Welcome to Beyond Birth Trauma

The birth of a baby is a momentous time.

Birth can be a time of joy and great happiness, a wonderful experience that stays with us forever.

However sometimes birth can be difficult, leaving new parents struggling. Their experience can be so overwhelming, that it leaves new parents feeling devastated and traumatised. Instead of wonderful memories, they are left with pain and heartache. They may feel that life has become tainted by their ordeal and may have feelings they do not understand.

This is called Birth Trauma.

When Birth Trauma happens those affected can feel alone, confused, angry and even guilt. Those affected can be unsure where to turn for help or support. Often they will be told that a healthy baby is what is important, to move on and try to forget. However when birth is traumatic its is important that this is acknowledged and support offered.

Beyond Birth Trauma offers support, help and hope.

You do not have to struggle alone with your feelings and pain. There is help, and it is possible to heal and recover.

Beyond Birth Trauma is a place of hope and support.

You may feel like your pain will never ease, that the anger you feel will always burn. You may feel that your life is in the shadow of trauma, with no escape. But, there is hope and life beyond Birth Trauma.

All my love, Emma Jane b
