The baby that stopped breathing

The case I want to share with you is about a 1 month old baby. I was at my sister's home where she had friends over for dinner. A young couple with their new baby were upstairs, when suddenly the guy screamed, “the baby is not breathing, help!"

I ran up the stairs with a bunch of others, entered the room and saw the mother of the baby holding it in front of her while crying! I took the baby immediately and looked at it. It wasn't moving but wasn't blue. I held it upright close to my chest while whispering calming words into her ear and doing the EFT points up and down the spine as I saw on one of the DVDs.

Suddenly the baby took a breath but it was kind of stuck. I continued doing the back, always checking its colour. After a while she started breathing normally. I took her to a bed, took her pants off in order to give her a sense of freedom (I am a certified coach for baby massage), and started to do the points in the face and the KC point that I felt the baby really enjoyed; she even smiled at me and that felt like a million dollars (I suppose?)

I can't tell you how glad I am that I have this wonderful tool. I don't know if it really was a matter of life and death but the confidence to have a tool that can help instantly, gave me the power to act instead of being paralyzed in this stressful situation. I urged the parents of the baby to go to the doctor as soon as possible to check her breathing pattern.

Author's Bio:

I am an active EFT practitioner since 2008 and love guiding people through the process. Over twenty years of experience in holistic approaches led me to this wonderful technique and today I use EFT ,exclusively. I like to blend in some humor since it helps people realize that they often take themselves too seriously and it doesn't necessarily help them in coping with their problems.
