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.
