The Somatics of Birth
The energetic field of a birthing person is limitless. It is inextricably connected to everything and everyone around them including unseeable energies.
The heart of our job as birth workers, including doctors, is to better understand this ‘all one’ natural state and to learn how to nurture it’s exaltation
This is a workshop for birth professionals offering an inspired somatic framework to prevent, reduce and heal trauma in the birth process.
In this workshop participants will:
* Develop and deepen resourcing practices for the birth process - inner and outer
* Increase capacity and skills to stay regulated in the birth process
* Amplify connection to felt sense and intuitive wisdom
* Come away with a clearer understanding of your role within the birth process
Focus areas of the workshop:
1. The art of regulation: How to be a well resourced birth practitioner
2. The art of tracking: How to keep the power with the birthing person
3. The art of differentiation and self-care: How to individuate from the birthing process
