Continued Training - Doula Addition

Last weekend I spent all of Saturday (8am-5pm) at a local midwifery center, which hosted an amazing training on When Survivors Give Birth. The unfortunate truth is that sexual assault will effect a jarring amount of people during their life, and that birth can be greatly effected by those experiences. It was an intense day, but so important with such valuable information.

I'm always looking for ways to make my practice more conscientious to all who may find their way to me. This training was definitely an important one.
