Therapy for Birth and Perinatal Trauma

Do you want help for birth trauma? Or maybe a trauma during your pregnancy? Or maybe your postnatal care? If you are finding it difficult to move on from a difficult time, if you find yourself ruminating over it , if you find yourself blaming yourself or feeling angry at others, if you just want to be able to understand what is happening to you, then therapy might be able to help.

Birth trauma and perinatal trauma is sadly all too common – you are not alone. If now is not the time for you to commit to therapy, why not start by reading the book, Birth Shock – How to Recover from Birth Trauma. It is designed to help you recover from any kind of Perinatal Trauma, and there’s a chapter in there for partners too. Some people find that they like to read that first, and then engage in therapy, either afterwards or as an adjunct. 

Either way, I wish you luck in your recovery journey. Please don’t hesitate to follow me on Instagram for information about birth trauma and to hear from other survivors.
