Breathing Birth Trauma

At the Family Hope Center we see brain-injured children. This is a pointed story that may happen to you as a CFT professional one day. I was working on a young boy from the Southwest. I was just listening and following the body closely like usual without any force or pressure. His mother was only a few feet from us, watching very closely. At one point she said that he stopped breathing. I had seen that also and immediately said, I know. Many seconds later he started breathing again. His history was that he had a delayed first breath in minutes and was revisiting that time. A similar incidence happened to another FHC therapist with a child in France about 10 years ago. An even larger lesson is that you really need to believe that you are just the co-pilot with the pilot in control.
