BIRTH TRAUMA SUPPORT
All of our support therapies are natural and work with the body.
“After it is over, women often need to talk about the labor, ponder it, mull it over, and make sense of it. They have to put into words what they felt. For them labor was not experienced at a verbal or cognitive level. They have to match what happened on the inside (the inner reality) with what ‘really happened’ (the outer reality) as represented by what others saw. This process of integrating and understanding these various parts takes time and effort.” – Penny Simkin
Who might need Birth Trauma Support?
- Anyone who has given birth and feels that things did not turn out as they should have or as they expected them to.
- Anyone who feels violated or traumatized by prenatal care, the birth experience or postnatal care.

- If you are finding it difficult to enjoy your baby and motherhood, if you feel anxious or depressed.
