Lectures About Stillbirth

Stillbirth & After: sharing my personal story, offering insights and thoughts that helped me along the way towards healing.

A Conversation About Stillbirth: with Yael Saslove-Shani (a Chinese Medicine practitioner for over 20 years, specializes in Chinese Gynecology). A lecture for practitioners of Complementary Medicine. In this lecture, we show two sides of stillbirth: the woman who has experienced stillbirth, and the practitioner who accompanied and supported her. We discuss the role of the practitioner in providing a safe, non-judgemental environment in which allows women who have undergone stillbirth to feel comfortable and understood. We discuss how to provide this environment by offering an alternative to the current discussion about stillbirth, which we find to be limiting, belittling and adds to the feeling of isolation women already feel. The new conversation allows the woman to feel the full range of emotion and by doing so encourages the process needed for recovery and healing.
