BIRTH TRAUMA SUPPORT GROUP
Join a four session, Saturday morning, weekly, support group for mothers who are overcoming and processing traumatic birth experiences.
Giving birth is a life changing moment that marks the transition from expectant to new motherhood. Often, despite our best laid plans, birth experiences aren't what we had planned or hoped for. It may take time for mothers to process these experiences, and to heal both physically and emotionally.
From physically difficult recoveries, to the complexity of feelings we hadn't expected, you are not alone! Join this group to begin to heal and strengthen your beginning into motherhood.
Erica Lyon, a maternal child health expert, will lead this professionally led peer to peer support group.The group will hold space for participants as they work through their shared and unique experiences.
This support group is limited to eight participants.
This group is a support group and is not a substitute for medical, psychological, or psychiatric care.
Erica Lyon has been teaching pregnancy, postpartum and parenting for 25 years. In the 1990's to the early 2000's she worked at the Elizabeth Seton Childbearing Center developing and teaching classes that became a city wide resource. She was the Founder of NYC's first pregnancy and parent education center, Realbirth from 2003-2010 and is the Author of The Big Book of Birth, Penguin 2007. She has her Bachelors of Science in Human Development with a focus in Maternal Child Health and a Master in Public Health. She is the mother of three ages 26, 22 and 10.
