Resiliency for Birth Workers: Facing Trauma and Retaining our Essence

If 34% of birthing people in America describe their births as traumatic – how does this affect the birth worker’s spirit who is supporting them? Where do we find the balance between vicarious trauma and our passions and social justice work?

This session will lay a historical framework for the burnout and trauma we experience in supporting births and end with visions of a balanced and embodied future.

Participants will leave feeling invigorated and balanced.
