Trauma-Informed YTT: Supporting Pregnant & Birthing People

May 11, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Supporting Pregnant & Birthing People with Melylah Botté Smith

In this module, you will learn how U.S. birthing culture, healthcare disparities, and systemic trauma can all lead to traumatic experiences for pregnant and birthing people. First, we will explore why it is so essential for us to hold this knowledge — not only when teaching to this population, but when being in community with them. Then, in a brave and courageous space, Melylah will show you how to create safer and more welcoming yoga classes that incorporate invitational and inclusive language for all of your prenatal students. This module includes healing-centered practices such as body scans, somatic movement, affirmations, and connection.
