“I attended an enlightening and empowering workshop entitled Supporting Women through Perinatal Loss guided by Miriam Maslin, an amazing doula and polarity therapist from Jerusalem. She didn’t teach the session but guided us to the awareness and answers that were within by encouraging us to learn from each other and to trust in ourselves.”
—“The Neutral Fulcrum” by Mary Beth Nance, CD (DONA), CLD (CAPPA), International Doula, Volume 16, Issue 2, p. 9.

The entire birthing process can be seen as a paradigm. Painful contractions represent the challenges in our lives; and each challenge presents an opportunity for growth and healing. The greater the challenge, the greater the potential for transformation. Only from the deepest, darkest places can we reach the loftiest heights.

Stillbirths and neonatal deaths are “contractions” that no one ever wishes to encounter. Yet, working in this field, each of us will ultimately be called upon to support through such an experience.

Who Can Benefit?
This class will be of special interest to midwives, doulas, midwife birth assistants, NICU nurses, counselors and other birth care service professionals who may be faced with helping parents through perinatal loss.

What Will Be Covered?

  • How can we, as childbirth professionals, learn to be truly present
    with our clients?
  • Do we know that while pain and loss are inevitable, trauma is not?
  • What can we do to support in a way that will promote healing
    and growth?
  • And finally, how can we nurture and elevate ourselves throughout this difficult process?

We will explore this challenge through stories, meditations, writing, counseling exercises, sharing, and teachings.
