Revisiting and sharing your birth experience – Support Group
July 1, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Becoming a mother is a life changing experience filled with joy and happiness. But for some the journey of giving birth and the birth experience can be overwhelming and even isolating. It can also leave a tremendous emotional impact. Feelings of disappointment, sadness, shame or failure can complicate our transition to motherhood, attachment and influence our perspective on future birthing experiences.
Whatever the specifics of your birth experience were, the Birth Forward support group will provide a safe place to connect with other women and process your emotions in a healing way. This support group is for anyone who would like to talk to other mothers, share experiences and a place where mothers can support one another in a safe space discussing as little or as much as they like.
The support group will be facilitated by our Birth Forward professional members:
– Anna Lyssiotou- practising counseling psychologist with specialist experience in anxiety disorders such as PTSD, womens’ rights and attachment parenting
– Stephanie Nicolaou – embryologist, certified doula and birth educator
– Tanny Tran- qualified midwife
These professionals can use their work experience and knowledge of labour and birth, to help answer questions about birth experiences, to refer for further support and if appropriate to share information regarding future birth choices.
The support group session will take place at the Home4Cooperation, Nicosia on Friday 1st July 2016 from 10am to 12pm.
FREE event. Donations towards Birth Forward are welcomed.
