If you have found yourself here, it is likely you are looking for help.
The birth of a baby can be a time of joy and great happiness, a wonderful experience that stays with us forever. However sometimes birth can be difficult, leaving new parents struggling. Their experience can be so overwhelming, that it leaves them feeling devastated and traumatised. Instead of wonderful memories, they are left with pain and heartache. They may feel that life has become tainted by their ordeal and may have feelings they do not understand.
This is called Birth Trauma.
When Birth Trauma happens those affected can feel alone, confused, angry or even overcome with guilt. They can be unsure where to turn for help or support. Often they will be told that a healthy baby is what is important, to move on and try to forget. However when birth is traumatic it is important that this is acknowledged and support offered.
Beyond Birth Trauma evolved from Unfold Your Wings to offer to support to the many families that contacted me on the page. Using my own experience of healing from Birth Trauma developed the ‘Beyond Steps’ to support understanding your feelings around your birth and how you can heal.
