Prenatal Sciences?

During the last third of the 20th century, a new interdisciplinary science – Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Medicine began to develop. It has united psychologists, psychotherapists, psychoanalysts, and other specialists, who have discovered that, quite often, psychological trauma is programmed into people even before birth. Maternal stress during pregnancy and labor, as well as her personal attitude towards the child (love or rejection, wanted or unwanted pregnancy/ child) remain in his/ her memory, and then, after birth, these diminishing patterns define violent thinking and style of behavior. In combination with genetic memory, the prenatal experience becomes a background template, on which, after birth, the personality is formed (Brekhman, G., Freybergh, P.F., 2021)

As Peter Fedor Freyburgh said, “It is an interdisciplinary scientific field… the practice of which attempts to integrate different disciplines with the basic questions of life and its challenges. Emphasis is placed on the interdisciplinary character, which enables different scientific specialties such as medicine, psychology, psychoanalysis, anthropology, human ethology, sociology, philosophy and others to meet (for) … a mutually creative interaction or cross fertilization (P.F. Freybergh, 2021)

Based on this understanding, some years ago, Olga Gouni introduced the term “Prenatal Sciences” to further build on the inter/ transdisciplinarity of this work.

Actually, there is hardly any scientific field that does not refer to or study the beginnings of life. From Astrophysics to Embryology, people have always been interested in uncovering the mysteries of life. Every little understanding in mineralogy, botany or zoology makes human experience even better appreciated. Neuroscience, Medicine, Biomechanics, Health, Midwifery, Salutogenesis, Ecology, Genetics, Epigenetics, Complexity, Anthropology, Sociology, Ethics, Philosophy, (Human) Archaeology, Education and other disciplines all play a part in investigating various aspects of pregnancy and human development from the outside as well as conception, embryonic and fetal development from the inside, birth and early human experiences.

The cooperation among these different disciplines can greatly benefit human health and well-being. By working together, experts from various fields can identify health hubs, develop strategies for support processes, and improve health outcomes for human beings. The goal of prenatal sciences is to ensure the best possible outcome for human beings right from the beginning (Primordial Health Advancement Programs) or restore lost health by understanding the primal causes of disease or dysfunction.

No matter what your profession is, you will greatly benefit from studying prenatal sciences. As an educator you will be able to recognize the pre/perinatal trauma in your student and become a positive, healing figure in his/her life. As a social worker you will be able to really make wise decisions beyond the parameters that you are now taking into account. As a lawyer or judge, your decisions concerning parental communication, divorce, criminal actions, or adolescents' criminality will be seen from a different perspective as well leading to the reform of poenal systems hopefully, at least more justice in the decisions you make. If you are a pediatrician, you will better understand the background of somatic disease in the children you see in your clinic. You can refer to our open course Why It Matters for more information.

No, all study material is included in each lesson.

Every course has its own testing method. Most of the times, there is a quiz to test the understanding of the information and knowledge shared. A pass of 80% is needed. For all professional/ specialization courses, you are also asked to submit your Self-Reflection, Lifeline diary which is a document that you build as you study and in which you include all thoughts, comments, ideas etc you would like to share with us. This assignment allows your mentors to evaluate the assimilation process and critical thinking skills or other skills that you develop as you study.
