It is a heartbreaking reality that traumatic births are very common in our society. In fact, most women experience birth as a deeply traumatic event that they have no control over. Yet when women try to talk about this trauma, they are told that all that matters is a ‘healthy mom and healthy baby’. This dismissive phrase is deeply damaging and such a disservice to the true meaning of health: the emotional and mental health of the mother/baby dyad matters just as much as their physical health. Women and babies deserve so much more. Did you experience feelings of grief, loss, rage, disappointment or distress after your birth? Perhaps you feel nothing at all, completely disassociated from what happened and unable to think about it. Are you experiencing symptoms of postpartum depression or anxiety? In many cases, these symptoms are caused by or augmented by a traumatic birth. Yet, mothers aren’t told this; no one helps them make this connection. They are simply offered medication without any examination of the possible root cause. There is no universal measure of what makes a birth traumatic and sometimes it can be difficult to identify our own trauma. The simple answer is if any of this resonates with your experience of birth or the postpartum period, then this session is for you. This package includes two 1 hour online video sessions in which you will: Have the time and space to share your birth experience Have your feelings and emotions validated Ask questions and begin to understand the possible reasons behind your birth outcome(s) Discuss ways in which you can process and integrate your birth experience Begin the healing process for you and your baby by discussing emotional release techniques and providing suggestions for additional mind-body healing modalities to help you move forward You will also have access to email support - as needed - as our sessions may bring up thoughts and feelings afterward that you need help with Our experiences witnessing traumatic births combined with our thorough understanding of the biological birth process provides you with a unique opportunity: the chance to explore the potential ways your birth process may have been interrupted interfered with, and/or disturbed, resulting in unwanted outcomes and trauma.
