When Survivors Give Birth: A workshop with Penny Simkin

Cover of "When Survivors Give Birth" image of two hands holding a heart with a break line down the middleI wanted to highlight an upcoming workshop on the topic of working with survivors of violence and abuse in birthing situations.

It’s the weekend of February 5-6 in Seattle at the Simkin Center.

I think it’s an important topic for birth activists, as so many folks have experienced abuse and trauma in their lives that can be triggered in the birth process.

Penny Simkin is a well-known and widely-respected birth educator and co-author of the book When Survivors Give Birth. I haven’t read it myself, but I’ve heard good things.

More information about the training here, or you can check out the book here.

    I took this seminar a few years back and it was excellent. If you’re on the fence – definitely sign up. I couldn’t believe how relevant it was in my doula practice, and the tips and strategies I was given were very, very helpful. Highly recommend.
