Moving Beyond a Difficult Birth Experience

On September 12th & 19th, due to continued interest, we are again offering our two-part birth workshop: "Moving Beyond a Difficult Birth: Embracing Healing and Connecting with your Baby." This is a powerful, transformative workshop for any mother who has experienced trauma around her birth experience, to help her with tools for healing and heartfelt exercises for reconnecting with her baby.

Moving Beyond a Difficult Birth:
Embracing Healing and Connecting with your Baby

September 12 & 19, 2pm-4pm $45
The experience of birth doesn't always happen the way we imagine. Intense emotions from a challenging pregnancy or birth can make it feel difficult to be fully present with our baby. These emotions need and deserve to be expressed and acknowledged, before we can allow ourselves to release them and begin true emotional healing. Then we can relax more deeply into a heartfelt, intuitive connection with our child.

Part One: Birth Healing through Story and Art
Telling our story in a safe, supportive circle of women can be a profoundly powerful experience. In Part One of this workshop, we will share our birth stories together, while exploring artistic and body-mind tools for expressing and releasing difficult emotions and inviting emotional healing.

Part Two: Connecting Deeply with your Baby
What babies most need from us, is heartfelt connection. In Part Two of this workshop, we will explore creative exercises for healing our emotional connection with our baby after a difficult birth, helping us bring forth our intuitive wisdom as mothers for welcoming our babies fully and lovingly into our lives.

This workshop series is held at Nurture: Center for Growing Families, 1614 NE Alberta St, Portland, OR 97211. Sliding scale is available.

About the presenters:
Sarah Nuxoll
After several years of feeling frustrated as a parent, I began working toward deeper body-mind clarity and emotional and spiritual healing. Now I feel excited about helping myself and others to engage life, move with our creativity, and allow ourselves to feel happy as parents. In these workshops, I share insights from my experience as a mother of two, as a spiritual practitioner, and as a former apprentice homebirth midwife. I look forward to meeting you!
