Igniting Your Passion and Helping Parents

Birth work is amazing, beautiful, rewarding...and challenging. Supporting parents through major life transitions comes with its own unique struggles for birth and postpartum workers. I want to help you connect with the passion that called you to this work, and to yourself as a birth professional. 

I offer local in-person workshops, as well as online trainings to help you foster amazing new skills for supporting yourself through the labyrinth of birth and postpartum work, and guiding parents through healing and self-compassion.

Part II: The Underworld of Birth - Saturday, April 28th 9:30-11:30 am

Over the course of your career, you will find that there is a building, shedding, and rebirth cycle that repeats again and again. Shedding ideas and truths about birth can be painful and disorienting. Join us for an open-hearted look at the pieces that have crumbled and fallen away in the cycle of your birth work.

Part III: Embracing the Shadow - Saturday, May 26th 9:30-11:30 am

The events that take place in birth are not isolated incidents. Rather, birth is a tableau where larger narratives, rules, and habits play out in a profound and memorable way. This workshop in an opportunity to uncover the forbidden and embrace the pieces of yourself that you've been conditioned to push away.

Part IV: Returning to Wholeness - Saturday, July 7th 9:30-11:30 am

After trials, learning, and new growth we begin our quest for integrating transformative experiences, rather than pushing them away.

May 19th-20th Remax Building on Clear Lake City Blvd.

Have you ever had a client or patient tell you their birth story and you didn't know what to say? As a birth or postpartum professional, you likely come into frequent contact with birth stories as the parents you work with try to make sense of their experience.

In just a short time you can have a meaningful impact on the way people interact with their birth story, and co-create lasting change with your storyteller.

In this workshop you will learn a "map" for helping parents find new meaning in their birth story. You will come to understand the difference between deep listening and "cheerleading." You will have new skills in leading a solution-focused dialogue parents in your community.

At the end of these two days, the way you interact with birth stories will be forever changed...
