RESOURCES FOR PARENTS

Have you had enough of feeling bad about your birth or perinatal experience?

 

And whether it happened 6 months ago of 6 years ago do you find yourself wondering when you will begin to feel better about what happened.

 

Do you continue to be plagued by heavy symptoms and feelings that seep in to other areas of your life impacting on your ability to enjoy your life?

 

Perhaps to others, or even to yourself, you play down and minimise your feelings about what happened but really you long to reclaim the peace of mind that you once had before it occurred.

 

Are you ready to acknowledge the pain and dysfunction it is causing in your life?

Understanding the neurology of a difficult or traumatic event is the first step to acknowledging that what you are experiencing is a completely normal function of a traumatised brain, however awful that feels. It is also the first step towards healing yourself. You can learn more about that here.

 

For the past 5 years I have worked with hundreds of parents to lift the symptoms that can remain after a difficult or traumatic birth or perinatal experience.

 

The 3 Step Rewind technique that I use has been so successful that I have taught the process to over 160 birth professionals and it is practiced by perinatal mental midwives in 6 UK NHS hospital trusts. You can find a full directory of those who have taken the training here.

If you feel ready to start working on healing your experience but are unable to get to a practitioner, listed here, you maybe interested in some of the resources below.

  • Understand how what happened then continues to impact on your day to day life now. In what ways does it continue to show up in your relationships, in your behaviour and in the way you feel about yourself?
  • Use your imagination to consider what it would be like without those feelings, ways of responding, and being. If you could choose how to feel, what would you choose?
