Protecting The Sacred: Honouring Birth Parents Through Planning for the Postpartum Journey
Participants will be invited to holistically consider the postpartum needs of birth parents. Through an invitation to walk through the various aspects of their human journey - from the spiritual and cultural, to the emotional, the cognitive and the physical- participants will be invited to think critically and holistically about the human needs of those on their journey towards giving birth and after giving birth. Emily will use these directions to invite participants to support professionals in asking their patients and clients: what they want out of their pregnancy/postpartum journey? Who and what is within their constellation of support, and how? How do we support our parents in accessing their own agency to ask for support in the event that they experience the symptoms of postpartum mood and anxiety disorders?
