Családot szeretnél? Érdekel a magzatod fejlődése? Nem érted az orvosi szakkifejezéseket? Tudni szeretnéd milyen támogatásokra vagy jogosult és milyen jogaid vannak?

Anya – magzat kommunikáció
 
Lecturer: Karner Beatrix, perinatális szaktanácsadó
 
Place: Subotica, Foundation of Mental Hygiene Exspecto, Santiceva 27
 
Date: 5th May 2014 at 5:00 pm
 
Az elmúlt évtizedekben fontos szerepet kapott a méhen belüli élet mélyebb megértése. Előtérbe került a magzatot érő anyai hatások szerepének feltárása. Az anya és magzata között zajló többszintű, aktív és kölcsönös kommunikáció erősíti kötődést. Az anya-magzat kommunikáció már a várandósság alatt segíti az ismerkedést, az egymásra hangolódást. Természetesen a magzattal zajló kommunikáció szerves része a leendő apa is. A kommunikáció mennyisége és minősége megalapozhatja a gyermekkel való későbbi kapcsolatot, a szülővé válást, a szülői szerep elfogadását.

Minden 10. nőt érinti, mégsem tudunk róla. Az endometriózis krónikus alhasi fájdalmakat, vérzési rendellenességet, akár teljes meddőséget okozó betegség. Kiket érint, miért, és hogyan kezelhető? Erről beszél Árvai Nóra krónikus női betegeket segítő pszichológus, szomatoterapeuta, szakíró, perinatális szaktanácsadó.  www.endoblog.hu

Mit tehetünk most mi felnőttek  annak érdekében, hogy a ránk bízott gyerekek majd tudatos, jól informált és kompetens szülőkké váljanak?
 
A beszélgetés során arra keresünk választ, hogy miként oldódhatnak saját gátlásaink – ha vannak – a szexualitás és a szülés-születés témája kapcsán, és hogyan lehetünk a gyermekeink valódi, hiteles és kompetens segítő partnerei abban, hogy zökkenőmentesen, szexuális zavarok nélkül nőjenek fel. Hogyan érhető el, hogy a mai gyerekek, fiatalok már óvódás koruktól készüljenek az anyává és apává válásra és az élet természetes körforgásának tudatosan, felkészülten, ugyanakkor könnyed örömmel lehessenek részesei. Hiszem, hogy az így született és nevelkedett gyerekek már nem a lelki problémákkal küzdő felnőttek számát fogják gyarapítani, hanem egy derűsebb és békésebb egyéni, családi és közösségi létezés alapjait teremtik meg.

Lecturers: Góbor Szénási Anna, hordozási tanácsadó (Beli Buba Babahordozó Iskola) 
Place: Subotica, Foundation of Mental Hygiene Exspecto, Santiceva 27
Date 9th May, 2014 6:00 pm
 
Azt tudjuk, hogy a babák egy éves koruk körül kezdenek el járni. De hogy "közlekednek" előtte? Úgy, hogy visszük, cipeljük őket. Ki kézben, ki hordozókendőben, ki karikás kendőben, ki kengurúban, ki csatos hordozóban. Melyik az, ami legjobban megfelel a babának? Milyen érzés, ha testközelben van a babánk, a két kezünk pedig szabad? 
 
A találkozás lehetőséget ad a kisbabás/kisgyermekes anyáknak, apáknak, hogy kipróbálják a hordozókendő használatát, miközben gazdag információt kaphatnak az ortopédiai szempontokat figyelembe vevő helyes, folyamatos testkontaktust biztosító hordozás babára illetve szülőre gyakorolt jótékony hatásáról.
 
Doula- professional support at childbirth
 
Lecturer: Mirjana Gnjatic, Doula
 
City: Subotica, Foundation of Mental Hygiene "Exspecto", Santiceva 27
 
Time: 5th May 2014 10:00 pm
 
Woman's strength is not confirmed by giving birth alone, as is now trend in our country. Being scared, lonely, lying exclusively on her back, her only remaining hope is that she will have luck with doctors and that everything will go well. For centuries, women were there for women and why this suddenly has to be different? Why not acknowledge a woman's fundamental right to choose where and with whom she wants to give birth? Because modern research confirms many benefits from the presence of professional support at childbirth: delivery of shorter duration, reduced number of interventions , reduced need for induction, epidural and cesarean section, women are more successful in breastfeeding and feelings related to childbirth are more positive. Doulas already exist in Serbia, so why not enable every woman who wants to have support in childbirth to have it?
 
 
VBAC with examples of good practice!
 
Lecturer: Andrea Meljkuti, human kinesiology master, ICAN President in Hungary
 
City: Subotica, Foundation of Mental Hygiene Exspecto, Santiceva 27
 
Time: 5th May, 2014 11:00 am
 
VBAC is abbreviation of the term "Vaginal birth after caesarean," or what we in Serbian say: "Vaginal birth after cesarean section." Today is wide-established stance or more precisely the wrong belief, that after one caesarean section in subsequent pregnancies caesarean is inevitable.
 
However, the fact is that VBAC is just one of the possibilities for every pregnant woman who has already had a cesarean section, whether she has had one or more caesarean section in past!
 
In the end, there will time for discussion and questions.
