Holding Space For Pregnancy Loss 

Presented by Naima Beckles, MA, LCCE, CD

Pregnancy loss touches each of our lives and as childbirth educators we need skills to hold space for it. In this 60 minute webinar, Naima Beckles will:

  • guide participants through an analysis of the U.S.’s most recent stats on perinatal loss 
  • lead a discussion on how, for Black birth givers in particular, American racism is a risk factor for perinatal loss
  • share strategies for acknowledging previous losses in our birth classes, and 
  • shine a light on several women of color storytellers who share their first-hand experiences with perinatal loss

Participants will leave this webinar with a new perspective and new skills for being present to a very sensitive and difficult topic.

Naima Beckles is an educator, doula, and founding director of For Your Birth – a birth work consultancy in New York City. Soon after the birth of her first child, she chose the work of supporting expectant parents and earned certifications from DONA and Lamaze International where she currently serves as a member of the board. Naima also leads curriculum and community partnerships for Soshe Inc - a maternal health and wellness company. In addition, she is a teacher for The Institute for the Study of Birth Breath and Death where she has co-created courses for birth professionals on understanding and responding to pregnancy loss, trauma, and infant death in communities of color. A published author and media contributor, Naima lovingly stands alongside individuals navigating life’s triumphs and difficulties.
