Biography:

Sharon Storton is an Alberta Registered Psychologist, and Canadian Registered Couple/Family Therapist, with a specialty in the support of women and families in the childbearing period. Sharon was one of the founders, a dozen years ago, of the still-active Internet-based peer-support forum, Solace for Mothers. Those years ago, few recognized the experience of trauma as it related to childbirth itself, the impact of abuse on women during the childbearing period, and the prevalence of health protocols that may lead to feelings of oppression and even depression in women and their partners.
