Lara Martin, Byron Bay

The Byron Shire has over 300 babies born each year, while most of these births turn out as hoped for, many births leave mothers and fathers in a state of shock and grief.

Birth matters to families no matter how many weeks, months or years have past.

Mothers in our community are suffering in silence and shame amongst a backdrop of the highly praised ‘natural birth’.

When having given birth to your baby doesn’t go to plan it can be devastating.

Lara Martin and Angela Fitzgerald aim to gently guide mothers in integration, new insights and healing after a disappointing birth no matter what it looks like on paper or how long ago it was.

The next monthly Healing After Birth circle will be held on Thursday June 30 at Red Tent Yoga in Byron Bay at 11.30 to 1 pm, for more information email Lara [email protected].
