Healing from Difficult Disappointing or Traumatic Birth for Care Providers and the Women We Care For
Women know that it deeply matters how they give birth to their children. The birth profoundly affects the child’s life and how a mother mother’s her child as well as a mother’s own deep sense of herself. Each birth also profoundly affects the midwife who has cared for a woman and her baby. This class is for both birth givers and their midwives. If you are experiencing the effects of a difficult, disappointing or traumatic birth, either as a woman who has given birth or as a midwife , you are invited to join this class. This class will describe the elements of a difficult disappointing or traumatic birth as a basis for understanding what is involved in healing from such a birth. It will also provide an emotionally safe, non-judgmental space for you as a participant do some restorative and empowering work.
