The Magic Baby

Babies are individuals. Whether they cry inconsolably, can´t tolerate to be put down or only feel calm at the breast, they show who they are through their behaviour.

Learn about your baby´s individuality and understand why he might be showing certain behaviours.

MY APPROACH

'There is no such thing as a baby...'
Donald Winnicott

Babies don´t exist without mothers, and others.
Someone to keep them alive, to gaze at them, to love them.


They are always the center of everyone´s attention. Everyone wants to hold the baby.

But who asks for the mother?
Who wants to see mother?

ABOUT ME

_DSF1522_PB_edited_edited.jpg
I Mother the Mother.

My name is Alexandra and I help you to navigate the turbulent waters of parenthood.

This is a space for you to feel empowered to experience your perinatal journey by being informed and honour the power of becoming a mother. 

THE HOLDING MOTHER´S PRINCIPLES

My work is grounded on these beliefs.

Birth matters and impacts the way you experience motherhood.
Babies don´t exist without mothers (and others).
Babies are individuals in their own right and should be seen and respected as such.
Mothers need to be cared for in order to care for their babies.
Matrescence is a vulnerable period for a woman becoming a mother and needs to be acknowledged.
Being a good enough mother is the perfect supply for the parent-infant relationship.
Maternal ambivalence is an intrinsic part of motherhood.
Society should consider the needs and concerns of mothers, babies and families a priority.
