Welcome to Birth in Pieces

Birth in Pieces is part of the series on birth trauma that includes the following:

Birth in Pieces is recorded from a day-long workshop that includes the showing of Birth in Pieces, a documentary film made about birth in the US. El Jardín Birth and Family began the Birth in Pieces project in 2015.

A labor of love, this project spanned multiple years and took various twists and turns as we interviewed more and more women. Patterns emerged. We realized that these individual narratives, together, painted a picture of modern birth culture. What's wrong with birth in the USA? It's time to ask mothers.

The film is the outcome of their work interviewing mothers and their partners talking about their experiences with birth.

The course starts with the showing of the film, and then we  offer a series of presentations with the intention to bring awareness to birth trauma and how to heal it.  We need to have ways to prevent and heal birth trauma. This is a vital time of life that can set a human being on a trajectory for health or for neurodevelopmental challenges as a baby, child, and adult. We are interested in supporting families so heal to they can thrive. Prenatal and Perinatal Healing Online is pairing with Kathleen Kendall-Tackett to support several series that feature professionals and their ways to support healing with birthing families and birth professionals. Birth in Pieces is our first series. It will feature:
