Birth Professionals

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 sequel to the sell-out course Preventing Birth Trauma Level 1 (which is required for access to this class).

In this online class we will discuss:

  • What are the ‘two pathways” that lead to Postpartum trauma and how can you help?
  • Research updates on trauma
  • What is post-traumatic growth after a 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.

Goal: 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.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Demonstrate updated knowledge of research literature related to birth trauma including COVID 19.
  2. Understand the systemic factors which influence and perpetuate the phenomenon of Postpartum PTSD.
  3. Understand Post-Traumatic Growth as it relates to Postpartum PTSD and gain concrete skills to improve clients’ resilience after trauma.
  4. Master two clinical models to serve Trauma-Informed Care and Develop Birth Trauma Resilience.
