March 13th, 1:30pm - 3pm
620 57th Ave,
Alaska Birth Network Meeting
Please plan to join us for our March meeting! Guest speaker Pat Bastani, M.Ed., MPH, Counselor, will address the topic of grief and loss. Her presentation is structured around the actual process of moving between opposites as a way of transformation and growth. This meeting will be beneficial for women who have experienced loss and the people who support them.
"Our society is generally uncomfortable with supporting grief, and usually has little understanding of how to make space for loss as something having value. Professionals themselves are often unable to go to a deeper level of support because they personally have not experienced it, or had anyone support them in their own process of understanding and grappling with the negative side of life. My whole focus is on balance and when society values one side of life (positive) over the other (negative), those who experience something so traumatic as the loss of a child, do not have the necessary support to be able to move on with their lives." - Pat Bastani
Due to the nature of the topic, please leave children at home. Babes
in arms are welcome.
