If as a mother, father, birth partner or health professional you have been through or witnessed a traumatic birth and do not know where to turn, please get in touch.
As a midwife I have seen the devastating effect that birth trauma can have and that is why I am currently training to become a ‘Birth Trauma Resolution Therapist.’ This effective, and fast therapy aims to set women, birth partners and midwives free of birth trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). My thorough training is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and Human Givens Institute of psychotherapy, in addition I draw on my years of experience as an NLP and Hypnobirthing Practitioner, and practising NHS midwife.
Sadly around 6% of women are diagnosed with traumatic stress after childbirth. However, it is believed that a further 20 – 25% of women have symptoms that go undiagnosed, particularly if they don’t meet the full criteria for PTSD and women are mistakenly diagnosed as having Postnatal depression. Birth trauma can not only cause Postnatal depression, it can effect bonding with your baby, your relationships with your family members and cause anxiety.

If you feel you have birth trauma or PTSD please do get in touch. I am also currently looking for case studies to aid my training so all treatment is currently free.
