Resilient Birth


At Resilient Birth we bring the focus back to a supportive community by connecting families together throughout their parenting journey: from conception, to birth and beyond. Resilient Birth's childbirth education classes, and prenatal and postnatal support groups are unique because the focus is on you. There are so many parts that come together to write your unique story. Having children can shift this story and it can feel as if parts of yourself have been lost. Pregnancy and early parenthood is a time full of joyous expectation and love, but changes in our bodies, relationships, and self can also make it challenging. We offer you a space to explore and understand your new identity as a parent. We encourage you to bring whatever you are holding. We promise to meet you where you are at, providing you with education, advocacy and support that touches on all parts of who you are. Resilient Birth was founded by Dr Justine Leach and Sarah Adelmann. Dr Justine Leach, is a BACE certified childbirth educator, advocate for trauma-informed care, and mother of two. She has a Ph.D. on consent and sexual trauma, and has trained with Penny Simkin and Phyllis Klaus on supporting survivors giving birth. Sarah Adelmann, M.A., M.Ed., is a trauma certified counselor, educator, and mother of two. Throughout her career, she has tirelessly worked to support survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, along with educating offenders. We know what it’s like to tap into our resilience as women and as mothers. Together we are here to help you connect to your power as a mother, make choices that are right for you, and advocate for the support you need.
