Is there a way to heal from Birth Trauma?

No one said birth was ever easy, but what about when things go far from planned or expected? Birth trauma doesn't happen to the baby, it can happen to momma too. Birth trauma isn’t always physical, like birth injury, many times it is emotional. According to 

“Birth trauma is distress experienced by a mother during or after childbirth. While trauma can be physical (see Birth injury), it is often emotional and psychological.

Birth trauma is not just about what happened during labour and the birth. It can also refer to how you, as the mother, are left feeling afterwards. Sometimes the effects of birth trauma can emerge, and continue for, some time after you’ve given birth.”

This is not talked about enough. Birth trauma is something that I had not even heard of, until after I found myself faced by a birth that did not go as planned at all. I found myself doubting everything I knew, anxious, and in physical pain for months that doctors kept telling me was ‘normal’. So I started digging and finding a path to healing, because this ‘normal’ they spoke of was affecting my entire life and my ability to do the job I loved. 

It took me almost 2 full years of digging, researching, reading, working with different professionals, and wrestling within, but I found a path to healing from the trauma. There is hope, there is redemption, there is healing, and I want to help you find your way, without taking the 2 years I did. I created a group and course for those who are hurting, or disappointed from their birth experience. You are not alone and do not have to walk through healing alone. 

I have been there and want to help you move into redemption and healing. There is hope. There is a path forward. Join the course now can
