The APPA method uses elements of prenatal psychology, visualisation exercises, deep relaxation techniques, narrative techniques. It is focused on three pillars: First, analysing the pregnant woman's bonding capacity and quality on the basis of her own bonding experiences which are deeply intertwined with her mother and father. Which factors within the relationship with her mother and/or father indicate whether there are blockages preventing the development of bonding with her baby and launching the mental and emotional contact with her baby. That way, the mother actively contributes to a successful pregnancy and smooth and easy birth.
Secondly, developing the contact with her baby which may take the form of images, internal dialogues and emotions, all of which are being transfered from mother to baby and vice versa. When that happens the baby feels and understands that it is being perceived as an independant human being which enables him to feel self-conscious, meaning having consciousness about his own identy.
Thirdly, on the basis of that kind of contact and its continuity mother and baby will be capable of mastering the birth giving process together. That part is the most revolutionary element of the whole method and will be explained in detail in the course.
