The bond is the intensive emotional
attatchment established between the
parents and their baby. .
The majority of infants are immediately
prepared to attatch themselves to their
mother. Parents, on the other hand, can
present ambivalent feelings towards the
From gestation to two years old is what is
called ‘the mother’s period’, the mum and baby dyad, characterised by strong attachment as well as distance and isolation from the outside world.
The formation of this particular bond is not something given. It takes time and dedication. It has a gradual development with its subsequent crisis or moments of separation and differentiation.
During pregnacy and after the birth, women experience huge changes in their bodies as well as in their social and family environment, triggering in particular cases in which these changes are not well assimilated, depressive and anxiety states, and some other more acute mental health problems; problems that ultimately can affect the infant and mother’s health.
Following the approach of the eminent French psychoanalyst Francoise Dolto, I invite to my consulting room all pregnant mothers, mothers with their babies and their partners, to a space where they are going to be welcomed and listened to, facilitating in this way the capacity of listening and speaking to their own babies when this has been disturbed by a particular crisis. This is an essential condition for the well physical and psychical development of their infants and for parents themselves.
