development but also for maternal mental health.

Greer Kirshenbaum PhD is an Author, Neuroscientist, Doula, Infant and Family Sleep Specialist, and Mother. Greer has combined her academic training with her experience as a doula and mother to lead The Nurture Revolution. A movement to nurture our babies’ brains to revolutionize mental health and impact larger systems in our world. Her book is called The Nurture Revolution: Grow Your Baby’s Brain and Transform Their Mental Health Through the Art of Nurtured Parenting.

In today's episode, we're sharing:

  • How early life experience influences who we become
  • The biggest myths in modern parenting advice
  • How modern parenting advice is detrimental to maternal well-being.
  • Foundational elements of nurturing in practice.
  • The origins of a parenting style that's far from what is healthy and safe.

Be prepared to be fascinated and inspired by this conversation. We dig deeply into how this style of parenting is undoing generational trauma and revolutionizing what's possible for the mental health of babies and families.
