Birth Work Breath Circle | Saturday, November 24, 2018 1pm CST
This virtual breathwork circle is a safe, non-judgmental space for airing out and processing "birth stuff” that accumulates in the mind, heart and body of people working with folks in and around the time of pregnancy. Breathwork is an efficient and effective way of connecting with your body, discharging stuck emotions, and gaining clarity about your goals. Doulas, midwives, lactation professionals, therapists and maternity care providers are welcome to join.
As a birth worker, what you see, hear and feel matters because, as empathetic social beings, we are neurologically wired to "try on" the client experiences we witness. Anyone working in reproductive health needs to engage in self-care with attention to the emotional, physical, and spiritual costs of this work. Addressing the unpredictable and unavoidable medical complications, human rights violations, and "booby traps" against breastfeeding and postpartum bonding helps you avoid burnout and maintain a spark for your role in improving maternity care.
But birth drama aside... this work is exhausting! It takes time away from being with your family and for solo-prenouers can be quite lonely. Join the group, fill your cup and sip alongside other birth workers who get where your'e coming from.
THIS GROUP IS NOT EDUCATIONAL OR INSTRUCTIONAL. I am not here to tell you how to do your thing. The group will open with a meditation on the intention to nourish you work in this field. Then you will lay down and breath for about 30 minutes. You will complete the circle feeling connected to the birth community and rejuvenated in with purpose and passion.
Upon completing the purchase, you will receive a confirmation email. A few days before the event, you will receive a URL link to join the group. If you cannot join the group, you will be sent a link to a recording of the healing circle. Please make sure to create a space where you can be uninterrupted and lay down for the breathing portion. An eye pillow is useful if you have one.
See you there!
