Chamberlain, David B. PhD, Pre- and Peri-natal Psychology Journal


Dear Editor,

At the end of October, I returned from a two-week speaking/teaching tour of Norway and Denmark, encouraged not only by their warm interest in prenatal psychology but by their enlightened birth practices.

Under the general theme, "The Prenatal Time: Our First Learning Environment," my sponsors arranged for me to address general audiences, do four-hour seminars for midwives, and eight-hour workshops for therapists on "The Treatment of Prenatal and Perinatal Trauma"-about five events in each country.

I went to Oslo and Trondheim on the invitation of Forening for Oppdragelse for Fodselen (FOF), the Norwegian branch of a group inspired by Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov (Education Begins Before Birth, 1982).

In terms of attendance at meetings, midwives were in the majority, arranging for seminars in their hospital lecture auditoriums in Oslo, Trondheim, and Copenhagen. In Norway, a number of people came for private consultations, including the editor of a midwifery journal who wanted to experience birth recall; she will write about her experience in the next issue of their Journal.

My sponsor in Denmark was Bodynamics Institute, Copenhagen, led by Lizbeth Marcher and Eric Jarlnes who have spoken at several APPPAH congresses and offer on-going training in their method of bodywork in the U.S. They were responsible for publishing the Danish version of my book, Babies Remember Birth (1988).

In addition to arranging for me to speak to the Parents & Birth organization (a very influential group in Denmark) and to do a workshop for therapists, they were able to win the cooperation of the School of Midwifery (Danmarks Jordemoderskole) in Copenhagen for an official three-hour seminar where I was introduced by the head of the School. Following this, I was interviewed on camera for a video about babies which the hospital is preparing for parents.

Another highlight of my Copenhagen visit was the invitation extended by the Chief Midwife of University Hospital (Rigshospitalet, the largest in Denmark) to give a two-hour lecture at the hospital, visit the maternity floor, and tour the NICU. …
