Birth Trauma – Prevention, Working with Survivors
A Birth Ways International class for Doulas and Doula students.
At least one in four women who have been sexually assaulted. Many pregnant women suffer from past trauma. For some, their birth experience is the initial trauma. This workshop is to teach Doulas prevention and working with survivors.
Many clients don’t disclose information about their past to their care providers, so we must treat all our clients as if they are survivors and/or are prone to birth trauma.
– How past abuse, trauma, and sexual assault can affect the birth process
– Triggers during prenatal care and through birth
– Ways to help prevent birth-trauma
– How interventions can help or harm
– How to find help for your client to process trauma
– About “bystander trauma”, which can affect birth doulas
Can’t attend live? That’s OK – a video recording and class documents will be sent to all registrants after the class.
