AN INDISPENSABLE BIRTH PREPARATION for BIRTH WARRIORS:
Helping Parents Change the Story they bring to birth
with Tutor PAM ENGLAND
TUESDAYS, JULY 27 to AUGUST 31, 2021

The benefits of Birth Story Medicine should not be limited to Return stories.
Changing the story brought to birth is the best way to change the story brought from birth.
In the past two years, pregnant women began calling to talk about the story they were bringing to birth. They know that changing the story they are telling themselves about themselves, an aspect of childbirth or the medical model, or a negative state of mind from a previous birth is key to preserving their courage and peace of mind.
Each storyteller and story are unique and layered; therefore, each Birth Story Medicine prenatal session is custom designed. But one thing is consistent: Although no one can predict or guarantee how a birth will unfold, a Birth Story Medicine session—especially a series of meetings—will reduce emotional birth trauma.
What to know about this Summer Seminar? In addition to learning new material and participating in our lively dialogues, during each seminar, a parent or several parents will join us (either the beginning of our class or after our orientation/dialogue). You will hear the stories they are bringing to thier birth and how Pam utilizes Birth Story Medicine's philosophical principles to mentor them. Typically Pam will not know what the parents are bringing, so this demonstration will be impromptu.
Your success in this seminar is dependent on showing up everytime and fully participating, being prepared when preparation materials are given in advance.
A recording will be made. for Birth Story Medicine, but recordings will not be sent out to students for any reason: so show up and participate.
