Miserable Baby Part 2 – 22nd March 2020  BOOK COURSE


The Miserable Baby PART TWO
Treating shock, trauma & birth interventions in the newborn & baby


Following on from our popular workshop ‘The Miserable Baby PART ONE – treating feeding and digestive disorders, this workshop explores the effects of birth interventions and the treatment of Shock & First Breath Syndrome in the newborn. We further consider the lower gastro-intestinal tract, pelvic mechanics & other common factors of early life causing miserable & unsettled behaviour.

As with all our courses, emphasis is on treatment, practical management and advice rather than in depth anatomy & physiology which participants can study at their leisure. 

Topics covered:

  • First Breath Syndrome & Shock in the newborn.
  • Effects of traumatic birth eg. forceps, vacuum extraction, caesarian section & how to treat these.
  • Exploration of the use of CV4 and EV4 stillpoint techniques in babies & infants.

Sadly we can’t use babies as models! However we will make good use of dolls and each other to practise techniques so please wear loose and comfortable clothing. Full notes, including photos of techniques, will be supplied during the lecture.
A CPD certificate will be available at the end of the day.

This in an Intermediate Level workshop. To get the most out of this course you should:
  • Be able to take a Paediatric case history and understand your legal & professional requirements for treating infants.
  • Understand the basic physiological processes of birth and how this may effect cranial mechanics.
  • Have a basic understanding of the Cranio-sacral approach (Sutherland, Upledger etc.) as some techniques require palpation of the Involuntary Mechanism.
