FEATURED ARTICLE: “The First 1000 Minutes” by Mary Esther Malloy

Dr. Nils Bergman spoke at NYU on the neuroscience of skin-to-skin and breastfeeding. This talk may change your understanding of the first 1000 minutes after birth, and beyond.

FEATURED BOOK: Mindful Birthing by Nancy Bardacke, CNM

Midwife Nancy Bardacke has written a beautiful book. She is the founder of Mindfulness-based Childbirth and Parenting, a ground-breaking program for pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. Drawing on research in neuroscience, mindfulness meditation, and integrative medicine, this book offers practical tools to help families find calm and ease at this extraordinary life transition, providing skills for healthy living and wise parenting.  Highly recommended!
