Virtual Training


2 CE hours- Live and On Demand February 7

If you feel overwhelmed by clients' difficult birth experiences you are NOT the only one! Most training does not cover the psychological impact of birth support on a professional. Birth workers are left trying to piece together a solution and wondering: "What do I DO to cope after a bad outcome?!"

Research demonstrates that the leading cause of burnout and turnover is due to unresolved professional trauma. Professionals who have the information they need to heal have lower rates of illness, turnover, absenteeism and more. Wouldn’t it be amazing to feel joy in your career again?

In this class you’ll learn how to apply the latest evidence in mental health and trauma so you can heal after distressing experiences. Give yourself the gift that lasts a career: the know-how to heal from your work.

Learn how to:

  • Understand your nervous system and why some births just “hit you harder”
  • Decrease professional trauma (yes, even after a bad birth)
  • Foster Resilience in yourself and your coworkers
  • Leave with a plan for your acute care after your next hard birth


This brief class will be offered live so that you can enjoy interactive Q&A and chat with audience members. You will leave feeling confident in your new skills!

Class Will Be Recorded

The class will be recorded and available for ticket holders. If you have to miss a class due to a birth or conflict- No Problem! All ticket holders will receive a recording of the class. No expiration.
