We find that pre and perinatal experiences have a profound impact on health and human behavior. Life is a continuum which starts not, as is commonly thought, at birth, but at conception. We see mother and child as fundamentally interconnected, and understand that babies are sentient beings who are best nurtured when their mothers are provided with a supportive and healthy prenatal environment in which their choices are respected. A strong and loving pre and perinatal foundation can encourage human bonding and sensitivity to others, with lasting benefits. Womb ecology becomes world ecology as the seeds of peace - or violence - are sown by parents, educators and caregivers.
APPPAH task forces publish a newsletter and journal, hold regional and international conferences, promote research, serve the public with referrals and resources, work to enhance the pregnancy experience and prevent birth trauma, and offer training in methods for healing the psychological wounds of pregnancy and birth.
Membership dues now include four publications: Journal of Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health (a new title), The APPPAH Newsletter, One Hundred Books (and Videos Too) in Prenatal/Perinatal Psychology, and Resource Directory of Practitioners in Pre- and Perinatal Psychology and reduced rates at APPPAH sponsored events.
