Birth Trauma

Trauma in Childbirth Can Stay With You

For some women, childbirth is experienced as a happy, gratifying, and empowering experience. But for others, it can be a traumatic event associated with feelings of being out of control, powerlessness, confusion, and fear. I specialize in the treatment of psychological difficulties following traumatic birth experiences and have the knowledge to treat a range of issues that can develop following a difficult birth including:

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Grief and loss

Struggling relationship with baby

Poor body image, low self-esteem

Anxieties about parenting

Psychosexual and relationship differences

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Fears about giving birth again
