APPPAH Live: Exploring Birth Psychology- Enhancing Doula Care with Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology with Divya Deswal, SEP, BCST, PPNE

June 27 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Enhancing Doula Care with Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology


Divya Deswal, SEP, BCST, PPNE

Divya has worked with expectant families since 2001 as a Childbirth educator, HypnoBirthing practitioner and Doula. She is a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist and Somatic Experience Practitioner and is currently teaches and mentors doulas in India. She also collaborates with hospitals to set up and facilitate water birth for their clients.  Divya’s journey began with the birth of her first baby in 1996. She realized how much her choices and preference in birth and parenting arose from her cultural and spiritual beliefs about the sentient nature of the baby and how strongly she felt about them. She had an opportunity to experience an embodied spirituality in pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding.

Divya is a PPNE graduate with APPPAH and has also studied Prenatal Development Interventions and Parent Infant pathways with College of Education + Human Development at University of Minnesota. These programs and her training as a SE and BCST practitioner enables her to support women and babies in their journey through pregnancy and birth and beyond. Divya is co-founder of an online platform My Child First, www.mychildfirst.com, that offers information on many aspects of reproduction and parenting. The platform aims to bring diverse information and offer an opportunity to the user to integrate that information from the perspective of the baby and make decisions as parents – ‘Choices in childbirth through the baby’s eyes’.
