Reclaiming the Sexuality of Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum
Description: Dr. Podgurski seeks to reclaim the beauty of sexuality to a discussion of physiologic pregnancy and birth. The physicality and emotional/hormonal experiences of the Childbearing Year are fraught with seldom addressed challenges. Postpartum is often misunderstood; a new parent's sexuality may take a back seat to bringing home an infant and adjusting to a new identity. Connecting sexually to the Childbearing Year is a way to share pleasure during a pivotal life year, it is healing and increases communication.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: list 4 roadblocks to embracing the sexuality of the Childbearing Year and reframe those challenges as opportunities; demonstrate 4 interactive techniques to weave information on healthy sexuality into a childbirth class; investigate 4 ways to implement information on healthy sexuality during the Childbearing Year.
