The mother and baby’s bond develops before birth and when they meet for the first time a powerful range of emotions are felt. There are moments where feelings of anxiety and fear can dominate the experience. It is a time of great change, filled with new experiences, all of which are very emotionally challenging. This is a period where support is vital for both mother and child.


There is no mother and baby relationship the same, the experience is unique to the bond which forms


Your emotions are individual to you, there is no right or wrong way to feel. During the time after birth and beyond, emotions are intensified with the possibility of past conflicts and unprocessed issues returning. Life Studio offers a safe place for mother and child to build their relationship, providing emotional and confidential support for the mother, when she needs it the most, allowing the bonding process to develop naturally.

Psychotherapy is a way of supporting mothers who are struggling emotionally within a professional and understanding holding environment. Helping mother, and in turn, baby, process complex emotions encourages the relationship to build and strengthen.
