While we know how joyous and beautiful birth can be, we also know that about 10-15% of women experience something traumatic at birth. Birth trauma impacts mothers, babies and those that care for them. Psychologist Maureen Campion has been offering her Healing Birth Stories workshop for 9 years and turned her professional and personal work into a book that supports women and families on their healing journey. She offers compassionate and effective tools to support both survivors and the professionals that work in this field. Come join us as we delve into the tough emotions around birth and explore our own trauma while looking at healing and transforming the stories we carry around birth.
