BIRTHING RESILIENCE

Are you passionate about changing the way we do birth?

Are you ready to make a positive difference in birthing women's lives?

There’s never been a better time to connect with the sacred work of birth support. But with sky-rocketing rates of trauma, it isn’t enough to learn the how-to of the perinatal period. You must be trauma-informed, you need to know how allow yourself to be re-birthed, and a broader, wide-lens holistic perspective is required.

Birth transforms us, but for many women, that transformation is less than positive. But it doesn’t have to be this way; birth has a potent potential to transform us for the better, and find new depths to resilience. For those whose transition has been difficult, there is hope and healing. 

What the world needs now, more than ever, are people who can support a more connected, positive transition through the birth portal. 

This course will equip you to support your clients more deeply as they navigate this often unpredictable terrain. Traversing the intersection of trauma, physiology and culture, you will emerge with embodied skills and tools for offering your clients the container they deserve.

Currently in birth...

  • In Australia, at least 30% of women are emerging from pregnancy, birth and postpartum traumatised. PTSD rates are reported to be around 10%.
  • American and UK statistics are similar.
  • And this is just the women that a recorded – the true number is likely to be much, much higher.

We can do better.

I've worked with hundreds of women over the past seven years...

I can teach you

… how to first unlearn the conscious and subconscious messaging of the Western culture…

… relearning what our bodies need and how to access these birthing pathways in our modern-day environments…

… and then how to powerfully hold space for birthing women as they welcome their babies, and their new selves, Earthside.

Starting in 2021. Enquiries open now.

This course traverses the intersection of trauma and autonomic nervous system function with perinatal physiology.

No matter where you are in the world, if you are passionate about supporting women as they transition through this rite of passage, this course is for you. It will help you to understand how to use presence to support the reclamation of power in the birthing portal.

What women have said about my birth courses...

“The best birth course everrrrr. I honestly can’t recommend it enough!! It has given me so much knowledge even with this being my 3rd pregnancy!”

CHRISTIE MACSWEEN (Embracedmotherhood.com)

“Yes, I’ve had a baby before… but although I read lots and thought I understood what I needed to get through labour as naturally as possible, I didn’t feel empowered enough to put it all into practice. Quite frankly, my first birth was dictated by the obstetrician, hospital policies and my own fear… and I regret the things that happened. Through this course I’ve gained an expansion on the knowledge I already had, an expansion which has ‘clicked’ everything into place. I am now feeling positive and empowered that I can do this. I can!”

ERICA SOLLY

The course for me was so beneficial, because instead of having all these random thoughts about what was going to happen, it made me think about actual situations and my actual “plan” and the illusion of having some sort of control (haha). The workbook helped me gather my thoughts and then being able to talk it all over during the call was so helpful.

Your course empowered me to trust my instincts and remain calm and just deal with it as it happened, feeling confident that I’d make the right decision.”

KATHLEEN ROWELL

“Anna is amazing… having just been part of this course, I’d totally recommend it to ANYone about to have a baby.. even if it’s not your first. So much information, so much support, so much insight. I could say a lot about this… I’m so deeply grateful for how much more empowered I feel because of this course. Even when things don’t go to plan, Anna has helped me feel more capable of finding answers to make my own choices. This course is HONEST and so beautifully practical and holistic at the same time.”

World-class education in your own home, from an award-winning Childbirth Educator

Don’t feel like wearing pants? It’s all good, we’ll never know. You can get comfy, grab your snacks and join us over the interwebs in the comfort of your own home. 

Here’s why I believe this course is so important:

Because birth is not a one time event. It sends us on a trajectory into motherhood and impacts us for the rest of your life. Women in dementia wards can still remember their births when given a baby to hold.

Because birth may be natural, but the way we do birth is anything but. And understanding what it is we actually need – compared to what is on offer as ‘standard’ – is crucial. Up to 70% of hospital policy is not based on evidence, and over a THIRD of Australian women are coming out of birth traumatised. We are overdue for change, and while many have been tirelessly working towards it, we need more who are ready to step into this work too.

Because our births affect our babies too, and a healthy baby is more than just an alive baby. Humans are wired for attachment, and how we experience these events as babies help to set our idea of what love and connection are. We want healthy babies in body AND mind.

Because healthy mothers raise healthy babies, and those healthy babies become our future. Trauma has a flow on effect to the whole of society. Improving pregnancy, birth and newborn life improves the future of society.

Because in pregnancy, birth and the post-birth period, our brains are designed to be re-wired. That rewiring can be positive, or less than positive. We want people to come out of this experience as ready and able as possible to take on parenthood.

I'd love to support you in this sacred work.
