When Survivors Give Birth Seminar

We are very excited to have Sharon Storton facilitate "When Survivors Give Birth" seminar for Calgary Doula Association doulas. This will be held on January 7, 2017. Cost will be $25.00 per doula. Session will run from 10:00am to 3:00pm. Please email treasurer@calgarydoulas.ca with your name, phone number and email address if you would like to attend. The session is limited to 30 people and you must be a member of the CDA to register. Registrations will be taken on a first come, first served basis. 

When Survivors Give Birth is based on the important book by Penny Simkin and Phyllis Klaus (2004) of the same name. Trained and certified by the authors, Sharon Storton will present information on the short- and long-term effects of childhood sexual abuse, intimate-partner violence, and previous traumatic childbirth experiences, emphasizing the possible impact on childbearing women. Challenges in the client-caregiver relationship are thoroughly discussed, with much practical advice for improving trust and communication as well as self-help techniques to handle abuse-related distress. 

Sharon is a Calgary-based registered psychologist in private practice, with over 20 years of experience in the healing arts. A DONA-trained doula, childbirth educator, and a former IBCLC breastfeeding consultant, with two graduate degrees in mental health and women's wellness, Sharon is an international speaker, writer, and advocate on the importance protecting the intersection of mind/body/spirit in birthing women.
