OT + Pre and Perinatal Psychology - Donna is Interviewed by Women's Health O.T.
I had the amazing pleasure of being interviewed by Heather Truog, OTD, OTR/LPYT of The Women's Health O.T. I shared knowledge and personal insights into how this area of practice blends with occupational therapy in women’s health.
For those who are new to this area of practice, what exactly is Pre and Perinatal Psychology?
Pre and Perinatal Psychology is the field of study that focuses on one’s earliest experiences from preconception, development in the womb, the birth process, and the first postnatal year. It looks at how these first experiences influence one’s ability to survive or thrive in life as a whole Being.
Pre and Perinatal Psychology incorporates research and clinical experiences from leading-edge fields such as epigenetics, biodynamic embryology, infant mental health and attachment, early trauma, developmental neurosciences, and consciousness studies.
