As a little girl, I was terrified whenever my mother took me to the dentist. So terrified, that the dentist refused to work on me unless I was asleep, and he gave my mother pills to give me before each appointment. As I got older I wondered why I was always so sleepy before, during and after the dentist. Mom explained about my terror, the pills, and the root of my fear. As a very young baby I was taken to the hospital with an infection and was administered a shot of penicillin causing a severe allergic reaction.
This experience triggered my terror of not only dentists, but anyone wearing a white coat, including doctors and nurses. The incident set the stage for my fear of needles even to this day, although I am not afraid of the dentist anymore and know it doesn’t hurt.
Today I took my four year old daughter Chloie to the dentist she has been going to ever since her first tooth broke through. I was amazed how calm she was. She hopped up in the dentist chair, getting x-rays of her teeth with no fear in her heart at all. The dentist also had to scrape a stain off her front teeth and she received a toy for being so good. I am so grateful for this. I know that as long as I am peaceful and relaxed, she seems to take on those same feelings.
I know from being a coach, and from being coached since before I was pregnant, that as long as the mom is calm, peaceful, and aligned with her core truth, the child will be calm and peaceful. The miracle of being coached while you are pregnant is that you learn that when you are less stressed, your baby will feel the same way. Your baby will develop strong, positive, motivating beliefs that will support her/him for the rest of their life.
The more pregnant women I can reach through Core Alignment and Making Miracles Coaching, the stronger their children will be. Any fears that come up throughout the pregnancy for the mother-to-be can be realigned to a new belief that will be supportive not only throughout the pregnancy, but for the rest of her life, and the life of her baby.
