Betsy Winter

Through the journey of losing her daughter, Eliza, Betsy began the quest to embody the concept of “the Both” and “the And”- how during our darkest moments, we can simultaneously walk in the light and find moments of joy and gratitude. Betsy is a licensed Nia instructor and trained in perinatal death and bereavement support through Resolve Through Sharing. She offers healing movement and sacred rituals to help support bereaved mothers as they walk the road of grief and healing.
