Welcome to Beyond Birth Trauma
The birth of your baby is a momentous time and it should be a time of joy and great happiness, a wonderful experience that stays with you forever.
However sometimes the birth of your can be difficult, leaving you as new parents struggling. The experience can be so overwhelming, that it may leave you feeling devastated, even traumatised. Instead of wonderful memories, you can feel left with pain and heartache. As new parents you feel that precious time with your new baby has become tainted by your experience, and you may have feelings and emotions you do not understand.
This is called Birth Trauma.
There can be many reasons why the birth of your baby was difficult, what matters is how it has made you feel.
Birth Trauma is individual and affects everyone in different ways.
When Birth Trauma happens you can feel confusion, anger and even guilt. You can feel alone and unsure where to turn for help or support. Sometimes you may even have scary and frightening thoughts.
