Emerging Birth Stories: Helping Parents Heal

  • Saturday, March 2, 2019 in Santa Barbara, CA (10 am to 5 pm)
  • Through thought-provoking teachings and experiential processes, we explore the power of birth stories (whether disappointing, traumatic, or triumphant), how they emerge and evolve, and how to look at any birth through a nuanced and compassionate lens. This workshop is designed for perinatal professionals, including nurses, midwives, doulas, educators, yoga teachers, social workers, therapists, breastfeeding counselors, and support group leaders.
