The period of conception, pregnancy and childbirth is a nest of information received, interpreted and memorised within the body which can still affect us today.

We carry these memories within us and when they are reactivated by situations resonating with the stress experienced during this first period of life it can cause many imbalances.
From conception, depending on our experience and personality, we set up patterns or even programs (of sabotage) that follow us throughout our life, preventing us from accessing our freewill.

The Objectives of Perinatal Kinesiology®

The objective of perinatal kinesiology is therefore to help us transcend our prenatal decisions by recognising our foetal interpretations/experiences, by deprogramming/rebalancing the stresses experienced in utero or at birth and reconnecting with our Life’s full potential. As an example, the birth experience itself may leave an imprint of lack of commitment, resistance to change, phobia, or be the source of negative thoughts and beliefs.

Sometimes the memory of our soul takes us back to the time of our preconception. This period allows us to reconnect to our life path and why we are here, to the very essence of life.

We (re)discover who we are, we find a new balance that generates greater energy and opens up new life options.

In which situations?

Perinatal Kinesiology® can support:

  • Normal pregnancy : with its joys and sorrows, the need to adapt physically and psychologically, the choices to be made.
  • A challenging history : difficult pregnancy or childbirth, threat of premature childbirth, early contractions, miscarriage, abortion, deceased children, replacement child*, children with complex needs, difficult childbirth, separation at birth, infertility, assisted reproduction, fears (of loss, death, being a bad mother, childbirth, pain), resistance over the sex of the baby, refusal/difficulty of the foetus to live/grow/participate/be born, the premature loss of a twin in utero (“vanishing twin”) **, family history...
  • Foetal memories : this section concerns each of us, since we are all former foetuses. What the mother experiences is also experienced by the foetus, but each with their own feelings, emotions and thoughts. Perinatal kinesiology makes it possible to identify events that have not been well interpreted, integrated and experienced.

*The difficulty of being a replacement child, that is to say of having been conceived (often unconsciously) to replace a deceased child or a parent.

**The premature loss of a twin: awareness of the other is very early, even if the loss occurred in the first days of pregnancy. It can leave a void, sadness, worry, anger or guilt that could impact the pregnancy itself or affect the person throughout their life.

The Origin of Perinatal Kinesiology®

Perinatal Kinesiology® was created by Annick Boittiaux, a midwife and kinesiologist. Annick worked in a large Parisian hospital setting, which gave her a solid understanding of what pregnant women and newborns experience, and particularly how the baby can suffer from a challenging environment or the behaviour of the family.

At the same time, her personal journey opened her up to new methods. Annick came to realise that this period of birth contains a wealth of information received and memorised, but that classical kinesiology with its established tools seemed unsuitable in view of the complexity and richness of the phenomena at play.
