Understanding and appreciating the way our anatomy works is essential to being comfortable with ourselves, our bodies and our sexualities.
In this workshop on August 17 from 10 AM to noon at our headquarters, we’ll explore the intricacies of the uterus and reproductive health, while forming a deeper understanding of menstrual cycles and flows. Touching on reproductive justice, birth, abortion and more, we’ll leave this session with some of the tools and information we need to make more informed decisions about our own reproductive care.
This workshop will be led by Gina Giordano, co-founder of Doula Trainings, International. No uterus is required to attend. All babes welcome. 〰️
This workshop is part of SHE TALKS, #BBATX’s ongoing discussion-based series exploring personal and professional development series, tackling topics from finances to intersectional feminism. Learn more at bossbabes.org/programming.
— MEET THE HOST —
Gina Giordano is a doula and a creator. Originally from Miami Florida, she grew up in a close family unit. As the oldest of five children, she was taught how to support and nurture at a very young age. After studying fine arts in college, she moved to New York City where she was introduced to the idea of doula work. Just after one training her passion for working in pregnancy, childbirth and beyond was ignited. In 2005 she started a business, offering birth and postpartum doula services and education to families. Through her work she learned how to offer compassionate, dignified care for ALL families during childbirth and the postpartum time, no matter their choices. She also saw a need for more doulas. Driven to serve that need she co-founded Doula Trainings, International (DTI) with her long time friend and business partner Tara Brooke. By working as the creative director of DTI, Gina’s mission is to bring awareness to all birth and reproductive options through innovative and curated design. She is the mother to two wild girls, married to her lifelong sweetheart and lives in Austin, Texas.
