Show Notes

In this episode of ‘Mothering from Within,’ I chat all about babies’ tears and crying. 

I talk about understanding crying not just as a means for babies to express immediate needs but as a deeper form of communication, including ‘memory crying’ linked to pre and perinatal experiences. 

I discuss how responding to crying with empathy and support can foster emotional regulation and resilience in children, laying a foundation for their emotional development. 

I highlight the personal journey parents can undertake to become more comfortable with their child’s tears, exploring their own emotional triggers and childhood experiences around crying.
