Doctors from the US, Canada, Europe to brainstorm on ‘womb ecology’
Pune January 12, 2019: In a first, US-based Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology & Health (APPPAH) joins hands with the 60-year old Indian NGO Manashakti Research Centre (MRC) to hold a three-day global meet from January 18 on pre-natal care to share experiences ensuring happy child deliveries across the world.
Aimed at tackling myths over prenatal care among the present day young couples and even doctors, the age-old Indian methods and modern scientific methods will be discussed at the first-ever global conference to be held at Lonavla from January 18.
A new branch of science called Womb Ecology is developing to test such concepts and techniques. Yet, even most leading medical practitioners are sadly unaware of this knowledge.
APPPAH’s focus would be to ensure “Womb ecology becomes world ecology,” said D.r Thomas Verny, the association’s founder. “We would like to explore remedial techniques to counteract prenatal and perinatal traumas and enhance the mental and physical health of mothers and fathers and their babies,” he said.
With a stamp of endorsement from the Federation of Obstetric and Gynecological Societies of India (FOGSI), the conference will focus on: Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science of Prenatal Development – Building a New Healthy World from the Womb
Dhanawantari awardee D.r Snehalata Deshmukh, pioneer pediatric surgeon and former vice chancellor of Mumbai University is among key speakers from India. She will deal with ‘My Journey: from Pediatric Surgery to Samskaras’.
“There have been several misconceptions about pre-natal care being a fad though it has emerged as a Sanskar (virtue) in India proving that it is possible to instill virtues in the child right from the embryo stage in the womb,” D.r Deshmukh said. “No wonder, the lay couple often get perplexed due to such extreme positions,” she pointed out.
The sad reality, however, is that some western medical practices, and some Indian thoughts, do not match with this process. The present medical practices halt at only the biological process. The next stages, psychological and social, are not given due importance. Only body requirements like the food the mother should consume, the medicines she should take or the exercise she should undertake are discussed. But her state of mind, the type of literature she should read or the genre of music she should listen to are seldom considered, Pune-based D.r Prakash Gambhir, Geneticist & Pediatrician, says. At the global meet, D.r Gambhir will speak on the Role of Genetics & Epigenetics in Prenatal Development.
MRC and it founder Swami Vijnananand have globally pioneered, what they call, Garbha Sanskars combining the ancient wisdom with scientific methods. MRC with its dedicated team of volunteers has been conducting workshops and training camps on the subject purely as a non-commercial campaign.
Over 1,25,000 expecting parents have participated in MRC’s weekly workshops during the past decade alone. The training consists of one-day workshops, three-day camps, electronic tests and other such exercises, said Mr. Gajanan Kelkar, Research Director of the NGO.
Apart from APPPAH founder D.r Thomas Verny of Canada, Britain’s top epigeneticist Charan Surdhar and several experts from Brazil, The Netherlands, and the US will address the meet.
The speakers from India include leading doctors such as D.r Sanjay Gupte (Pune), D.r Jaideep Malhotra (FOGSI India’s president) and D.r Prabha Chandra from Bangalore’s National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) will be among them.
Several Indian experts such as D.r Vinaya Kshirsagar from Deccan College (Pune) and D.r Vaishali Dabke from Mumbai will also present the ancient concept of Garbh Sanskars.
