Perinatal Counselling & Birth Recovery

Emotional recovery from traumatic birth 

Therapy Session
Therapy Session

Time to be heard, time to heal

The birth of a baby comes with immense joy and hope for a new life.  But for the mother and sometimes partners, that birth journey was filled with anxiety, fear and trauma.

Current research show that 30% births leave the mother, partner or family in a state of trauma, experiencing anxiety, panic attacks and PTSD.

Of those 1.5-9% suffer PTSD.

Here are some of the signs of PTSD

Hyper vigilance



Panic attacks


Unable to think clearly


Unable to rest

Overly tidy

Feeling of disconnection

Still healing from surgery or birth

Unable to look at the baby or hold your baby

Unable to bond with baby

Reoccuring thoughts


Not feeling heard

Scared for yourself and your baby

This is the time you need to seek help!
