Full course description

Course Description: Self Care for Birth Workers is an introductory course that provides practical advice to help birth workers meet the unique challenges of their work with resiliency and a sense of internal nervous system regulation. It draws on the teachings of Somatic Experiencing, a type of healing that is based on studies of how animals deal with trauma in the wild and making direct connections with the inherent understanding of the nervous system that most birth workers have gained through their experiences of attending births.  It offers simple exercises to guide birth workers to tap into the innate capacity of their own nervous systems, continually increasing their ability to meet difficult situations while calibrating their internal landscape with ease.
