I initially had mixed emotions about attending this workshop. But my worries were totally unfounded, as it was a beautifully enriching and informative day that was perfectly facilitated by Michelle, who has the most amazing kindness and warmth. She makes it very easy to share, ask questions and reflect upon personal experiences and those of others, in the safety of the beautiful 'bubble' that is created on the day.
A thought provoking, information giving, reminding workshop. No Doula (or parent) wants to go through this experience, but every Doula should know how to support it should it come their way. Would I recommend it? I already did within days, to a group who already have Michelle booked!
A challenging and inspiring day run with compassion and thoughtfulness.
I was touched by Michelle's warm approach and amazing empathy and understanding to others. I really appreciated her sharing, knowledge and wisdom. Thank you.
I gained some more awareness, but more importantly I was able to touch my own feelings around loss, which I believe is necessary in order to support others.
This workshop is beautiful and sensitively put together and allows for plenty of group discussion and personal reflection. By the end of the day, I was left with a really good sense of how I might be able to support clients through loss, emotionally and practically.
Having previously supported a client through a stillbirth, it was important for me as a Doula to know that the support I had given was good support. It was also good to learn new things to equip me should I meet this situation again.
It was not easy for me to sign up for this workshop on baby loss as I tend to avoid even thinking about the possibility of such experience crossing my way. Michelle created a very heart-full and heart-opening space where we were breaking this taboo about baby loss together and shared our experiences, fears and ways of how to handle such difficult time. I gained understanding and more confidence about the right approach with clients I may support in the future. I also gained a bit more peace inside me when thinking about baby loss. Thank you Michelle
This workshop opened my eyes and ears to a deeper meaning of loss. Knowing that sometimes 'just being' is enough to keep the space and make someone feel support. Very informative thank you.
