As Birth workers we all know that at some time or another we will come across loss, be it known or unknown.

This training will enable you to enter those situations with knowledge and compassion.
My biggest goal working with pregnancy and infant loss has always been to support people so they can enter into this journey without regret.

In this 3 day in person training we will cover:

– Miscarriage
– Ectopic pregnancy
– Medical termination
– Fatal diagnosis
– Stillbirth
– Infant death
– Adoption
– TTC/Pregnancy after loss
– The grief and loss that people experience with typical postpartum, as well as postpartum after having a loss with baby and without
– Supporting family and friends through loss, including siblings
– What you can do to help, how you can be prepared
– Who to reach out to for support for yourself as well

Randi lost her sister at the age of four years of age.
She has had 7 first and second trimester losses, her first being multiples.
Randi started supporting families through loss in 2009 as a peer support, and started professionally in 2015.

Randi has very intimate knowledge when it comes to walking the veil between life and death; the inner knowing of a birthing person as well as young children.
Randi also has extensive trauma and bereavement training and experience through practice.

Motherwit Postpartum Doula Training @ Munay Space
Apr 27 @ 9:00 am – Apr 30 @ 5:00 pm
Motherwit Postpartum Doula Training @ Munay Space

MotherWit Doula Care is pleased to present a comprehensive training in Holistic Postpartum Doula Care.
In a culture that puts a lot of pressure on new mothers to live up to the mythical image of SuperMom, a MotherWit Postpartum Doula has the power to bring a sane, calm perspective. We believe in nurturing the new mother so all she has to do in the precious few weeks after birth is focus on her new baby/babies and her loved ones.
Full healing of everything a woman has gone through during the childbearing year requires some space and reflection. By providing opportunities for rest and proper physical and emotional nourishment, the MotherWit Certified Postpartum Doula creates a special space within which a woman who has just given birth and her partner can heal and come into their own power as a mother and father. We like to call this space the BabyMoon.

At MotherWit Doula Training we focus on nurturing
and facilitating the development of our students, so they may confidently bring their own unique, beautiful qualities
to their work with new families.

Some of the things covered in this 4 day/32 hour workshop:
– Deep, active listening,
– Non-judgmental support
– Breastfeeding support basics
– Newborn care and feeding
– Massage for new mothers
– Home organization for new families
– Postpartum recovery and care
– and so much more.

We will be starting a bit earlier in the day on Friday (and hopefully avoid rush hour!) and end a bit later on the Sunday to allow more time to discuss, learn, and also take in the beautiful surroundings of the Five Oaks Centre and spend time with each other.

Participants will receive a certificate of hours studied in Holistic Birth from The Matrona.
