Generational Family Health: Understanding Pre/Perinatal Wellbeing From The Seven Generational Approach [Episode #19]
In most Indigenous traditions we have some understanding of the Seven Generations. This concept has multiple applications, but one of those perspectives is the impact on the health and well being in relation to pregnancy and the health of the expectant mother and her baby. In this webinar we will discuss this concept in relation to where prenatal health actually begins, and how it applies to understanding the long term impacts of health and well being of the child and the future generations.
