Calming Grandma by Tapping for the Fetus
by Judy Whitcraft, CERT-I
My 32 year old daughter and her husband worked the system to become pregnant with their first child, and were devastated when she miscarried. So a year later, when my daughter became pregnant again, she was terrified. My emotion was high, as I worried for my daughter’s health – physical and emotional.
There wasn’t much I could do.
Except tap and pray.
I decided to surrogate tap on the fetus as I tapped on myself.
Knowing I was finally DOING SOMETHING TO HELP, I was much calmer. My intensity went from a daily 8 to a 0, and stayed there. I had a mission. The remaining 5 months of the pregnancy was a joy for me as I surrogate tapped each day on the fetus. My daughter became much calmer too.
Knowing the time in the womb is important to the emotional state of the baby then and later, I surrogate tapped on the fetus every day from 3 months to delivery. My intention was to provide a space for the baby to feel safe, calm and confident. I did not do a set up phrase, just tapped in affirmations.
Before we knew the gender, I just called her “sweet squiggly baby.” Later I called her “sweet baby girl” then toward the end added her name. I often looked at the sonogram picture when I tapped.
My phrases included:
“I am sweet squiggly baby, and…”
“I am welcome in this world.”
“I am loved”
“I am comfortable swimming in here”
“The world is a safe place for me to enter”
“I am soooo healthy”
“I LOVE my body”
“I am growing like a weed”
“I am a powerful woman”
“I have gifts to bring that the world needs now”
“Whatever I choose to do in my life is perfect”
“My mama loves me”
“My daddy loves me”
“My grandma loves me”
“I am a beautiful child of the Universe coming to the world to bring joy”
The doctors were concerned about her size/weight, although they said the scores in all the developmental categories were progressing excellent. Due to mama’s high blood pressure, the doctor scheduled a caesarean a month early. While they were in the delivery room, I was in the waiting room tapping (surrogate on the baby) the entire time with affirmations. I was never in anxiety. I knew she was ok, and I knew my daughter was ok.
When my 4 lb. 11oz. granddaughter was just a few minutes old, she was brought to the warming bed where we could see her through the glass. No incubator for this powerful little one. She was kicking and screaming and waving her arms just like she was supposed to!!!
I continued tapping while they cleaned her up using “I am safe” “I am comfortable” “I am perfect” “I am healthy and whole”.
Within an hour, they had her in her mama’s arms in the maternity hospital room with family gathered around. There was not even one problem, not even one issue to concern the doctor.
I will never know how much impact all the EFT had on the arrival of a beautiful, HEALTHY, baby girl. I do know that all the tapping was a great comfort to Grandma (that would be me), knowing I was doing something to help. My mind stayed easily positive the whole time, and I now have a precious connection to my beautiful granddaughter, who is now 2 years old, happy, lively and knows she is loved.
