You have a built-in baby care system of knowledge called your parental instincts. Here at Mara’s World we believe in the wisdom of these instincts, and encourage you to do what feels best for your baby. That being said, there are also professional fields that have developed a wealth of knowledge about babies: perinatal psychology, childhood development, family studies, behavioral geneticists, natural and allopathic medicine, and more. Helpful information, based on evidence rather than opinion, can be an enormous help as you navigate new parenting. We hope these articles and our consulting services will help you turn inward when your gut feelings are your most reliable guide, outward when advice is useful… and to become skillful in the dance between the two.
