Ilonka O’Neil is a facilitator of Holding Space for Pregnancy Loss workshops through The Institute for the Study of Birth, Breath and Death. HSPL is geared toward birth doulas, OBGYNS’s, nurses, midwives, faith leaders, fertility specialists, birth photographers, prenatal yoga teachers, bereavement peer supporters, etc. Our goal is to prepare participants to more confidently and compassionately hold space for one of life’s most painful and devastating losses.
“Those of us who devote our professional lives to holding space for birthing women know how heavy the shadow of ‘not discussing it’ can be. Silent, unprocessed grief from previous pregnancy loss can deeply impact the trajectory of a mother’s future pregnancy and childbirth experiences.” -Amy Wright Glenn, Founder of The Institute for the Study of Birth, Breath and Death.
She is located in South Florida, teaches workshops through south Florida and is also available to travel.
