Facilitator: Victoria, Australia
As far back as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the complexity and mystery around birth stories. My experience of giving birth, birth trauma, and childbirth mentoring have led me on a long and deep personal journey. After being a childbirth educator for six years, I began seeking a new and more holistic path, and was drawn to Birthing From Within. At the introductory training, I was blown away when I learned how birth stories can be processed. Birth Story Medicine healed my birth trauma in a way I hadn't been able to; I then became a Birth Story Listener and am now a Certified Birth Story Medicine Facilitator.
When I listen to a birth story. . .
I am amazed at the common threads I see in birth story sessions, and yet the meaning clients take from their experiences are wildly unique and personal. It lights me up when my clients have new insights and gain understanding during their session. I thrive on guiding each storyteller to find their own unique healing and seeing them connect back to their self-compassion.
As a facilitator/ teacher. . .
I find joy working with new birth story mentors as they learn about themselves through the personal practice of Kintsugi. As a facilitator, teaching the course is both challenging and rewarding as I help each student become the best birth story mentor they can be. It is gratifying to see how Birth Story Medicine is life-changing for every person who
experiences the process.
