Compassionate Understanding of the Baby’s Journey

Previously titled: Ask KT: Exploring Psychological Imprints of the Birth Journey

We’re thrilled to announce that our beloved course formerly known as “Ask KT: Exploring Psychological Imprints of the Birth Journey” has undergone a transformation and is now named “Compassionate Understanding of the Baby’s Journey.”

 In this newly renamed course, we continue our journey into the depths of birth psychology, offering a year-long exploration of pertinent topics essential for practitioners like you. Each month, we delve into 12 unique discussions, shedding light on the psychological and emotional ramifications of the various stages experienced before, during, and after birth.

“Compassionate Understanding of the Baby’s Journey” is designed to provide practitioners with invaluable insights into prenatal and perinatal sciences, offering a holistic understanding of birth from the baby’s perspective. Throughout the course, we’ll reflect on the relevance of these insights in our work with clients and in our personal lives. 

Join us for a year-long journey into pertinent topics in birth psychology. This series is for practitioners and will provide 12 unique topics of discussion that will share vital information regarding the psychological and emotional consequences from the various stages that all human beings experience before, during, and after birth. Anyone who completes the series will possess a foundational understanding of the prenatal and perinatal sciences.

We will examine all the stages of birth from the baby’s point of view, and reflect upon the relevance of these stages in the context of our clients, and in our own lives. Their validity and usefulness as a primer for those in the baby treatment field are unmatched. William Emerson and Franklin Sills pioneered the stages of birth according to the somatic relationships between the baby’s cranium and the maternal pelvis, and the accompanying psychological themes.

The related emotional and psychological components that accompany physiological themes have formed the primary foundation of prenatal and perinatal consciousness, psychology, and therapy.

This course is geared specifically to Practitioners such as:

  • Birth Professionals
  • Mental Health Professionals
  • Body and Somatic Professionals
  • anyone who works with babies or someone who used to be a baby

    Karlton Terry 

    Karlton is one of the world’s leading baby therapists and instructors. His courses are now being taught across Europe, Australia and the US where he supervises and continues to influence some of the preeminent baby therapists of this generation. Now he wants to share the gifts of Accurate Empathy, Baby Body Language, Somato-magnetism, and the Birth Mask Reveal (BMR) with practitioners and parents in the Americas. A “birth mask” is what we see in the face of a baby, especially a newborn, or in the features formed by birth that are still apparent in an adult face. It is always called a birth mask, no matter what the age, because the causative dynamics were compression and drag forces from birth. The mask-making outcome of cranial and facial molding, when properly and empathically studied, reveals a person’s birth story, and shines a bright light on how birth, such as any intense experience, shapes and molds one’s nature and character.
