Birth Trauma impacts many woman and can range form feelings of sadness, anger and disappointment to how a woman’s birth went to the development of anxiety, depression and post traumatic disorder. The birth trauma can also adversely impact on the birth partner who may also develop psychological difficulties.
In my work as a postnatal practitioner I have met many woman who are struggling to come to terms with these issues and they can also impact on our early mothering including breastfeeding difficulties, bonding issues and our wider relationships leaving us feeling quite desperate.
The wonderful news is that there is a hope in the form of a fast, non invasive and non threatening treatment which has been used to treat many forms of trauma. I used this to heal my own traumatic birth and subsequently when I have witnessed trauma in the birthing room in my work as a birth doula.
