COURSES FOR PROFESSIONALS

THERE ARE NOW A RANGE COURSES THAT ARE AIMED AT HCP, BIRTH PROFESSIONALS AND PRE & POST NATAL SPECIALISTS, LIKE YOU, WHO WISH TO DO MORE TO SUPPORT THE EMOTIONAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING OF PARENTS THROUGH THEIR PERINATAL JOURNEY.

 

Perhaps you work with women in the postnatal period who have suffered a traumatic birth or are experiencing high levels of anxiety.

 

Or maybe you are an antenatal teacher who struggles to help mums and dads recover from previous traumatic birth experiences to be able to prepare calmly for their next birth.

 

Perhaps you are a birth professional who has witnessed a traumatic birth or who wishes to feel more resilient emotionally.

 

Do you frequently hear distressing birth stories but feel impotent to help or support?

 

Traumatic Birth Recovery offers 3 different courses that are available as both online and in person study.

 

Each course represents a module of study which when completed together and with assessments counts towards a final Traumatic Birth Recovery ‘Practitioner’ status.

 

Each course (module) has value to birth professionals and HCP even if they do not wish to work towards Practitioner status.

'I’ve been meaning to let you know that I've now done 4 sessions of the Rewind technique with clients, all as part of my NHS role. They'd all been referred to my clinic with birth anxiety due to a previous traumatic birth. I had met them all at least once before and offered the session to them and explained what it was, and I've followed them up by telephone afterwards. I've had some lovely feedback from the mums, which is fantastic - and I'm so relieved! I'm so excited about being a practitioner as I'm really going to be able to enhance the care and support I can offer to women and help them have a positive pregnancy and birth this time round, thank you Alex! I've got 3 more mums booked in for sessions later this month and will keep you posted how they go... '
