Our First Breath

The Impact Of Prenatal And Perinatal Factors On Our Breathing Care

with John Wilks
Thursday 26th January
19h Uk Time

In this presentation, John Wilks will look at how physical and psycho-emotional factors can influence how we breathe. How we come into this world has a profound effect on how we relate to our environment.

Birth can have a significant impact on breath, particularly depending on whether we were born prematurely or whether mechanical or pharmacological interventions were used.

John will examine particularly how the vagus nerve is affected by certain kinds of birth, how we can evaluate vagal tone in babies and how the vagus is affected by structural issues (entrapment etc) as well as trauma, gut health and other factors.
