Arti Patel, ‘Haptonomy: How to bond with your baby like the French’, https://globalnews.ca/news/3598974/what-is-haptonomy/, Global News, Corus news (July 14, 2017)

You’ve probably heard of hypnobirthing and prenatal yoga, but haptonomy is another method to bond with babies before birth. (…) Originally of Dutch origin, the method is quite popular in France.
