Blue Heron New Baby Time ~ Birth Trauma
Mar 11 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Our birth experience does not always go the way we have envisioned or planned. Many of us experience trauma during our pregnancy and labour but do not realize it. These experiences can leave us with many feelings including sadness, grief, anger, resentment or isolation. This presentation by counsellor Lisa Aldworth will help you understand birth trauma and how to begin to resolve this trauma within your own life.
