Post-Congress Workshop 2:

Dr Loi Medvin & Deb Puterbaugh "Walk your Talk, Conscious Self-Care for Birth Keepers"

Learn to re-wire your brain with practical self-soothing strategies. It’s no secret that your job is one of the most sacred and rewarding of life’s paths but is also one of the most taxing and trauma inducing. You care so much AND give so much to others but who cares for you? How do you calm, how do you get your needs met? Somewhere between the oxytocin high and the burnout is a place of ease you can attain and pass on to your clients. Join us to find out how.

Ece Elçin Akturan Civelek, "Embodiment of Fetal Movement in Womb and Labour"

The embodiment of fetal movement may guide both expectant parents and childbirth professionals to form non-verbal attunement and sensitivity to conscious yet-to-be-born child’s movement attributes, needs and well-being. As unseen mover reveals itself, an interactive dance may begin.
