When Survivors Give Birth

Workshop leader Jenn Fontaine is one of a handful of people worldwide who have been personally trained and mentored by Penny Simkin and accredited to present and facilitate the When Survivors Give Birth workshop.

This important client care workshop focuses on understanding and healing the effects of childhood sexual abuse on childbearing women. This is the first time this unique training has been offered in Australia. 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.

Spinning Babies Workshop

Are you a doula, midwife, childbirth educator, body worker or other health care professional that would like to learn more practical and evidence based tools and techniques to prepare women during their pregnancy for an easier labour and birth?

In this Spinning Babies workshop, you will learn how the fascia, ligaments, and pelvis work together to bring baby into an ideal position. The Three Principles of Balance, Gravity, and Movement will help you understand the role each part of a woman’s anatomy plays in birth and delivery. Specific methods will be provided for changing posterior position and reducing breech and transverse lie, thereby reducing the need for a caesarean delivery.
