I got a lovely message from one of my Birth Support for Survivors workshop attendees. It makes my heart sing to hear feedback like this!
It is time to start the healing. If you work with women in the childbearing years, consider joining us for an upcoming training or contact me to arrange a workshop in your area.
“I’ve been wanting to thank you for weeks now, for the very informative training.
I have been looking for a training like the one you presented, for years.
And the times I’ve been able to sit in a conference or training about sexual abuse, it has more to do with policy, who to report things to etc.
They never touch on mental, spiritual, physical manifestations/ ways to heal/ be present with someone etc.
Where I found the other presentations to be PowerPoint bullets, I found yours to be human and real.
Thank you, thank you.”
