They say the eyes are the window to the soul and I must say I totally agree . After years of helping couples birth their children I am always so blown away when I look into their new baby’s eyes as they first transition to life in this world . I see something deeper then just their eyes I am looking straight into their soul . It gives me chills just writing about it !!!
We all have full access to this magical window where you will see this little being in all their purity , light and depth . When I prep someone for birth I always plant the seed about looking into their baby’s eyes when they are first born . Your baby will be the most awake right after birth for those first few hours then they will be for the weeks that follow . It is in this time that they imprint with us . Looking into their eyes will not only allow you to really “SEE ” them but will also help facilitate the imprinting , intimacy and bonding process .
A little something to think about when you birth your baby ….. skin to skin immediately , looking into your baby’s eyes and talking lovingly to them will help them gently transition into this world with ease.
