Event description


We know birth matters

Those of us who support birth know that the experiences of our births stay with us and have lasting impact. How we feel about our birth begins the story of our parenting.

As a birth professional...

do you see your clients and patients develop trauma from their births? Do you feel overwhelmed or just need some clarity about it?

While over 30% of those giving birth describe the experience as traumatic, up to 8% will go on to develop PTSD as a result of the experience. As birth professionals, we will undoubtedly attend traumatic births and yet we are given little if any information about best practices for preventing trauma to our clients. What are we supposed to do here?

Can we do anything?


In this live webinar (limited tickets available) we will discuss:

  • What is birth trauma?

  • Who is most at risk for PTSD after birth?

  • What are the signs of birth trauma?

  • What can we do in the birth room to minimize psychological trauma to our clients?

This class will emphasize therapeutic skills that can be adapted to the real world by an experienced licensed trauma therapist and certified doula who has been there.

Perfect for doulas, nurses, midwives and OBs


After this class you will have a deeper understanding of the subject of birth trauma as well as five immediately applicable new skills for the birth room with your clients and patients. You will leave the class (finally!) equipped to grapple with this timely and important topic.
