Cesarean Birth Support

Our Cesarean Birth Support gathering is intended to provide a space for people who have given birth via cesarean to share their experience, process their emotions, and honor themselves.

Join us as we share our unique birth stories in a small group setting that is caring and empathetic.

OUR NEXT CESAREAN BIRTH SUPPORT GATHERING WILL BE SCHEDULED SOON! THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!

Meet the Facilitator

Shosh Ruskin has been with Lifecycle since 2017. She provides gynecological, prenatal, and postpartum care to our clients. Prior to coming to Lifecycle, she earned her MSN/BSN from Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions and provided reproductive and sexual health services in the Boston area.

Shosh entered this profession “because so many of us – women, queer folks, people of color, among others – have had negative experiences within the healthcare system, particularly when accessing OB/GYN care. I strive to provide care that values kindness, bodily autonomy, and shared decision making. And, it’s fun!”

She is “inspired by all things DIY, from crafting, to food preservation, to baby-making”. In addition to her work at LWC, she collaborates with Ray Rachlin, CPM to provide at-home intrauterine insemination (IUI) and fertility services for queer families, single parents, and other non-traditional families.

She lives in West Philly with her partner, Ari Lev, and their two children.

 

 

All classes, workshops, and support groups are currently being conducted via Zoom.
