Keynote Speaker Britta Bushnell

Dr. Bushnell is an author, childbirth educator, mythologist, and speaker with over 20 years of experience working with birthing families. She is an engaging speaker with a depth of experiences that leads to her profound insights into birth, parenting, and relationships. Her work brings practical and transformative ideas to healthcare providers.

During “Awakening the Parent: Are You Supporting or Sabotaging Your Client’s Transformation?” Dr. Bushnell will share her fascinating information on the dynamics of teaching new parents. She’ll explain why it’s so easy for us to unwittingly reinforce the idea that experts hold all the knowledge, leaving parents in the energetic position of the child. You’ll learn about how we can switch from the role of authority to that of mentor or guide, and how we can support transformation into self-guided and autonomous parents. This will be an eye-opening presentation not to miss!

Our GOLD Birth & Beyond 2020 Online Conference brings you top international speakers and info-packed presentations on leading topics in perinatal and postpartum health and runs from October 5 to November 30. The main conference alone includes 12.5 hours of accredited education on topics including disparities in care, parental mental health, postpartum sexual health, and much more. Delegates also enjoy the option to take their education even further with three option add-on lecture packs: Preventing and Healing Perinatal Trauma, Infant Sleep 2020, and Food as Medicine: Advancing our Approach to Perinatal Nutrition.  

We look forward to seeing you online for all the moments of connection and learning at GOLD Birth & Beyond 2020!
