Birth Trauma Resolution Therapy®

Screen Shot 2018-03-13 at 10.35.59If 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.


Re-living aspects of the trauma
  • vivid flashbacks (feeling that the trauma is happening all over again)
  • intrusive thoughts and images
  • nightmares
  • intense distress at real or symbolic reminders of the trauma
  • physical sensations such as pain, sweating, nausea or trembling
Alertness or feeling on edge
  • panicking when reminded of the trauma
  • being easily upset or angry
  • extreme alertness
  • disturbed sleep or a lack of sleep
  • irritability and aggressive behaviour
  • lack of concentration
  • being easily startled
  • self-destructive behaviour or recklessness
Avoiding feelings or memories
  • keeping busy
  • avoiding situations that remind you of the trauma
  • repressing memories (being unable to remember aspects of the event)
  • feeling detached, cut off and emotionally numb
  • being unable to express affection
  • using alcohol or drugs to avoid memories

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.
