Trauma Skills for Doulas and Birthworkers



Birth is a major event. We know that. We’re doulas. What we may not know is how to support women when they have had a previously traumatic birth or any traumatic event in the pelvis.

Trauma is a big word, but we all experience it. It is a part of being human. 

So is Healing.

You will learn:

  • What trauma means in the body
  • What to look for ahead of time that may influence the birth, how to talk about it with your client, and how to help her better prepare to be able to be in the present moment for this birth.
  • How to recognize when your client has gone into fight, flight, freeze or collapse and what to do about it. 
  • How to regulate yourself when you recognize that you have gone into fight, flight, or freeze

 This is an experiential workshop.
