How was your birth? Have you felt heard when sharing the harder parts of this magical (AND challenging) experience?
Today on the show I speak with Bronwyn Addico about birth trauma and why ALL feelings are valid when unraveling our birth stories.
what birth "empowerment" can mean to different people
the stages of working through the birth experience
how to recognize if you need help and what options there are to assist you
how to share your feelings with your family and friends as well as medical practitioners
Bronwyn Addico (she/her) is the owner of Balancing Birth to Baby, a support company for expecting and new parents that offers prenatal education and Doula support in Southern Ontario, Canada. She has been a Childbirth & Early Parenting Educator since 2015 and a Birth & Postpartum Doula since 2016.
After a difficult birth experience in 2013, she embarked on a journey to become a Birthing From Within childbirth mentor and spent time in California in the Spring of 2016 to further her in-depth training.
Bronwyn has been deeply influenced by this program’s view of birth as an initiation into parenting and how to examine your fears of birth and parenting. She uses the tools that she learned in this program within all aspects of her professional career and has developed them into a coaching program to help birthing people prepare for birth and work through a difficult or traumatic birth experience. She has supported more than 100 families during their births and early parenting journey.
Bronwyn is a single mother to two wonderful kids.
Bronwyn offers one to one coaching program to work through a difficult birth/birth trauma as well as so much more!
