RECOVERING FROM BIRTH TRAUMA
LETTING GO OF BIRTH TRAUMA CAN BE HARD. LET'S BUILD SOME SKILLS TO DO THAT!
You are almost blissfully happy that you have had your baby. You are fine, the baby is fine and home with your family.
Yet there is a part of you that still feels nervous; unsettled. Everyone tells you that this feeling is normal. "You're a new mother, with L plates on and just beginning to learn the subtle cues from your baby." But you find yourself crying; and low at times. Not quiet able to put your finger on what the problem is.
Current research show that 30% births leave the mother, partner or family in a state of trauma.
Of those 1.5-9% suffer PTSD.
Signs of stress maybe:
Unable to think clearly
Tiredness (which comes with being a new parent)
But, unable to rest
Feeling of disconnection
Unable to look at the baby or hold your baby
Unable to bond with baby
Internal dialogue - repeating birth story
Not feeling heard
