This important client care workshop focuses on understanding and healing the effects of childhood sexual abuse on childbearing women. Join maternity care, mental health and allied providers to focus on the issues of the least understood of pregnant clients. This is the first time this unique training has been offered in Australia.

✅ Advance your understanding of an all too common issue for childbearing women and families.

✅ Expand your care practices for women at risk of poor physical and psychosocial childbirth outcomes.

✅ Improve your response to women who express emotional concerns about childbearing.

Anyone working with childbearing women will gain knowledge and skills in this one-of-a-kind workshop, which is the culmination of decades of collaboration between Penny Simkin, PT, CCE, CD(DONA), and Phyllis Klaus, MFT, LMSW. Together they also wrote the 2004 book of the same name, When Survivors Give Birth.

This training has also been approved for 7.5 CPD hours with the Australian College of Midwives and DONA International.
