Our 32yr. old son was born using Dr. Leboyer's method. Sadly, in all these years I have never met another family that used this method. It was the most awesome experience and our son has always been healthy, and even tempered. Now I am a grandmother-to-be and I can only pray that our grandbaby will have the same wonderful birthing experience!!
This book changed my life. The BEST THING I EVER DID FOR MY CHILDREN was follow Dr. Leboyer's method and make my daughters first moments of life moments of peace, love & respect. Peace by darkening the room and requiring all present to whisper so that their eyes and ears could slowly acclimate from the darkness and quietness of the womb to the boldness of life. Welcoming them with love and respect for their fragile little lives by treating them with the utmost gentleness and warmth. Birth overwhelmes ALL the senses of an infant. Light were there was dark, sharp, chaotic noise where there was muted sounds, burning oxygen in the lungs where there was warm fluid, coarse fabrics and touch where there was a warm pool of fluid, consciousness where there was serenity. Children learn soon enough the harshness of this world, making the first moments they experience welcoming helps them develop confidence to face challenges w/an abiding sense of peace. I know this sounds really far out. . .but it's not. I've seen the huge difference these births make in the lives of children!
