We know birth matters 

Those of us who support birth know that the experiences of our births stay with us and have lasting impact. 

And yet, over 30% of those giving birth describe the experience as traumatic. What can we do?

Birth Professionals

Do you see your clients and patients develop trauma from their births? 

Do you feel overwhelmed or just need some clarity about it? 

Do you fear that you will see an inrease in trauma with the recent developments and feel powerless?

Can we do anything?

I’m going to speak plainly: knowing what causes trauma is an important step in preventing and healing it- but it isn’t enough. We must learn how to help our clients access their innate resilience, strengths and growth if we want to make a difference. That’s what this course is about.

Back by popular demand! (This is a sell out course every time)

Class Schedule- Live (and Recorded for ticket holders- no worries if you miss!) 

Please note this 4-part class will be a webinar in the comfort of your own home (please make note of time zone).

  • March 14; 10am-11:30am Pacific/ 1pm-2:30pm Eastern
  • March 21; 10am-11:30am Pacific/ 1pm-2:30pm Eastern

Live attendance is encouraged (so you have the opportunity to ask questions and collaborate) but this webinar will be recorded and available to paid registrants for unlimited repeat watching for 30 days after.


In this LIVE webinar class (limited tickets available) we will discuss:

  • What is birth trauma and who is at risk?
  • What are the signs of birth trauma?
  • What are the ‘two pathways” that lead to Postpartum trauma and how can you help?
  • What is post-traumatic growth after traumatic birth and what determines the lucky clients who experience it? (hint: you can help!)
  • Introducing Krysta’s brand new “Trauma Informed Care Provider Model”- a 3 step model which helps you protect your clients’ psychological vulnerabilities to trauma, access their strengths and prevent the long term formation of trauma.

This class will equip you with immediately useful skills, evidence-supported and clinically relevant information and more than that: it’s going to create a clear plan for prevention and healing that you can use to conceptualize your birth work right away.

And like all our classes it is


After this class you will have a deeper understanding of trauma in birth- but I want you to have more than that. This class is going to help you tap into the natural resilience, strength and growth opportunities that your client already has.
