Perinatal Havening


Kimm Sun, a midwife from New York City has integrated Havening with her midwifery care since 2016, and discovered that Havening skills will allow midwives, doulas and birth workers to provide a truly holistic care to clients and their families. She aims to share her work with other birth workers, and make mental and emotional health care much more assessable to the birth community of NYC.

Are you pregnant and in search of an effective stress relief technique? Do you want to sleep better and feel calmer? Are you looking for safe, soothing ways to nurture a healthy body and mind during this crucial time?

This Self-havening for Pregnancy workshop, designed by a midwife, is easy to learn, gentle, and powerful. Whether you are coping well or are feeling overwhelmed and experiencing pregnancy symptoms such as insomnia and some degrees of anxiety, self-havening could be one of the most valuable tools you could have. If you are already under the care of a therapist, self-havening can also support your healing process.
