#123: Brain Connections And Bonding With Michelle Mintz, M.S., CCC-SLP

September 1, 2022



Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! 


Have you ever heard of parents talking to their babies in the womb? It might seem silly at first glance, but we’re told that connecting with the baby in utero is important.


But why exactly is that the case and is doing things like talking to them actually making a difference?


Answering these questions is my guest Michelle Mintz, a certified Speech Language Pathologist and expert in early childhood development. She is also the founder of  Baby Blooming Moments™, a unique coaching experience designed to enhance the way parents, siblings, grandparents, and nannies interact with their babies and toddlers.


Michelle explains why pursuing brain connections with your baby is so important, during pregnancy and after delivery. We discuss topics like separation anxiety, how to tweak what you’re probably already doing to enhance bonding, and even touch on the side-effects of the pandemic on “pandemic babies”. 


 Some big takeaways are:

  1. Your baby becomes familiar with sounds while in the womb.
  2. Bonding creates a safe and secure environment. 
  3. It’s never too late to start connecting more with your child.


With everything else that is on your mind, making the time to intentionally connect might seem daunting. But if you take the time to prepare yourself now, you will give yourself the freedom to enjoy your baby later!


The Planning For Postpartum Workshop is a great first step!
