I feel so blessed over and over about last Saturday””

I feel totally resolved now and lighter. When I think of her birth the sadness has gone. I feel confident that when it comes up, I can talk to her about it and it will be just fine.”

Sometimes a birth experience deviates greatly from what you hoped for.

Sometimes—even if outwardly it went to plan—you are left with mixed feelings.

Sometimes it is years before a woman is able to admit that she had difficulty coming to terms with giving birth.

Do you feel grief, loss, anger or shame when you think of your childs birth? Maybe you keep replaying it in your mind? Perhaps you are preparing for another baby and feel anxious as you approach birth again. Many things can cause these thoughts and feelings: a loss of control or dignity, a lack of respect from those around you, not being heard, pressure or anxiety from caregivers, separation from your baby, fear for your or their wellbeing.

Roma Norriss and Binnie A Dansby invite you into a safe and gentle environment specifically designed to support you to release anything you have been carrying that is unresolved about your childs birth.

Connect with others and have an opportunity to share your experience if you choose

Gain confidence and clarity about birth

Learn how to shift your perspective and reframe your experience

Enjoy tangible improvement in your relationships with your children, your partner, and the world

Find forgiveness for yourself and those involved

Free up more energy and passion for Life

Many times in the past 35 years of working with birth issues, I have been asked to support a woman and her partner to resolve a dramatic and traumatic birth experience. Clearly we cannot change circumstances, yet we can discover new perspectives, new ways of thinking about every situation. When we are able to speak about our deepest thoughts and feelings we open the door to discovering new and more life enhancing perspectives. This healing process is important for the relationship with the child born of a less than ideal birth, for the family, for future births, and for the sake of moving on in peace for everyone. AFTER BIRTH, Resolving and Honouring the Birth of Your Baby, offers the opportunity to open new pathways to peace and joy in your relationship with birth and with life.

More feedback from participants:

I felt so differently after the workshop. For the first time ever I feel that I could do it again and differently this time. I dont feel so terrified. Thank you so much everyone for creating such a safe, heart felt and healing day.”

After two weeks since the meeting I could say I am more relaxed about the events of the two births I had.
I went through all sorts of emotions: anger, fear, feelings of panic; but I kind of learned that those feelings were there for a reason. I have forgiven myself for not being able to birth naturally but respect myself now for being clever enough to go to the hospital and letting the doctors to help to bring out my babies. I have told my first one that I have saved her life when she stopped moving inside me. And I keep telling my second one the events of how he was carried for 9 month and born at the hospital. Thank you all to help me to release the left over of the emotions and be supportive and kind.”

For me, the day was like a lens plopping into place, enabling me to understand things about my births and myself in a deep way and deepening my understanding of birth in general.”
